How to change the iOS navigation's bar background-color

To make a website fullscreen on iOS, add the following to index.html header:

<meta name = "viewport" content = "width=device-width, initial-scale = 1, shrink-to-fit = no">

iOS Safari notch color

You can change the bar's color behind the URL by setting the theme color (no need to modify the CSS). For example, let's change the background to black:

<meta name = "theme-color" content = "#000000">

iOS Safari notch color black

Or to navy:

<meta name = "theme-color" content = "#243b55">

iOS Safari notch color navy

If you remove the theme-color meta tag, iOS will decide the background color (generally it'll use the same color as the one in the body).
