jcesarmobile commented on issue #158: CB-13522 (iOS): Remove usage description
URL: 
https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-contacts/pull/158#issuecomment-365768993
 
 
   This was necessary because people weren't setting the value, so the empty 
default one was used and Apple was rejecting apps. Also, a few plugins were 
setting the same usage description, which was causing collisions, making it now 
work as expected.
   This was done in all the plugins at the same time, and all of them got a 
major bump update. Major bump means there are breaking changes, so people 
should read the release notes before doing a major bump.
   It was also announced on the Cordova blog.
   
   The bug only crash development apps, so I don't think it's a big issue, if 
the developer doesn't catch it in time before trying to publish, Apple will 
reject it anyway, so there is no way of this crash reaching production apps 
(unless it's an enterprise app not distributed through the app store)
   
   If you think the plugins should fail instead of crash you can create issues 
on http://issues.cordova.io/ as feature requests proposing this change. Be 
aware that contacts plugin is deprecated, so no more work will be done on it, 
but you can propose it for the other plugins.
