MacDailyNews Take: If you’re waiting for the random issues to be cleared up before updating your iOS devices, the x.1 releases are generally the way to go! Not much longer now.


    1. Check “Background App Refresh”. It has been reported that the upgrade resets all of those settings and turns it on for every App on your phone.
      – – That will hammer your battery.

      I don’t need Social media apps and 90% of the other apps checking the Internet every 30 seconds for new posts and updates.
      Way to go Apple. Overriding the user’s preference settings./s
