Will iOS launch an app with a silent push if the user force quits the app?

A silent push notification launches an app in the background to update content. Once a user force quits an app iOS will not launch it from a silent push notification until the user opens it again.

From the UIApplicationDelegate documentation for application(_:didReceiveRemoteNotification:fetchCompletionHandler:)

In addition, if you enabled the remote notifications background mode, the system launches your app (or wakes it from the suspended state) and puts it in the background state when a remote notification arrives. However, the system does not automatically launch your app if the user has force-quit it. In that situation, the user must relaunch your app or restart the device before the system attempts to launch your app automatically again.
