    jaypm55, don't be annoyed with your iPad mini - it's a beautiful piece of kit. But be very angry with iOS 7 and Apple who have pointedly refused to acknowledge or fix the problem.


    Another poster referred to being a 'glass half full' sort of guy. My glass was similarly stocked back in November but is empty after 7 months of natural evaporation ...


    Even after all the disappointments we have faced during this time, I had remained confident that iOS 8 will solve our problems. While I recognise that iOS 8 is still in beta, my hopes are looking less sustainable.


    I am reluctant to cut off my nose to spite my face - the App Store has some great apps for content creation in imaging, video and text - but the iPad Air 2 is looking less tempting as a replacement to my iPad 2. Perhaps Apple just couldn't care about the smallish proportion (we have no idea) of power users that have this problem. A sale is a sale whether the user is a light or a heavy user though it could be argued that a heavy user buys more from the App Store. So perhaps Apple is just going for lowest-common-denominator functionality.

    What a depressing thought.

    I know what you're saying. I love my iPad mini to bits. It sat on my lap for 2 months while we were on holiday, but I nearly threw out the window several times when the mapping app kept refreshing, did Google Chrome, my Gmail, Safari, WikiCamps, you name it! I was emailing back and forth to HEMA until I found this group and forwarded them the links so they could see for themselves and hopefully as app developers, they might make waves. We can but see. I actually hate the thought of going to another type of tablet.

    Buy an Android tablet. They are very powerful and they don't lag any more like how they used to earlier. They come with a lot of RAM and can multitask with ease without any trouble. My friend was gonna buy 5S. I convinced him to buy HTC One M8 after I showed him how both the devices multitasked.

    this is about iOS, not about Android. You advice is also flacked because it really depends what sort of Android device you buy. There are a lot of un-educated people also reading this and you put them on the wrong track. They buy a 50usd android device and whada you know, it will lag because it's a cheap device.

    The sort of advice on any forum should be about how to solve a particular problem, not how trolling, flaming or giving gauge solutions.

  • bs.007 Level 1 Level 1

    If people are spending 500-600 dollars for a product, they should have enough knowledge regarding their device's hardware and it's competitors and their hardware. They should have enough knowledge regarding their high end android device like with minimum snapdragon 800 SoC coupled with 2GB RAM.

    Look at the no. of posts on this forum. Does it look like Apple is gonna help you? iOS 8 beta 2 came out yesterday. It still has the same bug. I tried it on my spare 5. 

    PS- My iPhone 5 is spare and 4S primary because of a speaker issue.

    you are wrong here. People that have money don't necessarily have the knowledge of the product they are buying. Ever bought a car and you know the in's and out's, ever bought a house and know the ins and out's? and I don't mean like 'yeas that looks good' but know about structure, concrete types, foundations. Eve bought clothes and know about weaving and it's different types qualities and colourings?

    You cannot expect people to know everything, people also buy things because they hear it works, or they just like it.

    Please give proper advice and don't expect people with 500usd or more to 'have the knowledge'.

    I agree with you, bs.007. The time for fretting about staying strictly on topic has long passed. There is clearly no solution coming from Apple and we have exhausted all attempts at solving it ourselves.


    A valid solution to the problem of having a working, multi-tasking device must surely involve looking at suppliers other than Apple given that they appear to be incapable of meeting our requirements.


    GIven the technical nature of this thread I suspect that most of the posters will be of above-average technical ability and will be able to investigate the pros and cons of alternative devices quite well.


    A year ago, I would not have dreamt of considering an Android device to replace my iPad. Now it's becoming a viable alternate.

    Good lord, you are a dick.

    bs.007: I have an iPad Mini Retina and a second gen Nexus 7 tablet.  Nexus is OK, but the video playback on the iPad is superior both in clarity and smoothness.  iPad is an overall better experience....for I don't fall victim to the bug where switching between apps loses your place.


    Note to All: I own 4 Apple devices all running the latest iOS 7.1   None of them exhibit this behavior, where app switching loses the current state of the app.


    I wonder if there's a setting, or combination of settings, somewhere that might be causing this problem that has everyone so upset.....Myself, I was able to get rid of a similar bug where Safari ONLY was constantly refreshing, by simply turning Off the Auto Brightness. 


    Good luck to all.....

    Ok there is something very very weird. I am using modified version of iOS 7.0.6. I got a tweak to display free RAM in the status bar. At times with all applications close, sometimes the free RAM just drops drastically. From 250MB to like 30-40MB. At this point if I launch the Camera, and click the shutter button. It crashes. I do it like that for 2-3 times more, it keeps crashing and then suddenly free RAM jumps to 240MB. I am unable to diagnose this as to what is eating up RAM.

  • bwilliamsdc Level 1 Level 1

    Camera does seem to be a hungry app.  I've had situations before where I'm streaming audio - Spotify or the NPR app - and go to take a photo and it will immediately kill the audio and crash the audio app.  Especially if HDR is turned on.  Another thing that never happened in iOS 6...

  • bs.007 Level 1 Level 1

    Yes. I am unable to find the reason. Rebooting seems to fix it temporarily.


    If anyone is using a modified version of iOS on 4 or 4S, please let me know. I want to know the free RAM available with all applications in the app drawer closed.
