iOS 13 killing apps rather abruptly, users complainLast updated on Nov 01, 2019, 05:13 pm
Apple's iOS 13 problems are just not coming to an end!
Just recently, a bug in the platform broke HomePods for several users, and now, in another case, it is aggressively killing apps on the iPhones.
The issue is pretty annoying and has ruined the whole 'Apple experience' for a lot of people.
Here's all about it.
Apps getting killed in the background
According to a long series of complaints compiled by the folks at MacRumors, iOS 13 is killing background apps rather aggressively on the iPhones.
The issue triggers automatically and shuts an app down within a few seconds of switching to another memory-intensive program, say like Camera, Spotify, or iMessage.
It's been reported by several people, even those using the latest iPhone 11 family.
This effectively removes in-app progress
While the issue doesn't sound big, it does create a lot of problems when the app that gets killed has a lot of information.
Essentially, if you are in the middle of a task on one app, say like writing an email or watching a video, and then switch to another, the first app could lose all the progress you have made.
Root cause of the problem remains unclear
As the issue appears to persist on both old iPhones with dated hardware as well as new ones with the latest hardware and software, there is no saying what exactly is causing the app-killing problem.
It could be a long-standing iOS 13 bug or something that slipped with the most recent iOS 13.2 release and is now managing memory poorly, killing apps.
No word from Apple on the matter
So far, Apple has not commented on the matter or detailed why exactly apps are being shuttered in the background.
The company has been battling plenty of iOS-related issues of late, but there's a good chance that it would push an update to fix this issue and release a statement explaining the whole debacle.
It's just what the company has been doing lately.
