Got your hands on your brand new iPhone 11 series smartphone? Have you started exploring the changes as compared to your previous iPhone? If not, you must start looking into it now! Right from changing the font size to clearing the RAM, a few things have changed in the latest iPhone model. And the way you close the apps or force quit the apps has got a tweak as well.
If you’re wondering how to close apps on your iPhone 11 Pro Max, 11 Pro or on your iPhone 11, we’ve got it covered! Follow the simple steps given in this tutorial so that you don’t mess up landing on the home screen instead of closing the app. There’s a small change in the gesture which you need to take care of while you close the apps on your new iPhone.
How to Close Apps on iPhone 11 Pro Max, 11 Pro, and iPhone 11
Just in case, if you’ve already used iPhone X earlier, the process is similar to close the apps. But, if you are used to the Home Button to quit the recently used apps, let me remind you that there’s no home button on the latest iPhone 11. It’s all about gestures! So let’s have a look at the detailed guide on how to force an app to close on your iPhone 11.
Step #1. Head over to the App Switcher by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.
Step #2. When your finger reaches the center of the screen, give a pause for a second and wait till the app cards pop up! If you don’t pause, it will eventually land you on the home screen. So the pause is important in this overall procedure.
Step #3. Now scroll horizontally to find the app you want to close. Swipe up on the app preview to close it.
That’s it! It will close the app which you swiped up from the recent apps popup.
Close Multiple Apps at Once on iPhone 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max
While Android users enjoy closing all apps at once, the iPhone doesn’t have that feature yet. But with the latest gestures introduced with the launch of iPhone X last year, you can easily close 3 apps at once. Here’s how you can do it.
Step #1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to launch App Switcher.
Step #2. Pause your finger at the center of the screen until you see the recent apps.
Step #3. Place your 3 fingers on 3 different apps and swipe up to close 3 apps at a glance! You can even use 2 fingers if you want to close a couple of apps.
You cannot close all apps at once but at least, you can close 3 apps in a blink of an eye on your latest iPhone.
Closing apps or force quitting apps is a common way to improve the battery life of your iPhone. Of course, it saves you a certain amount of RAM as well when the app isn’t running in the background. So, overall, there are many advantages to close the apps that aren’t in use on your iPhone 11.
