I use a program called Battery. It tells a user if their IOS device needs to perform a memory clear, battery usage, etc. I've noticed that with my (1 gen old) iPod Touch 64gb my ram is always running out. I don't know why, but it's really frustrating me. I've done 3 restores on my iPod and have set it up as a "New iPod". I've carefully put back the absolute necessary apps on it. I have no music, photos, etc. I only have 36 apps total. I've set every app's location request to "Disallow" and have turned off most "Background Refresh" on each app. I know the battery app is telling the truth when it comes to having my memory hogged. I've even have had Apple take a look at it. My iPod gets very responsive after the refresh is performed. I'm completely out of ideas on how to fix my iPod. Do I need to have less apps on it? Are there certain apps that are known for taking up a large amount of ram? I can list the apps I have if that helps. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
