When the app opens changes to the UITableView flash by really fast

I have a UITableView which gets its data from a Core Data stack. Functionally this works as expected.

What I however have noticed is that sometimes when you start the app you see past changes (made i.e. on a different device) flash by. The also happens when the app is installed on an new device and the iCloud-Data is not fully loaded. Depending on the amount of changes it can take a second or two for all the table cells to be added, changed, deleted again. If the user is patient then all is good and the correct data is displayed after a few seconds. If the user however interacts with the data, which ist just flashing by because it is being updated it can obiously cause the app to crash.

How can I prevent the, what I can only assume is merge data from displaying directly to the UITableView? Here are the probably relevant parts of my code.

- (void)viewDidLoad {

    [super viewDidLoad];
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(persistentStoreDidImportUbiquitousContentChanges:) name:NSPersistentStoreDidImportUbiquitousContentChangesNotification object:[[MyDataModel sharedDataModel] persistentStoreCoordinator]];
    [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] addObserver:self selector:@selector(persistentStoreDidChange:) name:NSPersistentStoreCoordinatorStoresDidChangeNotification object:[[MyDataModel sharedDataModel] persistentStoreCoordinator]];

- (void)persistentStoreDidImportUbiquitousContentChanges:(NSNotification *)notification {

    dispatch_async(dispatch_get_main_queue(), ^{
        NSManagedObjectContext *mainContext = [[MyDataModel sharedDataModel] mainContext];
        [mainContext mergeChangesFromContextDidSaveNotification:notification];

        [self reloadTableData];


- (void)persistentStoreDidChange:(NSNotification *)notification {

    [self reloadTableData];


- (void)loadLists {

    NSFetchRequest *fetchRequest = [NSFetchRequest fetchRequestWithEntityName:[List entityName]];
    [fetchRequest setPropertiesToFetch:@[@"name"]];
    [fetchRequest setFetchBatchSize:40];

    NSSortDescriptor *sortByName = [NSSortDescriptor sortDescriptorWithKey:@"name" ascending:YES];
    [fetchRequest setSortDescriptors:@[sortByName]];

    _fetchedResultsController = [[NSFetchedResultsController alloc] initWithFetchRequest:fetchRequest
                                                                    managedObjectContext:[[MyDataModel sharedDataModel] mainContext]
    _fetchedResultsController.delegate = self;

    NSError *fetchRequestError = nil;
    if (![_fetchedResultsController performFetch:&fetchRequestError]) {
        NSLog(@"Error while fetching lists: %@ %@", fetchRequestError.localizedDescription, fetchRequestError.localizedFailureReason);

- (void)reloadTableData {

    [self loadLists];
    [_tableView reloadData];


Thanks in advance
