Meteor 1.2 app cannot connect to server on iOS 10


If I try my Meteor 1.2 app in the iOS 10 simulator, it sometimes works, but in most cases throws errors on the Xcode console, like these:

I’ve read through this thread:

and assume this might have to be related to the web sockets block mentioned there. But even if I apply the Content-Security-Policy meta tag as described here:

it won’t work. In this case, the app won’t even leave the launch screen. It just gets stuck.

Any ideas how an older 1.2 app can be adapted to iOS 10? Updating to Meteor 1.4 isn’t an option for now, as I know that some of my Cordova plugins are not compatible with the most recent Cordova versions.


Hi there, also have a meteor 1.2 app and it’s working fine on iOS10. As for you, updating to 1.4 is still not an option for me since I have to research new cordova-plugins. Maybe I’ll be able to help you if you share some more info.


Hi @joaopiopedreira. Thanks for your reply. I was able to solve this specific problems by adding the Content-Security-Policy meta tag via a head.html file instead of modifying the boilerplate-generator as suggested in the link. The boilerplate approach did not work, because the Meteor 1.2 build system overwrites these changes with a “baked-in” version of the boilerplate. But I still have this problem:
