iPad 6th Gen Issues

I’ve been getting memory issues on my 6th gen when I’m in a busy airspace basically keeping me away from any ATC controlled airspace’s. A hand full of times my device has crashed. I always clear the RAM before every flight and I only use IF Assistant during my flight. Every other app is always closed. Graphics are all at the best setting BUT I have always ran this and never had any issues. Any idea what can cause that to change?

Do you play with the frame limiter on or off?

I have the same device and have been noticing some slight performance issues. One example is when I am in cockpit view, my frame rate drops a lot. But if I switch to HUD/ no cockpit, the frame rate is back to normal.

Limit frame rate is NOT checked.

It’s sucks. It’s basically a new device in terms of being outdated so it’s a real bummer

Yeah I’m thinking it might be an issue with the app because I don’t think a non-interactive cockpit could bring down my framerate that much.

I find it hard to believe that a device that was JUST updated by Apple (even though the 7th gen doesn’t even get a processor improvement), cannot run this game.

Enabling it should somewhat help

Well do you run settings and the highest for the whole flight or no?

Yes, just like I always have and never had issues.

Well, maybe try turning your settings down once you reach cruise and once you start descent🙂

Right, I’m curious to know why the change to what it is now. I have plenty of memory available and the processor is the same one that is sold on the new 7th gen.

Check you have followed these general tips and instructions on app crashes including lag:

What do I do if I experience app crashes or lag?

General tips regardless of device:

  • Turn Limit Frame Rate ON (box should be ticked) if you notice that your device tends to heat up or if you are experiencing lag. A device that heats up too much is more likely to suffer performance degradation which could lead to lag and app crashes.
  • Infinite Flight doesn’t take up a specific amount of storage, it can change depending on the area you’re flying in etc. We therefore recommend that you always have at least 1GB of storage available on your device.
  • Before longer flights, it is advised to reboot your device and close any apps running in the background to enhance your experience.
  • It is possible to fly and charge the device at the same time. The key to this is to use less power than being charged. One way to accomplish this is lower your screen brightness and ensure Infinite Flight’s low power mode is enabled.
  • Disable active ad or message blocking apps
  • Don’t modify, “Root”, or “Jailbreak” your device
  • Use a strong WiFi network within a relatively close proximity to your device
  • Lower Infinite Flight graphics and performance settings
    1. Lower the Rendering Resolution setting.
    2. Disable Anti-Aliasing.
    3. Lower the Rendering Quality setting.
    4. Lower the Texture Quality setting.

At any point if you’re experiencing decreased performance, “Limit frame rate” should always be ticked. This setting can have a great negative impact on performance unless your device is considered high performance.

General iOS tips:

  • One great thing to do before launching Infinite Flight, is to perform a soft restart of the device. This is a quick and reliable way of making sure your device is operating at peak efficiency. This is done by holding down the power/lock button until you see “Slide to power off”. Then hold down the home button until you’re returned to the home screen. For iOS devices without a Home button, a restart is recommended as the soft restart feature does not exist on those.
  • Make sure you don’t have “Low power mode” on your iPhone. If you have, the battery icon in the top right corner is yellow. This can be deactivated from Settings -> Battery, or from “Control Center” depending on how you have it set up. Having “Low power mode” enabled while using Infinite Flight could result in a performance degradation.
    Note : This is not the same as “Low power mode” in Infinite Flight. This is a device function.

General Android tips:

  • Make sure you have Android Battery Saver disabled. Having this enabled can cause a lot of degradation in terms of both storage, performance and network.
  • Newer Android devices may work fine with Anti-Aliasing on. Turning this off can help performance for older/less powerful Android models.
  • Some devices (ie Samsung) may have a Game Tuner app to enhance the performance of games. While some users have not seen an issue there is a number who have. It is best to run IF by itself instead of through a game tuner.

If none of the suggestions above helps:

As a final resort, reset the device to factory settings. Be sure to back up all important data on your device first.

Also, if I remember correctly Chris_S said before in a topic I can’t remember that the app kicks you out if the device can’t handle the constraints of the game. See how this statement can relate to the problem you’re currently having.
