I have an app that is working properly. I add in the status bar plugin without changing anything else. I run it on the simulator on iOS 10 on an iPhone 7 and the screen goes black after the launch screen disappears. Tried different emulators and on the live device all with the same results. I add in the preferences to StatusBarOverlaysWebView and still nothing happens better. I uninstall the plugin and then everything works properly again.
cordova-plugin-statusbar 2.2.1 "StatusBar"
In the app I am also running these plugins that were in place and working prior to trying the status bar plugin:
cordova-plugin-splashscreen 4.0.1 "Splashscreen"
cordova-plugin-whitelist 1.3.1 "Whitelist"
