iOS background behavior

Is it a rejection or a warning. I just submitted an app in January and
received a warning and was approved. Are apps now being rejected if the
'UIApplicationExitsOnSuspend key is included? What about devices not running
iOS 13. I test on an iPad mini running iOS 12.4.5. If this key is eliminated
then older devices or devices not updated to iOS 13 will shut the app down
when losing focus even if iOS 13 enables background execution by default.

In iOS 13 I thought all apps run in the background automatically. Mine
isn't, you end up on the login screen every time you switch apps or answer a
phone call.

We used to be able to turn on "enable background execution" in standalone
settings but as I understand it, Apple now rejects apps that use that. How
would I get my app to stop shutting down every time you leave it? Or am I
wrong about the background option in standalone settings?
