Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9830) iCloud backup should not be enabled by default
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2016 15:40:18 GMT

Chris Brody commented on CB-9830:
---------------------------------

Due to this comment: https://github.com/phonegap/build/issues/338#issuecomment-113328140

This issue has a different cause and solution than I thought.

Apparently it is *not* possible to disable iCloud backup by a setting in config.xml. If I
am not mistaken, *all* Cordova iOS apps are generated with iCloud backup enabled.

So it is up to the app developer to make sure that s/he is very careful about which files
may be automatically backed up.

I would still like to see a way for iCloud backup to be disabled for a Cordova iOS app, and
would prefer to see this be done by default.

> If someone makes a new native iOS app using Xcode, iCloud backup is NOT enabled by default,
as documented in the following locations:
> * https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/General/Conceptual/iCloudDesignGuide/Chapters/iCloudFundametals.html
> * https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/DataManagement/Conceptual/UsingCoreDataWithiCloudPG/UsingSQLiteStoragewithiCloud/UsingSQLiteStoragewithiCloud.html
> According to Apple's documentation, a developer has to create an app ID on the iOS development
portal and explicitly enable iCloud backup in Xcode (iCloud is NOT allowed if the app is using
a wildcard identifier).
> Keeping iCloud backup enabled by default configuration can trip up a new app developer
very easily. Thanks for your consideration.
