Apple’s release of iOS 13 has been anything but smooth due to number of problems at the time of release. For instance, several users complained about iOS update bricking their HomePod. Apple was quick to address the issue by releasing iOS 13.2.1. However, a large number of users are complaining that the aggressive memory management is causing apps to close in the background after a short time.
If you iPhone user, then you might already know that iOS has always been notorious for background apps to free up RAM. As a result of this, iPhones have consumed lower power than their Android counterparts. However, iPhones at the moment contains more RAM compared to previous generations of iPhones. As a result, it’s not unreasonable to expect that the apps on iOS would be able to keep running in the background for a longer period of time.
However, a large number of users are complaining about the aggressive nature of latest iOS update as it is killing of background apps just after a short while. According to a report from MacRumors, iOS 132.2 is more aggressive than the earlier versions of iOS when it comes to managing resources.
At the moment however, it’s unclear if Apple intentionally brought this feature with the latest update. But since the users are complaining about the recent problem breaking their workflows, we will have to wait to find out if Apple addresses the problem in the coming days.
