The blog also mentions that a lot of users on the TestFlight version of the Business app are complaining that the splash screen has slowed down their app. However, WABetaInfo says that they have found no effect of the splash screen on the app's performance.

If you do get the slot, before you move to the beta version, make sure you back up all your content. So, if the beta version has any bugs and your app crashes, all your data will still be safe on iCloud.
