    Hey. Since upgrading my Air to iOS 8, I occasionally get the screen flickering black when swiping between apps. It's like the system locks for a tiny pause. Very occasionally it stays on a black screen for a second or so, locked up.

    It starts happening occasionally, but when it does it flickers often.

    Switching auto brightness makes no difference.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Maybe I'm lucky enough to have this all to myself :cool:

    i wonder if they have tried to fix the reloading problem and this is how they have managed to fix it... because many have noticed that the system freezes for a second when jumping between apps/tabs.

    Its definitely worse behavior than the slight freeze / pausing (which I also get). It's like it it is associated with the same problem, just further down the rabbit hole.

    Anyhow, I had background refresh off. I've turned this back on and am testing to see if the problem persists.
