Brief google searches seem to suggest that since a-not-yet-determined
version of iOS the lack of the relevant plist key (exits-on-suspend)
means that the app will not exit on suspend... I found a reference to
saying this change happened in iOS11 onwards - but couldn't find an
explicit reference to it.

So, in theory, that means that not having the key will mean your app
should work the same on iOS11+ (again, this isn't anything I've tested
myself, just info gleaned from google).

Warmest Regards,
