iOS 11.2 sometimes AASA file is not updated after app installation/reinstallation

Product:iOS Product Version:11.2+
Classification: Reproducible:Sometimes
 
Sometimes, on any iOS 11.2+, the AASA file is not being updated after the application is installed. In that case, the only way to update it is to delete the app, restart the device, and install the app.
This was reproduced on multiple iPhone devices.

Applications that were installed on the device before the update will continue working, however, upon reinstalling - they may stop working.

Also on iOS 12

Still happening even on iOS 12 Beta 1.

Same issue here. With no changes, the same Universal URL works in a very unstable way.

Still exists on 11.3.1

11.3.1 still has this issue.

This is happening for me as well. I see some requests to the AASA file in the access logs but most installs (incl. tests I do from my devices don't).

We are also noticing this happening randomly and some customers are impacted, any ETA will be useful.

I've seen this happen with a number of apps too. I can see the AASA file intermittently fail to download after an install.

This is reproducible for customers on our platform, and is not resolved as of iOS 11.2.6.

Still seeing this intermittently after iOS 11.2.6 update ...

Some developers using our SDK (appmetrica.yandex.com) are having this issue. Effect is the same and no stable factors affection the reproduction of the issue.

This is really bad. We use Universal Links as part of our initial user experience, and it's randomly causing lots of problems for our end users.

Got some reports from customers. Can reproduce sometimes also.

This is causing big problems for us. The AASA file is not downloaded most of the time on fresh installs.

We believe this is happening with an app we are currently shipping upon returning from an authentication site via Safari.

Same for me. Very hard to reproduce as it appends randomly with my customers.
