Whenever I find my iOS device running a bit slow, I make sure to force close all the apps opened in the background. This little trick also works, more often than not, in fixing an unresponsive app. Generally, 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 long press upwards from the bottom handle.
Step #2. Next, your device will enter Quit Apps mode.
Step #3. Now, just swipe up on the app card in question to close.
Alternately, you can long-press on the app cards. Now, red minus buttons will appear. Tap on the minus button next to the app you want to close.
As demonstrated by Apple at the iPhone X event, users will have to use gestures to navigate through the device or carry out important functionalities. Though life without the iconic Home button may slightly be inconvenient at least in the beginning, iPhone users may soon find quick gestures more convenient.
