Hey all,

Has anyone noticed memory issues with iOS 10 on the iPhone 6s series of devices?

Ever since upgrading when trying to multitask, whatever app I am bringing back to focus has to reload, sometimes even losing the data that I previously was using.

My free space is fine and I am using 10.0.2.

Thanks
David

I've noticed it on my iPad.

I'm going to try and do a video later tonight. It's very frustrating. I was just trying to log into an app. Went to my home screen, opened 1password, then went back to the original app I was using. It took my back out of the app like I was just opening it. The login screen was no longer in focus.

Well I just bit the bullet. I made sure i had a good icloud backup then did a full reset. We'll see how it goes.

Tonight,on the way home if I clicked out of Waze then went back into it, I had to restart my whole "trip".

The iPhone 7 is worse on IOS 10 than the iPhone 6s+ even with 1GB more memory

And at the same time others are having great experiences with iOS 10 with iPhone 7 line of phones and even earlier models.

Make sure you have programs enabled to run in the background. If you don't then yes it will stop when you switch to another app.

Enabled to run in the background? They are all enabled to a degree that iOS allows them.

Think he means background app refresh, stands to reason iOS will keep stuff in memory if that's on

iOS 10 is definitely more aggressive with ram management. I've noticed this since the first Developers Beta on my 6s Plus.

iOS 10 isn't "aggressive ram management." It's a bloated pig that uses up all available ram to do cutie pie things like balloons and bubble pop ups everywhere.
