Has anyone noticed an issue with apps constantly reloading now, and not staying in memory? It seems like it's a lot more frequent since iOS 11... but I'm noticing it more since 11.01 I think. I just installed 11.02 and will see how it goes today.

I used to keep a game (Disney Magic Kingdoms), InoReader (RSS reader), Gmail, and Narwhal all backgrounded just fine -- but now it seems like at least these three always have to reload when I swap back to them.

Yes I noticed that since the first beta of iOS 11 on my 7+. Some apps seem to systematically reload after being put in background for more than a few seconds, which is very annoying !

Noticing it too but I originally attributed it to my devices only having 2gig RAM but I see most of your iOS devices listed have more than 2gig RAM.

Same for me. I’ll click into an article on Facebook to read it. Then I’ll go to another app, for instance replying to a text. When I come back, Facebook reloads entirely and I lose not only the article I was reading but also my spot in the timeline. Pretty frustrating.

This happens with the Facebook app. It’s so annoying. Can’t switch to another app without the entire Facebook app reloading and losing my place or an article I was reading or about to read. Any solutions?
