    So I decided to play Pokémon go again today while I was walking around town. I hadn't really played it on the iPhone 7 yet, but I never had this problem on my 6S. On my 6S if I closed the app and reopened it, it was still loaded, even if I hadn't opened it in quite some time. With the iPhone 7 almost every single time I reopened the app it would have to reload, even after just a moment or two to take a pic or send a message. I would see the splash screen while it loaded. Has anyone noticed this with the iPhone 7?

    I have been seeing this more and more. Just today I was playing Pac-man 256 and was pretty far in it. I had it paused and the phone locked. Less than 30 seconds later I unlock it to be sent back as if the app was just started again. I believe this to be the same issue closing music, podcasts and other music apps so they never continue where they were left off.

    OK, that's good to hear. Hopefully it's released before too long.

    I am on 10.1 beta with this issue still happening. I cannot say for sure on the music yet as I upgraded Friday night. The Pac-man thing happened today.
