iPhone’s running a little slow, so you kill some apps to speed it up or save battery, right? Wrong. And with a massive fundamental change Apple made to background tasks in iOS 7, bryan explains why this advice is even more misguided now than ever.

I checked. Granted, I have four pages instead of three, but it’s there. And yes, it was flat on a table. In fact, Shadowbottle doesn’t have any of the parallax stuff enabled. Blerg.
This is one of Android’s best advantages, and it works really well on my Nexus 7. Apple, please stop ignoring this serious deficit of usefulness in iOS. Please.
You know a great way to solve this problem? Apple could set badge notifications to be off by default. An app’s privilege to tug at our attention should be opt-in, not out.
You’re probably right. As a non-dev but just-dangerous-enough power user, I’ve heard mixed bits of how iOS works in a case like this. Early on, as I understood it, iOS threw out the baby with the bathwater when you delete an app. These days it sounds like it’s evolved into some sort of “yes it holds onto some types of data in some cases and maybe iCloud can restore you data if you reinstall an app even if it isn’t built to use iCloud’s services” and the whole thing is just confusing.
Sometimes deleting an app nukes everything so you truly get a clean slate when you reinstall. Sometimes credentials are left in the keychain (which seems to be Evernote’s case). But in general it’s turned into a pretty confusing user experience these days, and a risky troubleshooting step. I don’t know how iOS will behave in these cases, and iTunes isn’t helping matters.
I can’t trust it anymore. That’s a problem.
I can’t tell if Siri is mocking me or trying to sing along.
