The attached sample shows the correct UIAppearance tinging on iOS 8.0, but doesn't apply tinting on iOS 8.1

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start UIAppearance Regression.xcodeproj in Xcode 6.0 and Xcode 6.1b3
2. Observe nav bar is blue in 6.0, but white in 6.1b3.

Expected Results:
Nav bar should be always blue.

Actual Results:
Nav bar tinting is not applied in 8.1b1.

iOS 8.0 and iOS 8.1b1

This seems to be related to the PSPDFNavigationController and the way we forward rotation information. Something in there triggers UIAppearance evaluation and this changed in 8.1. I found out after trying to reproduce this in a small simulated example.

Still happening with iOS 10.0.1 GM.
