`UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance` is set to false. This is the old, deprecated behaviour from iOS 6 and is discouraged.
This is a problem for us. We offer an SDK for PDF viewing/editing called PSPDFKit. Getting the status bar right on iOS is tricky and we can't reasonable support both modes - so we chose the default, non-deprecated mode that exists since iOS 7.
Furthermore, the old APIs for controlling the status bar are all deprecated and unavailable when building extensions.
Here's Apple's documentation on it:
Here's our FAQ entry:
Example where this is set to false inside Xamarin's samples:
I hope that the status bar management can be updated to the modern APIs so our product will work with Xamarin.Forms. I know that this can be tricky but it's definitely a step up from the previous global-state behaviour. Let me know if you have any more issues. firstname.lastname@example.org here / @steipete on Twitter. I'm at WWDC next week so I can relay questions as well.
I think this fixes your issue: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/pull/463
Looking good - thanks!
Should be fixed in 2.3.4-pre1
