Expo app in production always opens in same screen, how to get it to open as new?

I have an Expo app in the Apple App Store.

  • When it is opened and starts — I fetch a bunch of data.
  • If I leave the app (but don’t technically “close” the app from the app switcher), then every time I open the app again, it opens on the same screen
  • This happens even if it’s the next day
  • Ideally, after some amount of time (hours?) I would like the app to fetch data, but since the previous screen persists and the component is already mounted, I don’t know how to fetch new data
  • Is there a setting for the app to “close” after a certain amount of time?

Thanks in advance!
