Possible to backport UIWebView removal to Expo 35?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 35
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS

Due to bugs in React Native 0.61 on Android (unreliablity of Linking.getInitialUrl – see https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/8408), we’ve had to downgrade our app from Expo 36 to Expo 35 so that we go back to React Native 0.59 where this works reliably.

Unfortunately, Apple is now refusing submissions using Expo 35 due to UIWebView removal – meaning we are pretty much stuck with either releasing a broken app with Expo 36+ or not being able to release at all on iOS.

Is it possible to backport the removal of UIWebView to Expo 35 so that people who want reliable deep linking can have a working app version?
