iPhone App Rejected: first time launch the screen turns white on iPad

My iPhone only app got rejected, but when Apple tried it on an iPad x1/x2 the app turned white after the launch screen. I think the status bar is the problem, but I'm not sure. I have

View controller-based status bar appearance
in plist. And then on my first VC in a PageViewController I use
UIApplication.sharedApplication().statusBarHidden = false

The app runs as it should when it's removed from memory and reopened.

Has anyone else faced the same problem?


Some more info: After LaunchScreen my first ViewController is a PageViewController and in the first ViewController I open a loading ViewController while downloading some json. This looks/appears as an extension of the launch screen but with a animation of the image used in LaunchScreen, when the JSON is downloaded I remove it and my PageViewController shows.

self.loadingViewController = LoadingiewController()
self.loadingViewController!.view.frame = self.view.bounds


So I still have the problem. It's only in the TestFlight version. I'm manipulating the status bar from Light to Default, hidden to visible.

Under Xcode/Devices live log I get this:

<Warning>: Unable to simultaneously satisfy constraints.
Probably at least one of the constraints in the following list is one you don't want.
Try this:
(1) look at each constraint and try to figure out which you don't expect;
(2) find the code that added the unwanted constraint or constraints and fix it.
"<NSLayoutConstraint:0x13e61d790 V:|-(20)-[UIInputSetContainerView:0x13e546f30] (Names: '|':UITextEffectsWindow:0x13e544af0 )>",
"<NSLayoutConstraint:0x13e632b30 'UIInputWindowController-top' V:|-(0)-[UIInputSetContainerView:0x13e546f30] (Names: '|':UITextEffectsWindow:0x13e544af0 )>"

Will attempt to recover by breaking constraint
<NSLayoutConstraint:0x13e61d790 V:|-(20)-[UIInputSetContainerView:0x13e546f30] (Names: '|':UITextEffectsWindow:0x13e544af0 )>

Make a symbolic breakpoint at UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints to catch this in the debugger.
The methods in the UIConstraintBasedLayoutDebugging category on UIView listed in <UIKit/UIView.h> may also be helpful.


So I just noticed. If I open the app newly installed from the TestFlight popup/alert window the constraint gets broken and the app goes white. But! If I open the app from the SpringBoard the first time it works. This is so strange.


We had UIWindow.appearance().backgroundColor = UIColor.whiteColor() in `didFinishLaunchingWithOptions┬┤

Removing this line solved it.
