Cordova iOS 4.5.0
08 Sep 2017

We are happy to announce a minor version of Cordova iOS 4.5.0 has been released!

Three new features were added:

  1. CB-12937 - Plugins can receive handleOpenURLWithApplicationSourceAndAnnotation: now (new selector, that sends the URL with additional metadata)
  2. CB-13164 - Integrated cordova-plugin-console to build in support for window.console.
  3. CB-10916 - Support display name for iOS

Important! If you have included cordova-plugin-console in your project, you must remove it, otherwise your project will not build.

If you ever needed to disable the built in console plugin, comment out or remove the Console <feature> tag in your platform specific config.xml, and/or call this right after the deviceready event:


Other notable issues:

  1. Updated ios-deploy dependency to v1.9.2, which contains a fix for Xcode 9
  2. Updated the bundled ios-sim to v6.0.0 with support for newer iPads (and this fixes some related bugs)
  3. New <access> tag attribute allows-arbitrary-loads-for-media (which reflects the correct App Transport Security value). The old attribute allows-arbitrary-loads-in-media is deprecated.

Note: When updating iOS, make sure to save your plugins as current unsaved plugins may not be reinstalled otherwise. Run the following command in your project to save your currently installed plugins into config.xml:

cordova plugin save

To upgrade:

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform rm ios
cordova platform add ios@4.5.0

To add it explicitly:

cordova platform add ios@4.5.0
