How to stop unwanted UIButton animation on title change?

In iOS7 my UIButton titles are animating in and out at the wrong time - late. This problem does not appear on iOS6. I'm just using:

[self setTitle:text forState:UIControlStateNormal];

I would prefer this happens instantly and without a blank frame. This blink is especially distracting and draws attention away from other animations.



This works for custom buttons:

[UIView setAnimationsEnabled:NO];
[_button setTitle:@"title" forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[UIView setAnimationsEnabled:YES];

For system buttons you need to add this before re-enabling animations (thank you @Klaas):

[_button layoutIfNeeded];
