8 Close Your Apps with Just a Swipe
Hey remember when Apple let you close apps by just swiping up on them in the app switcher? Then remember how Apple ruined that with iPhone X and made you hold down on the app and tap a close button (like the old days)? Well now it’s back to swiping.
[Technically there isn’t a reason to be “force closing” apps unless they’re not responding or not functioning correctly. This is because iOS handles memory and power in the background, so closing them can actually cause apps to load back up slower and use more battery when you open them back up. But, people like to close them anyway.]
Now that Apple’s brought it back, just swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause—or double-click the home button—to bring up the app switcher. Then just swipe up on any apps you want to force close.
