One commenter stated that they put YouTube in the background for just a minute to respond to the text. By the time they returned to YouTube – the iPhone 11 Pro – it had already reloaded and lost the video they were watching. Other people have had similar experiences and complained that YouTube continues to refresh each time it pauses what it watches. Similarly, Nick Herr of PixelEnvy stated that his Safari messages and applications continue to refresh each time he brings them to the fore. "Safari can't even hold a single tab open in the background, every application starts from scratch, and using iOS feels like it's regressed to multitasking days," he writes.
Numerous similar complaints have been posted on the Apple Support Forum, Reddit, Twitter and other avenues. Dealing with an error that affects your ability to multitask on the phone can be incredibly frustrating, especially if you have one of Apple's most expensive devices. We have contacted the technology giant for a statement and will update you when we hear from you.
