    Hi everyone !

    I know this bug was reported a lot of time, but I don't find any solution...

    What I want is simple : open a file or website in native browser from my application. I already did that into an previous application but, I don't know, this time it doesn't want to work !

    My code :

    <a onclick="window.open('http://www.google.com', '_system');">LINK</a>

    In the properties, InAppBrowser is ON. But when I click, it opens the link into my app and not into the native browser.... Cordova 3.7

    I tested it on an iPhone 3 & 5C.

    Do you have any idea ? 

    Best regards,

    Hello Audrey,

    I am not aware of any particular issues with opening an external link in the system browser on iOS when using the InAppBrowser. I attached a sample solution where I tried to replicate the issue but to no avail. Can you try to modify it to demonstrate the issue.

    My only idea about what might be causing the issue on your side is to check the iOS preferences enabled in the app - there might be something disallowing the app to open external pages in the system browser, although this is merely a wild guess.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
