Hiding status bar not working Swift 3, Xcode 8.0

Set Target/General/Deployment info to Hide status bar.
Set None for Status Bar in VCs in storyboards.
Added the following code to all VCs.

override var prefersStatusBarHidden: Bool {
return true

Briefly hides status bar but immediately reappears.


Only the prefersStatusBarHidden of the root-level view controller matters — here, the split view controller. The split view controller wants a status bar; it gets a status bar. That is all that matters.

You could try subclassing UISplitViewController, setting prefersStatusBarHidden in your subclass, and using that subclass in the app.
