I have this across all my devices which include 6S and mini 4. Anyone else?
It seems to happen once at first (like after a restart) but then it seems to be fairly smooth. Might depend on the widgets and if they are trying to reload or something like that as well.
This is tied to the setting "Background App Refresh".
If you have it turned off to save on data and battery life, then each time you slide open the widgets they refresh their data at that moment and it takes a second or so. Depending on the app and its behavior, turning Background App Refresh to "on" will keep these continually updated but will hurt your battery life and data consumption.
This happens regardless of background app refresh. It is just not optimised.
I don't have background refresh enabled and most of the time my widgets are updated and there's no refreshing or stuttering when scrolling or anything like that.
This is correct, because springboard runs in the background regardless. So widget content(iOS 10+) doesn't need spontaneous refreshing.
I can't believe that is the case as I travel around the world quite frequently and am very cautious with my data. If turning background app refresh on/off has no bearing on the amount of data these widgets use I'd have gone over my data plan, or at the very least it would be showing me data consumption in cellular settings, etc.
Or are you saying this is new to iOS 10 and prior versions worked differently?
Worked the same way for me in iOS 9 and 8 as I've had background refresh off all the time.
There's good reason to believe so.
Well iOS 9 reloaded all my widgets upon launching NC today view, and iOS 8 didn't. But I've got BAR on. Curious.
Reloads every time?
Every single time. I have to wait before any interaction is possible.
