Whenever I find any app freezing on iPhone or iPad, the first solution that I try to fix the problem is “Force Quit” the problematic app. Simply double click the Home button and swipe up on the app card to quit the app. However, this process has slightly been tweaked in iOS 11 especially on iPad. So, how do you force quit an app on iPad Pro in iOS 11?
Now, you have to first press and hold on the app in the app switching interface before tapping on the remove button to get rid of it. You can also use gesture to quit any app. If you are wondering why force quitting an app is not working like before on your iPad running iOS 11, check out these quick steps to know how it works now.
