iOS splash screen doesn't update according to app.json

Hi, I’m getting white borders on standalone iOS app, even after I’ve added backgroundColor and resizeMode: "cover" to my app.json

I can confirm that yesterday my app’s splash screen started rendering as ‘contain’ instead of ‘cover’ when built standalone for ios.

We are expecting to deploy a fix for this before the end of the week, and are tracking the issue here.
