Stop quitting apps

File 20-07-2017, 18 40 53

In fact, apps frozen in the background on iOS unfreeze so quickly that I think it actually helps perpetuate the myth that you should force quit them: if you’re worried that background apps are draining your battery and you see how quickly they load from the background, it’s a reasonable assumption to believe that they never stopped running. But they do. They really do get frozen, the RAM they were using really does get reclaimed by the system, and they really do unfreeze and come back to life that quickly… More at DF.

Good advice from Mr Gruber.

  1. Probably brilliant for them that iOS has no blue screen of death, just a quiet return to the homescreen… saves a ton of bad PR about janky apps
