Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9703) iPad orientations can no longer differ from iPhone
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 21:20:04 GMT
Christoph Neumann created CB-9703:

             Summary: iPad orientations can no longer differ from iPhone
                 Key: CB-9703
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CordovaLib
    Affects Versions: 5.0.1, 5.1.2, 5.2.0, 5.1.1, 5.3.2
         Environment: iOS
            Reporter: Christoph Neumann

The change introduced in 93ab6b61 means that iPhone and iPad orientation values will always
be the same. Unfortunately, a universal iOS project defaults to"portrait orientation for iPhone
and all orientations for iPad. Because the Cordova "default" for Orientation in config.xml
clears all orientation settings, there is no way to get a standard behavior of having separate
defaults for iPhone and iPad.

Some ideas:
1. Make "default" actually match what Apple uses as default because clearing out all the flags
is *not* truly default behavior.
  <preference name="Orientation" value="default" />
2. Add a platform-specific preference for iPad.
  <platform name="ios">
    <preference name="Orientation~iphone" value="portrait" />
    <preference name="Orientation~ipad" value="all" />
