The newest upgrade of the mobile OS of Google, Android is named Android 5.0 Lollipop and it is already rolling-out to devices.

Users of different devices running on the platform report that the bug is causing closing of open apps and often forces reloading of the home screens. One of the issues with the bug is the using of 1.2GB of RAM which is almost three times more than the amount that should be used normally – 500MB. The Android Issue Tracker reveals that there lots of models affected by the problem, including Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013).

Hopefully the bug is found by Google and it will manage to take care of it and provide an update with the needed fix sooner than later. Google has not confirmed this information yet. Currently there is no available schedule for the upcoming updates, so we are yet to find out when the update with the fix is coming. In the best case scenario the company will manage to release a minor update with the fix for this issue. There is a chance that Google will decide to wait and include the needed fix in the next planned update. We will wait and see.
