In pursuit of adaptive styling, Ionic fully supports and is well tested on the mobile platforms listed below:
|5.0+ with Chromium 60+
A Note on Android Support
Starting with Android 5.0, the webview was moved to a separate application that can be updated independently of Android. This means that most Android 5.0+ devices are going to be running a modern version of Chromium. However, there are a still a subset of Android devices whose manufacturer has locked the webview version and does not allow the webview to update. These webviews are typically stuck at the version that was available when the device initially shipped.
As a result, Ionic Framework v6 only supports Android devices and emulators running Android 5.0+ with a webview of Chromium 60 or newer. For context, this is the version that Stencil can support with no polyfills: https://stenciljs.com/docs/browser-support
To figure out what version of the webview a device is running, log
window.navigator.userAgent to the console when inspecting the application using Chrome Dev Tools.
A Note on Angular 13+ Support
Angular's support policy for iOS is the two most recent major versions. At the time of release that is iOS 14 and 15. To support iOS 13, change the project
target specified in
compilerOptions in the tsconfig.json to
es5. Without this change an error of
Unexpected token '.' in promiseReactionJob will occur on app startup in iOS 13.
Because Ionic is based on web technologies, it works just as well on desktop browsers as it does on mobile devices. For more information on desktop layouts, see Cross Platform.
