    Hi sreedhar,

    This is currently not possible out of the box in Icenium. There is an old custom Cordova plugin that can be used for reading and writing to the settings, but Icenium does not provide a way set the Settings.bundle for the app so that your settings to be displayed in the Settings application.

    Hello Sreedhar,

    This is a follow up to let you know that it is now possible to add you app to the iOS device settings. You would still have to use the Application Preferences plugin as instructed by my colleague. In the plugin root folder, add Settings.bundle folder (right next to src and www) and add Root.plist file in it that complies to the requirements in the Apple documentation: Implementing an iOS Settings Bundle. As last step, add resource-file to the plugin.xml file to indicate you would be using settings bundle:
    Copy Code
    <platform name="ios">
        <config-file target="config.xml" parent="/*">
          <feature name="applicationPreferences">
            <param name="ios-package" value="applicationPreferences" />
          </feature>
        </config-file>
     
        <!-- Note: the ios src is based off src/ios implicitly -->
        <header-file src="src/ios/applicationPreferences.h" />
        <source-file src="src/ios/applicationPreferences.m" />
        <resource-file src="Settings.bundle" />
      </platform>

    Since this plugin is not plugman compatible, you should create plugin.xml yourself following the respective documentation: Making a Custom Plugin Plugman-Compatible.

    That's it!
