Default splash shows momentarily before custom splash

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 46.0.20
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.


I’m seeing an odd issue related to the splash screen on ios. I’ve added my own custom splash screen and replaced the existing one in the assets folder. I’ve updated my app.json to point to this new splash screen. It works using expo go, but when I upload to ios and use testflight, and I open the app, there is a brief moment where I see the default splash screen (the circle with the lines on it) mixed with my splash screen before my splash screen loads. So I do see my custom splash, but first I see the default one. I have already setup expo.splash.backgroundColor as well. I only noticed it by videoing my screen while opening the app. I even deleted the old splash screen png so I have no idea where this is coming from. I build using eas build --platform ios and I ran this with --clear-cache as well.

Thanks in advance for any help.
