That is exactly what I am seeing Colin. I use Dashlane, which has it's own built in browser. When I navigate away from one site and back again, I get a brief time where the cached page displays, even though the connection has timed out, and then it takes me back to a login page for that site. I think this is a device specific issue. If a user is used to this, I don't think it is a problem, unless of course the last time the site was visited, the user was viewing confidential data. Then it could be extremely critical!

Are you letting your app quit on suspend, or is it still open in the background? I can imagine cases where someone switches apps and will get the last app switching image iOS 11 kept. That is bound to be different if the app quit on suspend.
