[Dark mode] Fix iPad split view appearance #12521

merged 2 commits into from Sep 20, 2019

commented Sep 19, 2019

Fixes an issue that @rachelmcr discovered with the split view on iPads in dark mode. I don't think this entirely fixes the underlying issue, but it does resolve it for now. Really, we need to re-do the splitview implementation at some point.

I also resolved an issue where the status bar text color was dark instead of light.


To test:

  • Build and run on iPad, iOS 13
  • Launch the app to a view like Me
  • Enter iPad multitasking (on the simulator, hold Cmd+shift and double-tap H)
  • Select another app
  • Enter multitasking again
  • Select WordPress
  • Before this patch, the detail pane would switch into dark mode.

Update release notes:

  • I have considered if this change warrants user-facing release notes and have added them to RELEASE-NOTES.txt if necessary.

I tried a couple of different things but couldn't entirely repro the original issue on a physical iPad or in the simulator – my status bar colour was consistently wrong afterwards though.

Testing this branch fixed the status bar issue I was seeing, so I'm comfortable shipping it. WDYT?
