    What do you mean ghost apps?

    Apps starting in the background by themselves? If that's happening, maybe it's auto updating or refreshing content, or getting location, or something like that?

    What I meant was if you close any app, it stills run in the background, like the old Lumia's with Windows 8 when you had to press the back button multiple times to close everything thats running.

    Yes tried that closing apps manually, but still some recent apps continue to run in background and have to close them using the old Windows 8 trick of pressing the back button multiple times until everything closes. I think I got this problem after the .29 update!

    Apps in the background don't run anyway, they're just held in memory. They shouldn't cause any issues. Maybe you should submit feedback in the app about it.

    last night i was using my wifes 1520, this happened. i understand now.

    they dont appear when you hold the back key. but pressing it continually will bring them to the foreground. then you can hold the back key and end them - but one at a time only.

    its probably a bug, and i suggest you add feedback, which i will do over the christmas break

    Anyone getting that new firmware update MICROSOFTMDG yet? I'm on .36 Insider and I haven't yet received it. As far as I can see, I think BECAUSE I'm on .36 Insider, I'm not getting it, whereas those who are non-insiders are. I did read in comments on the article on windowscentral some people in Australia both on Optus and outright phones are getting this update already... :(

    my phone on .36 didnt get the update. my mates optus 950XL on .29 DID get it.

    im guessing .36 updates are excluded for some reason.

    The multitasking screen only show like 8 apps, but the system can store more apps on the background. Don't worry about it, the bg apps are not using cpu at all.

    It's not going out to Insiders for some reason, so if you are an Insider you won't get it.

    only insiders can get .36 at this stage. so yes, this is correct.

    unenrolling wont help either, tried that last night.

    That's not true. .36 went out to all 950 and 950 Xls.
