Any known memory leakers or 'bad' apps with iOS 10.0.2?

    I have an iPhone 7 Plus running 10.0.2 and I've noticed that after 24-48 hours after a reboot the phone starts having really weird behavior. Apps constantly refresh when I go back to them, Springboard restarts (black screen with spinning icon in middle), battery life is not as steady, etc. etc.

    I restart my phone and again for the first 24 hours or so it is amazing - everything runs smooth, apps don't refresh and battery life is stellar. So point being there is either a system app (more likely) or some user app I am using that is causing a memory leak or some other issue.

    Has anyone experienced anything like this or knows about apps that have a tendency to cause problems? For example I used to have Google GBoard installed but after uninstalling it things are better overall. Wondering if people know of other apps like this?

    I think i finally have to give up on Atomic browser (at least the lite version). they haven't updated in forever but was still working perfectly fine even through iOS 9.3.5.

    With 10, video playback is sporadic (sometimes doesn't play at all) and can no longer see full content of flyout menus, for example -- in the settings flyout menu, can only access disable/enable private mode, can't get to any other settings.

    Same here. For example: I go to bed and put the device in airplane mode. The next day, I start using last apps I have used during the night, and almost all, are closed. Strange behaviour.

    The overnight behavior has been there since iOS 9 and my iPhone 6S. I truly believe (no real proof) that this is because of iCloud backups running at night. I assume that process running and possibly iOS closing apps to avoid backing up data that is changing is what causes that.

    I would hazard to guess if you turned off iCloud backups it wouldn't do that. However what's odd is you have airplane mode on so it obviously isn't backing anything up but maybe it's still spinning up the process to try?!

    I don't use iCloud backups, so I'm not sure this strange behaviour is because of this.

    Hm, this is weird. Just for counterpoint, I've used iCloud backup for *years* and have never seen this behavior and I have hundreds of apps (not necessarily any 'bad' ones!). I'd really think this issue is more due to a bad app.
