Has anyone else noticed that some background apps are being killed very, very quickly in i(pad)OS 3.2? I’ve noticed this in Safari especially: I’ll be on a website (or worse, a web app), switch away for 30 seconds or so, and come back to find the page reloading.
This is new behaviour and it doesn’t seem to be a RAM issue: I can leave a web page for the home screen and return a minute later to find Safari having to reload the page. It’s unbelievably annoying when the page requires authentication, and beyond annoying when it’s a web app who’s state is gone. This also seems to affect some apps mush more so than others. Safari seems especially susceptible, while Blink (ssh/mosh/other cool unix stuff) hasn’t been killed unexpectedly.
I understand that apps can be killed at any time, and I’ve worked with that limitation for as long as iOS has had multitasking, always without any real issue: apps would close if I ran too many other apps. This is completely new and makes my iPad (11" Pro) much, much less useful as a laptop replacement when I’m travelling, as I found out yesterday.
So… anyone seeing this or is it just me?
(I’ve tried all of the usual fixes: rebooting, hard reset, etc. Running it through the dishwasher on the gentle cycle only seems to have made things worse)
