We have established that mindlessly force quitting all apps multiple times a day doesn’t improve iPhone’s performance or the battery life. Apple clearly wants users to stop doing this. Which is why they’ve changed the force quit app gesture in iPhone X.
Like the one for force quitting an app. To make sure that you don’t accidentally end up quitting apps when you’re trying to go to the Home screen, Apple had to add this extra tap and hold step.
There are times when you really need to kill or force to exit an iPhone application. When it gets stuck or is behaving badly.
The steps to Kill or Force Quit Apps on iPhone X
To Kill or Force Quit Apps on iPhone X, please follow the 3 steps below:
Step 1: Swipe Up and Hold
You need to get to the App Switcher. To do that on the iPhone X:
– You swipe up from the Home indicator and stop when you see the animation.
– Then, lift your finger and you’ll see all the apps in the horizontal list.
Step 2: Tap and Hold
Swiping up on the cards will do nothing. Instead, tap and hold on one of the cards and you will see red minus buttons in the top-left corner of each app card.
Step 3: Now, Swipe Up
– You can swipe up on any app to quit them.
– To exit the force quitting mode, tap on the empty area in the bottom.
