We are happy to announce that we have just released Cordova iOS 7.1.0! This is one of Cordova's supported platforms for building iOS applications.

cordova platform add ios@7.1.0

To install:

cordova platform add ios@7.1.0

Release Highlights


  • SplashScreenBackgroundColor preference support

    This preference allows you to set the splashscreen's background colour. If no SplashScreenBackgroundColor is provided, it will fall back to the BackgroundColor, which is the current behavior, and then fallback to the system background colour when nothing is defined.

  • privacy-manifest Support

    This release supplies the templated blank privacy manifest file, PrivacyInfo.xcprivacy which can be configured from config.xml.

    This release focuses specifically on providing support for app developers to set this configuration, while a later release will introduce support for plugin developers.

    It is recommended that plugin developers help app developers by providing in their plugin documentation the necessary configuration setup.

    Below is an example config.xml entry that app developers can define to configure the privacy manifest file.

      <platform name="ios">

    The contents and values of NSPrivacyTracking, NSPrivacyCollectedDataTypes, NSPrivacyAccessedAPITypes, and NSPrivacyTrackingDomains will depend on the specific native APIs being utilized.

    It is recommended to read the Apple Developer documentation to better understand these parameters.


  • Use PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER for manual codesigning

    Allows you to use either the UUID or name value from the provisioning profile for the build flag provisioningProfile in either the build.json configuration file or via the CLI command.

  • WASM MIME type error

    Enables WebAssembly support in Cordova WebView.
