iOS 7 Status bar with Phonegap

In iOS 7, Phonegap applications will appear underneath the status bar. This can make it difficult to click on buttons/menus that have been placed at the top of the screen.

Is there someone who knows a way to fix this status bar issue on iOS 7 in a Phonegap application?

I've tried to offset the entire web page with CSS but it doesn't seem to work.
Is there a way to like offset the entire UIWebView or just make the status bar behave like it did in iOS6?

I found an answer on another thread, but I'll answer the question in case someone else wonders.

Just replace the viewWillAppear in MainViewController.m with this:

- (void)viewWillAppear:(BOOL)animated {
    // View defaults to full size.  If you want to customize the view's size, or its subviews (e.g. webView),
    // you can do so here.
    // Lower screen 20px on ios 7
    if ([[[UIDevice currentDevice] systemVersion] floatValue] >= 7) {
        CGRect viewBounds = [self.webView bounds];
        viewBounds.origin.y = 20;
        viewBounds.size.height = viewBounds.size.height - 20;
        self.webView.frame = viewBounds;
    [super viewWillAppear:animated];
