    Title says it all.

    To the mod that closed another thread that asked this very specific question and referred us to some master thread, please do not close this. I don't have the time or the desire to look through 30+ pages of a thread that may or may not answer this question. Thank you!

    This is my second worst bug under the Safari crashing

    Yes this needs to say in it's own thread

    Really can't be bothered when mods join threads together when there is no need, it's a flamin forum! :mad:

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeease let this be fixed!

    ----------

    Just read on Av Forums that the pages are still reloading up on iPad

    This is caused by the lack on RAM in the iPhone, it's not a software limitation.

    So if the device isn't functioning properly because of the hardware

    aren't you by law allowed a refund when returned in the UK?

    Totally ridiculous how they couldn't see this when QA was testing, surely they must have had crashes. Out of all the people in QA there must have been a few that inouted crashes while testing

    Actually it's more than ram at play IMO, as after an initial boot up it can have 10 tabs open and nothing else w/o reload but after a few days only about 3 tabs w/o reload and no other apps open. This was pre ios 7.1 on ipad 4.

    So to answer your question, I'm not sure, though I've heard that 7.1 does sort of fix it in that it won't degrade over time. So far I've had no tab reloads with several other apps open tho.

    Seems to work much better now in my iPad 2. Previously 2 tabs was usually enough for a reload. Now I hav 4 without reload. Have to use it a bit more begore final judge.

    It's so so much better. No more tab reloading for me with at least 5-6 tabs open, I can also keep three games in multitasking (before I couldn't even leave one behind it would automatically shut it down) and the sped up animations are really nice.

    Totally needed on the ipad Air.

    Tab reloading is still there. iOS 7.1 improves Safari a lot, so if you are using just a few tabs there is a good chance you won't experience lots of refreshing. If you are using lots of tabs and have many apps in the background, then get ready for some excessive refreshing...

    So far I have not had reloading pages after updating - so far, so good.

    I opened 5 tabs and then switched to 6 different apps. Then came back to each of the 5 tabs and clicked on each page to go to a different page. No reloading when I moved between tabs so far.

    I started typing this response and just switched to 6 other apps again and loaded pages in 4 other Safari tabs. Came back to this tab and my text was still here that I had started to type.

    Great improvement!!!

    This is on a retina iPad Mini - 32gb

    Tabs are better so far but the Safari crashes are still prominent for me.

    What iPhone / iPad is Safari crashing on? I don't have that problem at all (never have) on my iPhone 5 or retina iPad mini.

    Seems to have made a significant difference with my 1st Gen Mini.

    I was just experimenting with it now. I was up to nine different sites loaded on nine different tabs and was able to switch from one to the next without any reloading. Previously, it seemed to reload any tab even if I was only switching between two.

    Switched from Safari to a few other apps (no games or anything incredibly intensive), and Safari didn't reload any of the tabs - all still as they were when I left.

    I got the 32gb Air at Best Buy when it was $75 cheaper on sale.

    Your experience does not mimic what I'm seeing while using Safari. Reloading galore! I did an OTA update. 7.0.6 was pretty darn good compared to what I am witnessing now. Maybe time for a full reset, I don't have much loaded so no big deal if I want to see what happens afterwards.

    Maybe retina vs. non-retina? You would think the 1st Gen Mini would do far worse than an Air (512Mb vs 1Gb RAM). Dealing with four times the pixels, though...

    It's likely more about 32-bit vs. 64-bit architecture with the 64-bit one not behaving as well with iOS 7.0.

    Still would think that 32bit on 512Mb would be worse than 64bit on 1Gb...

    If there's some flaw in the 64-bit related code or how something is handled related to that, then the memory size wouldn't really matter.

    Well you told the mod! ... Until the mod comes here and tells you to use the search tool. All you need to do is use the search tool then go to the thread and post something like is this still the case in iOS 7.1 and then it goes to the top of the list of threads we will read it as we read this thread then we reply and every thing works out great.
