    Same issue here, terrebly annoying!

     

    This is on a IPAD 4, 16GB (6GB free). Just 3 tabs open and when I switch tab's Safari keeps re-loading the tabs. It seems like that Dolphin has less problems with that, but still hapens.

     

    Gotta need a fix for that!

    I have this issue on both my iPod touch 5th gen (64gb) and my iPad mini retina (64gb). It effectively kills multitasking and Apple should not be allowed to advertise iOS 7 as having real multitasking because it obviously does not. I guess we can only hope for a fix with iOS 8, should Apple decide to aknowledge this problem as a bug and not a feature.

     

    It usually occurs when using Safari, Twitter or Readdle Documents which I all use a lot. Heck I even had to type this comment multiple times because Safari decided to reload this page (even logging me out) when I minimised Safari for a moment -.-

  • rvantwisk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    so dhuuu... this is how I fixed it:

     

    In safari config:

     

    • Clear cache and cookies
    • clear history

     

    I also had remote debugging on (I am a developer of all sorts) and I have turned it off, although I don't think this was related.

    I like to think that the ´clear cache and cookies´ did teh actual trick, teh re-loading might have come from teh fact that the cache of Safari was full and the re-loading hapaned because safari needs to re-load all resources for each tab.

    I wonder if when Apple had many of us completely wipe the phone and reinstall everything if it didn't clear our cache and cookies or clear our history?

     

    Because reinstalling the iOS didn't help any of us.

    • clear history

     

    I can't find cookies in safari, somebody want to clue me in?  My history is nearly empty because I never use Safari; I use Chrome.

    Thanks for your suggestion but clearing the history or deleting some cookies definitely won't help here.

     

    After a few months struggling with this issue it's pretty clear to me:

     

    Every memory intensive usage like browsing large websites, watching youtube videos, using maps, etc. will lead to a shortage of free memory and will cause apps to be closed by iOS or it will even cause a complete crash of the app.

     

    So the main reason for the problem is a higher memory usage of every app due to a different memory management within iOS. Perhaps it's even a bug but i guess it's more a problem of the whole architecture. (That could be also the explanation why it's not fixed yet)

     

    Perhaps there is a second problem with the API, so programmers have to use it differenz now to keep there apps in a proper "background state", but honestly i doubt it because even apps like "Settings" don't work correctly.

     

    Btw, Mail is the only app which iOS won't quit - so thats the reason why you don't notice the refresh bug there...

     

    EOI

    Forget about clearing cache, changing settings, etc, etc. Your refresh problem will eventually return. The only thing that I've found that will give temporary relief is to close all unnecessary tabs in safari, go to the app switcher and close all apps, and shut your phone down. (hold the power button and slide to power off) Once it is off, hold the power button AND the home button continuously until the apple flashes twice. (It should then remain off) When you are sure the apple won't come on again, press the power button to start your phone.

    You should see a marked improvement in app refresh problems but like I said, this is only a temporary fix.

    Settings > Safari - Clear Cookies and Data.

     

    Silly me looking for setting inside the app itself.  Anyway this isn't much of a fix - basically I have to break some of the browser's functionality to somewhat relieve the reloading problem.

     

    <Edited By Host>

  • rvantwisk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree,

     

    it's a bit fo a relieve, I noticed specially when browsing site's like Imgur that the behaviour comes back after some time.

    For my (from a programmers point of view) this looks like if cache management is flawed. I do have plenty of space free in my device (6GB) so it's clearly that Safari put's a limit on it's own cache size but doesn't have a good algorithm to purge old cache entries.

    I can imagine that safari does base it on cache headers (which make's a lot of sense) but also on a hard coded maximum cache size.

    With nowday's fast internet it's easy to reach that hard coded cache size and items are not flushed because the cache header's say it's not time yet. So I can imagine some fix needs to be done in this area?

     

    well,

    hope we get a fix for this sometime soon and some developer at Apple is working on this bug.

  • chronicon helveticum Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I wouldn't hold your breathe on a fix any time soon. All effort will be on iOS 8 which may, if rumours are to be believed, include split-screen multitasking. This is either good news or a whole new can of worms ...

  • ronfromtoronto Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Kobe Bryant is having secret ( ok maybe not so secret ) meetings with Jony Ive. Maybe the new iPad is called pro because it will be designed with the help of a Pro and it will survive being thrown through a net which is something we all feel like doing when we are working on something, switch out of it and switch back and it's all gone.

  • lforbes Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    So I found another 80 page post about iOS 7 Memory Crash issues on iPad Air. Sounds very similar.

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5532206?start=0&tstart=0

     

    I have an iPad 2 only 2 years old and it won't run iOS 8 so I want them to fix iOS 7 before they abandon it.

  • lforbes Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Get you ipad crash logs.

     

    Open Settings - General - about - diagnostics and usage - automatically send and you can also view here too.

  • lforbes Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Here is the article where Apple admits it. They were "suppose" to fix it with iOS 7.1 but no luck yet.
