Same here. It is a few seconds long when opening the app for the first time in a while. Pretty bad eye sore if you’re in a dark area.

I’ll check it out.
Do you use dark theme for your Brave app and it still flashes with white screen?

Yes. Flash still shows up on both dark and light mode.


Can confirm this as well on 1.40 with an IPhone 13. It only happens on new launch of the browser. Not from recent apps.
Both Dark, auto theme and night mode.

This appears to be fixed in the iOS beta application. I am getting a black splash screen at startup instead of white. Hopefully it rolls out to the main release soon.
