    This is either a serious bug, or the Facebook app has gone rogue. I've had "Background App Refresh" turned off—for all apps—since the very beginning. I simply have no need for any of my apps' features to be running and updated round-the-clock. Today, under Battery Usage, I saw the words "Background Activity" by the Facebook app. I've never seen this before under any app, as is to be expected, given the fact that I don't enable this feature.

    Anyone experiencing a similar anomaly?

    I've included the relevant screenshots.

    On an iPhone, you tap the image to "expand". :D

    Yeah, and either way, I think it goes without saying at this point. ;)

    And yes, The FB app has always been rogue IMO. :)

    Flashlight 24%???
    A quote from this article:
    "If you turn off Background App Refresh, some background activity might still occur."

    Thank you for finding that! I was unaware of that, since I'd never experienced it in my battery usage summary. Hopefully this doesn't become an everyday thing for the Facebook app.

    I was so close to 0% that I wanted the battery to die before plugging the iPhone in to charge. So I turned on the flashlight to speed up the process. It stayed on longer than I would've thought, before the battery finally died :)

    The voice in the back of my head tells me, "What if someday, someone comes along who doesn't know how to expand the thumbnails?" So I feel compelled to state what is, for us regulars, the obvious. Chalk it up to the OCD, I guess...:D

    If they are unable to figure that out, I doubt they would be able to help you with your questions. ;)

    Facebook is the evil twin of Jack Bauer on iOS.

    This could be an iOS 8 bug, or an error in the way this particular page is set up…

    Normally, when you're veiwing the mobile version of a site, if you reverse-pinch to zoom out past the actual (100%) size, the site snaps back to actual size, filling the screen, when you remove your fingers from the screen.

    This is not the case for this specific page on the Wiktionary mobile site:

    http://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/bruin

    It remains zoomed out after you remove your fingers from the screen, filling only a portion of it, like so:

    Interestingly, I tried the same thing with a different word on the Wiktionary site, and the image snapped back correctly, as expected.

    I've noticed that on sites for a long time. Some snap back when released, some stay zoomed until you unzoom it, and some sites won't zoom at all using reverse pinch. You have to do the 3 finger tap, which now gives you a customizable magnifying glass. I've been using it a good bit lately. It's allergy season and my eyes are affected. That built in mag glass really helps.

    I don't see the option for desktop view in Safari. I noticed it on my Wife's iPhone 5c. But I've never seen it on my 5.

    Please elaborate and maybe post comparison screenshots. I'm not sure if you are just referring to certain sites.

    This?

    Yes. I don't see that in my Safari. Never have.
    Update: I figured it out. I remembered the pull down action. :)

    This is not a bug per se, but it is probably not the optimum behavior for the caps lock function on iOS.

    Let's say I want to write out a series of capital letters separated by commas. Granted, this isn't something that the average person would need to do daily, but it certainly isn't an altogether unreasonable task to want to perform on iOS.

    Example:

    I want to tell my friend that I have horrible letters right now on Words With Friends. I want to tell him, "Hey, Mike, I have horrible letters on WWF right now! Q, K, F, L, L, U, W."

    I double-tap on the Shift key to engage Caps Lock. I type a Q. Then I type a comma. Then I try to type a K. Surprise, surprise, typing the comma disengaged Caps Lock and the k came out lower case. Bummer. Caps Lock should remain engaged.

    The vanishing keyboard is still an issue for users of 3rd party keyboards. iOS 8.3 did not fix this. Swiping the messages app out of the multitasking tray brings it back. Fortunately, it doesn't happen often.
