Remove Previous View Controllers From View Hierarchy After Update From Background

- 1 answer

I want to remove previous view controllers from view hierarchy after update my app from background. To achieve this, I set background fetch completion handler.

func application(_ application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplicationLaunchOptionsKey: Any]?) -> Bool {
  
  UIApplication.shared.setMinimumBackgroundFetchInterval(1200)
  return true
}
func application(_ application: UIApplication, performFetchWithCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping (UIBackgroundFetchResult) -> Void) {
        // reload occur
        reloadApp()
        completionHandler(.newData)
}

For reloading, I instantiate ViewController from StoryBoard.

func reloadApp() {

   // previous ViewController Stack has not been removed.

   let rootStoryBoard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main", bundle: nil)
   let rootVC = rootStoryBoard.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "MainTabBarController")
    rootVC.view.layoutIfNeeded()
    UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.rootViewController = rootVC
    UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.makeKeyAndVisible()
}

This approach reloads new ViewController correctly. But, I still have previous view controllers. Below image shows my situation.

Any ideas about this problem?

if let therootController = UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.rootViewController {
    // If rootViewcontroller is navigationController then pop to root if any controllers has been pushed, dismiss if any controllers has been presented.
}
UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.rootViewController = nil
let rootStoryBoard = UIStoryboard(name: "Main", bundle: nil)
let rootVC = rootStoryBoard.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: "MainTabBarController")
rootVC.view.layoutIfNeeded()
UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.rootViewController = rootVC
UIApplication.shared.keyWindow?.makeKeyAndVisible()
