Like much the internet, we're getting flooded with messages from people who're finding themselves repeatedly logged out of Mailbox, Snapchat (we don't judge!), and other apps following the iOS 7 update. Not only can that be tedious, but in some cases the apps demand the entire setup process be repeated, which can be a showstopper. A bug in Apple's new background update API could be the culprit, according to Ellis Hamburger at The Verge:
You can turn off background refresh in Settings > General > Background App Refresh, and on a app-by-app basis. That could help mitigate feature loss for apps that aren't experiencing the issue.
In the meantime, if that really is the cause, lets hope iOS 7.0.2 or iOS 7.1 fixes this and fast! Apple could get some anger over this, developers could lose customers.
