    So if I load Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News - CNN.com on my Macbook and then come back 50 years later, the page will still be dated today? Web pages reload as the webmaster updates it. It's just a fact of life. It happens on OS X, Windows 10, Mint, Ubuntu, Android... I know, I've used all these operating systems and have noticed web pages reload.

    But I guess I can upgrade to 64 gigs of RAM and never have a webpage reload, right?
    Your missing the point of what jdhooghe stated. Yes all websites refresh to keep them current no matter what platform you are using but after a extended period of time. If your on your desk top and browsing the internet and click on your calendar to look at something then click right back to the internet it doesn't refresh like on the iphone.

    Here is an example of what he is talking about as it just happened to me a short time ago. Im browsing Safari when a text message comes in I leave Safari, open my messages app and respond, the tap on Safari and it has to reload the page I was just on 40 seconds prior. That is caused by low ram. The phone is conserving ram space thus forcing apps to reload themselves even after a short period of time.

    Now to be fair I have had more phones than I can count as I go though about a dozen or so a year to try everything out. I have yet to see a phone that does not do this. Doesn't mean there isn't one just that I have not used one.

    Okay, just to humor you people and to see for myself... I have 12 tabs open in Safari on an iPhone 6 Plus with a meager 1 gig of RAM. I'm switching from tab to tab to tab for the last 15 minutes or so. Not one page has reloaded when I switched tabs.

    I've never, ever, seen this on any Apple platform. Not even on my old Performa 6115CD. Not on my G3 Wallstreet Powerbook, nothing. And not even on my iPhone 6 Plus, and I tried it again with even more tabs open. Still working fine.

    It's not the amount of tabs open. This happens to me while single tab browsing and switching back and fourth between 2-3 apps including safari. It is caused by a lack of ram, which forces the page to reload. Apps do it as well, not just safari. It just depends on what apps your currently using.
