iOS Testflight 2.16.4 Switching accounts does not change Safari passwords offered until sync

Not sure if this is a bug or “working as intended” or “limitation of Bitwarden on iOS”, but switching accounts in the new iOS Testflight does not automatically start using the passwords within Safari for the account you switch to. You have to sync in order for the passwords that are offered to switch. Furthermore it seems swiping down to sync does not appear to count as “syncing” for this purpose - you have to go to Settings → Sync → Sync Vault Now.

Device Type: iPhone XS Max
OS version: 15.3.1
Bitwarden version: 2.16.4 (Testflight)

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  • Sign in to first Bitwarden account in mobile Bitwarden app.
  • Go to any website and have Bitwarden fill the password - it will use the password from the first account.
  • Go back to Bitwarden app and sign in to 2nd account.
  • Go to any website and have Bitwarden fill the password - it will use the password from the second account.
  • Go back to Bitwarden app and switch back to first account.
  • Go to any website and have Bitwarden fill the password - it will still use the password from the second account.
  • Go back to Bitwarden app and sync.
  • Go to any website and have Bitwarden fill the password - it will now use the password from the first account.
