iOS 9 : application.setStatusBarStyle deprecated.

Just in case anyone had this issue in this video, there are 02 steps to fix this:

When Pasan goes into the info.plist file and sets

"View controller-based status bar(...)" to [NO]

+instead set it to [YES].

When Pasan changes the AppDelegate.swift

don't do it.

+instead, add this function to your ViewController.swift:

    override func preferredStatusBarStyle() -> UIStatusBarStyle {
        return UIStatusBarStyle.LightContent

Hope this helps.

Hey :

You can also set "View controller-based status bar(...) [YES]

and in your deployment window, you can set the status bar style to "light" as shown below.
