I am wondering is there a way to change the status bar color on my app on iOS? I know this comes from the system, not directly from the app settings, but it looks ugly and I want to find a solution to make it pure black as it is on the nav bar.
No, my iPhone is set to Dark Mode too. I don’t know how Safari works, since on some app loads the status bar is white, while sometimes it’s dark grey. I expect the status bar to be hard coded from the app theme along with everything else. I am just trying to say that is mismatch your predefined themes.
I also tried to turn off the “Website tinting” feature in Settings like it’s explained in this article.
For now the only solutions seems to be the meta tag which have to be hard coded, no idea how.
EDIT: Actually I managed to turn it black for a while. After I turned on “Website tinting” setting in Settings → Safari and then “re-installed” the app, the status bar got black, but only on the first launch. After I completely closed and then re-opened the app, I found it white again.
