Hello MIUIers,

00-45-43-134108vcye2cybn92nf9w2.png.thumb.jpg


We know that Android is designed to pack its RAM with apps in order to provide the fluid experience, it's also true that in practice not every app will behave ideally while in the background and might waste the available resources in your system. Unlike the Stock Android, MIUI comes with a pre-installed solution to deal with these rogue apps. As a matter of fact, MIUI has this feature from quite a time now which many new users fail to understand and end up downloading third party tools.

In control hierarchy, MIUI puts the user at the top, it strictly manages which app can and which app can't run on startup, also it manages apps against their background activities in RAM. Let's check how you can better manage your apps for being in background.

1. Autostart

If you just installed some apps and they aren't providing you real time notifications or they stop functioning after some initial minutes of locking the phone, then don't worry as this is a customizable and well-thought behavior to fill the RAM only with the apps a user wants to, unlike stock Android. All you have to do is enable the autostart entry for the app in security app.

With Autostart,
App will start with the system. App will not be closed upon cleaning RAM. App will be able to run its background services if it has any.

Although a word of advice, enable it only for the apps which actually needs to be in the background as this will cost you resources like memory, CPU & battery power.

Steps
Open security app > permissions > autostart
Enable Autostart for desired apps.

2. Lock in Recent

Not every app requires to start with the system and be in the background (active or cached), this is where locking apps in recent come handy if you want to keep some of them locked temporarily. Locked apps in recent will not get closed while cleaning RAM or when the system requires extra RAM to run memory intensive apps/games.

videotogif_2017.07.02_01.47.20.gif


Steps

Press physical menu button to open the list of recent apps Pull the app icon downwards to lock the app in recent

For unlocking, Swipe the locked app icon down again and press unlock icon.

3. Manage Apps Behavior While Battery Saver is On

If you are using MIUI battery saver then you must have noticed some of the apps misbehaving. This is because turning on battery saver will put all the apps on by default rule which is ‘recommended settings of MIUI battery saver’ and some apps might need the exception for all the good reasons. All we have to do is put those specific apps on ‘no restrictions’ rule

videotogif_2017.07.02_01.45.53.gif


Steps

Go to settings > battery > manage apps’ battery usage Under choose apps, find the app and select ‘no restrictions’ rule for it

Did you use any of these measures Or do you have something of your own?
