    Default Why won't 3rd-party apps sync while closed? Background app refreshed is enabled?

    So I just switch over from Android after not using an iPhone for years. I'm noticing that cloud enabled apps like google+ photo backup, MS one drive and Google music don't sync with cloud while closed.

    For example i have google+ setup to backup my photos and videos but it only does it when the app is open. If I close it and go back it's right where I left it.

    I already went to settings and I checked background data refresh and it's enabled for all apps.

    I don't believe third-party applications are allowed to update when they are closed.
