Github user hollyschinsky commented on the issue:
    @filmaj @urmx @tobiasviehweger It's a bit confusing with iOS because the status bar styling
has changed several times and the `blacktranslucent` and `blackopaque` were deprecated in
    My blog post was correct at the time but since the deprecation, the code in the StatusBar
plugin has been updated. If you look at these methods now, those two deprecated styles are
[only specifically applied when the version is pre 7](
Otherwise that code will set it to the `UIStatusBarStyleLightContent` style - which is light
foreground color (white text). This is the recommended setting [based on the apple docs](
for those deprecated values. 
    Also, make note that the `lightcontent` style preference is [automatically added to the
platform config.xml](
when you add the StatusBar plugin for iOS. So unless the developer specifically sets something
else for that it in the root project config.xml, that is going to be what is set by default
(not to be confused with the `default` style setting itself which is the opposite and dark
foreground color (black text) for light backgrounds :/).
