        Ive created a navigation which pushes a view controller that contains an image view and a button which adds the same view controller each time the button is tapped. After each tap the memory grows and after each back tap the memory is not released despite deinit being called. There is nothing in the code that points to a memory leak is there something I am missing thank you?

        class ViewController: UIViewController {
             lazy var nextButton:UIButton? = {
                let button = UIButton(type: .roundedRect)
                button.setTitle("Next", for: .normal)
                button.addTarget(self, action: #selector(nextButtonTapped), for: .touchUpInside)
                button.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
                button.backgroundColor = UIColor.red
                return button
             lazy var imageView:UIImageView? = {
                let image = #imageLiteral(resourceName: "DJI_0014")
                let imageView = UIImageView(image: image)
                imageView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
                return imageView
            override func viewDidLoad() {
                // Do any additional setup after loading the view.
                guard let imageView = self.imageView, let nextButton = self.nextButton else{
                    print("imageView, nextButton are nil")
                self.view.backgroundColor = UIColor.white
                    imageView.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.leadingAnchor),
                    imageView.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.bottomAnchor),
                    imageView.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.trailingAnchor)])
                NSLayoutConstraint.activate([nextButton.centerXAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.centerXAnchor),
                    nextButton.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.centerYAnchor, constant: 0),nextButton.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 200),nextButton.widthAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 200)])
            @objc func nextButtonTapped(){
                print("next button tapped")
                self.navigationController?.pushViewController(ViewController(), animated: true)
            deinit {
                print("view controller is deinitialized")
