Seems to be a workaround here:

> When using wkWebView, Javascript execution is totally stopped after the app is backgrounded
by the user. This is a major problem for apps using background modes as no javascript callback
will be executed unless the app is either in the foreground or was already terminated by the
user / OS.
> example: cordova-plugin-geofence's javascript callbacks will not trigger after the app
was backgrounded but will however trigger if the app is in the foregrounded or was killed
by the user / OS.
> UIView does not have this problem.
