Expo splash screen gets hidden even if preventAutoHideAsync is used on iOS (not expo or Android)

  1. SDK Version: 40.0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all):iOS

[expo-splash-screen] SplashScreen.preventAutoHideAsync() no longer works in iOS · Issue #9286 · expo/expo (github.com) a closed issue already sort of describes my issue. I am using a managed workflow not bare.

The code functions correctly in Expo (even iOS expo) and Android, but on iOS release builds the splash screen gets hidden and I see the application trying to render too early.

I tried upgrading turtle-cli and expo-cli to the most recent versions and it is still occurring.
