Commit 87f3c3a3ac2c7c39f74f1173109377e87bd35078 in cordova-plugin-splashscreen's branch refs/heads/master

CB-8988: Fix rotation on iOS/iPad (closes #46)

The viewController.interfaceOrientation passed to getImageName has not
yet been updated with the new orientation, even when the frame/bounds
change event has fired. Thus, the plugin never actually loads the
correct image for the new orientation. Instead, it poorly scales the
existing image.

This fix uses the statusBarOrientation property of the UIApplication
object to detect the actual orientation, and correctly load the right

> On iOS devices, if rotation occurs while the splash screen is visible, it ends up horribly/incorrectly
scaling the existing image, instead of loading the correctly oriented image.
> This happens on both iPad and iPhone -- although technically iPhone should not allow
rotation at all. (I see there is another issue tracking that for iPhone.)
> From debugging, the issue appears to be that the interfaceOrientation of the viewController
has not been updated at the time that the frame/bounds changes are observed by the plugin.
Thus, even though the frame/bounds change, the correct image for the new orientation is never
> I will provide a PR with an alternate fix shortly. I found it worked better to use [[UIApplication
sharedApplication] statusBarOrientation] to determine orientation.
