iOS background execution

This is one of the things I documented in bug report| 22149. The default
"background execution" is only for newer versions of iOS. I keep this key
in(despite the warning) so pre iOS 13(I think it's 13) installs still run in
the background.

I seem to be hitting zero for zero but here's another iOS question.

I thought all apps run in the background by default now on iOS. That isn't
happening. Switching to another app and then back to mine causes the app to
restart. I want the user to pick up where they left off.

Do we still need to select the "background execution" requirement in
standalone settings? In spite of the scary warning? Does it work?
