    Is there a way I can stop apps from refreshing? Like on facebook if I have a profile open and I leave the app for a few mins it refreshes or if I'm in the photo app the picture I have selected when I leave the app a few mins later the app refreshes and I need to find the photo again. Any ways to fix that? I have iPhone 7 128gb iOS 10.2

    Try disabling "Background App Refresh" for the aforementioned app in the device's Settings to see if that helps.

    I don't think Background App Refresh has anything to do with what you refer to. That's just Facebook. It happens on Facebook online in Safari as well. It can be irritating for sure. But I don't think there's any way to stop it.

    Lots of those social networking apps are notorious for working that way. I only use Instagram and that happens a lot with or without background refresh.

    It's like reading a tweet in Twitter, then suddenly it vanishes.

    Lots of apps do this, I'm not sure if it's anything to do with background app refresh because often when you go back to the app the old screen will appear before it reloads. Whatever it is it's annoying.
