Recently some iPhone apps which are already installed are not available when clicked.
I noticed recently some apps I don’t use often need to be reloaded. I assume this is some kind of memory reallocation innovation to make room for all of my favorite podcasts.
It happens like this, I click on an icon, and a clock-like loading animation covers the icon and it’s unavailable until it’s “reloaded”. Ok. But this necessitates WiFi, and near impossible to reload while on the train, for example.
Today I was not able to use my gmail app, and more importantly Transit app were unavailable when I needed them. I absolutely can’t have Transit app ever unavailable or requiring download as I rely it to find alternate routes home during my NYC commute to work and home.
Is there a way to prevent certain critical third-party apps from unloading?
