Apple iOS 13 is reportedly killing background apps more often. The latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system has been off to a rocky start since its release in September. Since Apple started the beta program, the update was dubbed as one of the Bugist software releases. Apple released iOS 13.2 this week addressing some previous issues. Now it seems that the new version is also ridden with bugs and iPhone users are complaining about it.
Apple iOS 13: Here’s a look at the known issues
Complaints compiled by MacRumors suggest that many users have memory management issues. IOS 13.2 users are aggressively killing software reports in the background. This seems to be a memory management problem and as a result some users lose data in other applications. This happens when users switch from one application to another which may be more memory intensive. This seems to be happening for a few seconds even with an app like Camera or iMessage.
I thought it was just a beta thing, but iOS’ memory management has taken a big step back — as in, back to the pre-multitasking days of quitting and launching apps instead of switching between them.

Compiled feedback from iOS 13 users makes it clear that iPhone users are having a hard time. Software bugs have completely broken iOS 13’s multitasking feature. With the new iPhone models getting better components, software optimization is expected to improve. It is unclear whether this is a bug-related issue in iOS 13 or just affects something dubbed the new version iOS 13.2. The update can affect not only the old model but also the new model.
Since the release of iOS 13 in September, there have been reports of RAM management issues on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models. Even iPadOS users start having problems with their iPad Pro. The exact cause of the issue is known so far and users are reporting loss of progress on other applications. Some users report losing the entire draft of the email or the progress of the YouTube video. The camera seems to be the most common culprit. Apple has not confirmed the issue and may later offer a fix with iOS 13.3.
