Guys from apache cordova are working hard on workaround for the bug, because they say that a chance that apple announce a bugfix equals to 0,0001, there are many other bugs in WKWebView, they are trying to workaround them too, but it's not easy, to introduce updated cordova they need to be sure that EVERYTHING is fixed and working without problems, this will take time...
As for apple, this WKWebView bug first encountered in ios 8 beta 4, it's still not fixed in ios 8.2 beta 4, half of year passed, still no fix, so nobody waiting for a fix now, even guys from apache.
You can use Ludei's Webview+, it's a WKWebView with workarounds, working very well, sometimes dissapointing with bugs like clearing the local storage on low memory, but it's the best export option for ios.

Here's what i got from Shazron's message on markmail

Shazron wrote:1. Integrate the "wkwebview" (pluggable webviews) branch into the 4.x
branch, instead of releasing it for the 3.8.0 branch. This is so it
will be aligned with cordova-android 4.x which has pluggable webviews
2. Once tested and reviewed, release cordova-ios 4.x branch


Waiting for a cordova-ios 4.x branch?

No, it means that guys from Apache Cordova are going to integrate the workaround for the WKWebView bug and other bugs in cordova-ios 4.0. That means that we can use WKWebView with Phonegap (Adobe's cordova) or with Intel XDK when they release it. But i don't know when they release this new cordova, they got new version every 3-4 months, so maybe in june?

Oh dear. June is too far away for our release date. I guess I'd have to find a way to package the app in less than 200mb for CocoonJS (it's about 800 right now)

Sorry, your app size is more than 200mb? How you gonna distribute it? Apple rejects apps if .ipa is more than 100mb, google applies only no more than 50mb apk's.
