MIUI 7 bug fix: Background apps and notifications

Why aren’t apps running in background, or showing notifications, even after enabling auto start permission and allowed to run in background?

Solution 1:

Settings -> Additional Settings  -> Battery  -> Manage app battery usage, now turn off the following options:

  • Manage app battery usage
  • Restrict apps when battery is low

Solution 2:

  • Select “Choose apps to restrict” and unselect/untick the apps from the list
  • Reboot the device and check.

Solution 3:

Security App  -> Data Usage  -> Data Usage Stats, select the apps and check whether “Background data” is allowed or not.
