+[CATransaction synchronize] called within transaction
This happens when more than one animations are taking place on main thread. I faced the same problem. In my case application freezes while animating the CALayer and rotating the device simultaneously. So I stopped the animation while rotating the device.
Look for the code
Make sure that animation inside this code does not overlap with your other animations on main thread.
This can show up in the logs if you use
UIWindow.rootViewController to skip storyboards altogether.
To ditch the log message you can remove the storyboard, remove the key associating the Storyboard with your app in info.plist, set
LaunchScreen.storyboard as the
Main Interface in the target and use
window = UIApplication.shared.keyWindow!
AppDelegate to get the main
window and assign your
UIViewController on it.
