Cordova Screen Orientation Ios issue

When I change orientation on Android, it works perfectly, I have a console and it shows portrait-primary and landscape-primary but when I use this in IOS Xcode or real device. When phone is rotated to landscape it shows portrait-primary and it behaves weird and inconsistent.

    This has happened to me as well and its really annoying that same code works on android but not on ios. In ios cordova-screen-orientation takes some time to refresh current orientation and I added a timeout 200ms which works on both platforms.

    Example code:

    this.screenOrientation.onChange().subscribe(() => {
                    setTimeout(() => {
                        if (this.screenOrientation.type.includes('portrait')) {
                            // Portrait
                        } else {
                            // Landscape
                    }, 200);
