upload widget permission message rejected by app store

Heya guys, 

I'm using the upload widget in my mobile app. part of the widgets functionality on a mobile device allows access to the camera.  the permissions request text is a bit too generic / sounds a bit sinister.  

"we access your camera to take pictures."

The App Store has rejected my app and requested a more informative message but I have no idea where to override this since its not a plugin.  I'm already using a plugin in the extensibility settings.  Can I override this in extensibility without it being a plugin?  really not sure where to change this.  any help would be much appreciated.


Hi Steve, 

Thanks for posting this, we are have the exact same issue and I clearly see you used an extension plugin to add a more meaningful description, we have attempted a few scenarios however none seem to work. 

We have tried adding 

<edit-config target="NSCameraUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="overwrite">
    <string>**More meaningful explanation**</string>
<edit-config target="NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="overwrite">
    <string>**More meaningful explanation**</string>

However when building the app, we are presented with the following error:

Failed to install 'cordova-plugin-edit-plist-file': Error: There was a conflict trying to modify attributes with <edit-config> in plugin cordova-plugin-edit-plist-file. The conflicting plugin, undefined, already modified the same attributes. The conflict must be resolved before cordova-plugin-edit-plist-file can be added. You may use --force to add the plugin and overwrite the conflicting attributes.

I'm not sure if you faced the same issue and how to resolve it?

You guidance would be very appreciated
