Whenever I find my iOS device running a bit slow, I make sure to kill or force quit all the apps opened in the background. This little trick also works, more often than not, in fixing an unresponsive app. On the earlier iPhones, you have to double press the Home button to bring up app cards and swipe up on the specific ones to close them on iOS devices.
But with Home button finally bidding adieu on iPhone X, many folks are wondering how they will be able to close apps. Thanks to a quick gesture, force quitting apps on iPhone X is not a big deal. Let me show you how it works!
How to Force Close Apps on iPhone X
Step #1. Simply swipe up from the gesture bar and hold.
Step #2. When you enter app switcher mode, simply touch and hold the app card you want to force close.
Step #3. Now, a red close button will appear; tap on it to force quit the app on your iPhone X.
Alternateively, once you hold the app card and red button appears, you can Swipe up to Kill the app.
To force quit apps on your other iOS devices including iPhone 8/8 Plus, you need to double-click the Home button and then swipe up the app card you wish to close.
Swipe gestures have made multitasking pleasing on the iPhone X. However, it’s going to take some time before users will get used to it. We have rounded up the most important iPhone X swipe gestures, which allow you to carry out commonly-used actions with ease. I would recommend you to take a look at them to find out how cool they are.
