Circular updating problem

Hey there, I have a question about the updating/upgrading process in AppFlow. Here is a scenario:

Let’s say I have a native iOS build that I push out to TestFlight loaded with my Ionic app inside. If they install the app, upon firing the app it always wants to download the app that is contained in the cloud as opposed to local which is perfectly fine with me. But it’s a jarring experience having them see an update window that we show (the first time they start the app). Is there any advice on alternatives besides not showing the update window when they aren’t logged in?
