Admob interstitial close button showing up on top of clock on iOS

Recently the admob interstitial ads “close” button has been showing up on top of the clock on the iphone making the ad un-closable and forcing users to have to kill the app in order to get rid of the ad. Not only is it frustrating for the user, but it also means that we as publishers don’t get paid. This seems to be a new issue in the last week or so. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to either implement differently or fix this?

i tried implementing my own close button as seen here that shows up after a countdown timer, but it’s not appearing.

Any thoughts on how to solve?
