WKWebView (iOS)

We can replace the default UIWebView in your MobileFirst hybrid iOS Cordova app with WKWebView.


From IBM MobileFirstâ„¢ Platform Foundation V8.0.0, we can integrate WKWebView with your hybrid iOS Cordova MobileFirst app.

WKWebView provides an improved WebView. WKWebView displays interactive web content, such as for an in-app browser.


To get started with WKWebView, install the WKWebView plug-in to our Cordova project.

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine


After your app is created, Cordova uses the WKWebView component instead of the default UIWebView component.

Note: To learn about known issues with WKWebView plug-in, see wkwebview-known-issues.
