Unable to programmatically dismiss/disable instant markup screenshot presented in iOS 11

Number:rdar://32707749 Date Originated:12 June 2017
Status:Closed Resolved:No
Product:iOS + SDK Product Version:iOS 11 Beta
Classification:Suggestion Reproducible:
In my application, I have functionality where I detect when a user takes a screenshot, then I present this screenshot for annotation and markup.

The appearance of the instant markup popover confuses the user and reduces UX quality in my app for this feature, as the user might not know which screenshot to annotate. Also the popover will cover a part of the screenshot that is supposed to be annotated.

I tried to go through the documentation of new/existing iOS APIs to figure out where this happens and how to deal with it the way I described, but with no luck.

Steps to Reproduce:
As I said, it's not a bug but it greatly interferes with my app's UX.

Expected Results:
I expect when I take the screenshot, to be able to dismiss the instant markup screenshot represented by the system immediately.

Observed Results:
The instant markup screenshot covers an essential part of my app's window and greatly confuses the user.
