im really confused by this. it seems like apple has advertised a feature that was always there, and removed it at the same time. According to the advertising, ios 7 has a new feature App Background Refresh, where apps can update themselves and get new content when not at the forefront. this isnt new. my daily newspaper and monthly magazines used to download happily in the background under ios 6. now that they've promised this as a feature, it no longer does it. i go into settings and the tickbox is ticked for it, but whenever i open my daily record app, i then have to twiddle my fingers for 5 minutes whilst it downloads. it wont even download when the ipad is on but that app isnt at te forefront, whereas under ios 6, the thing could be asleep with another app at the forefront and i'd wake up to my newspaper. very annoying.
