How to Close Apps on iPhone 13 – If your apps or phone are behaving strangely, you may be able to solve the problem by closing the offending app. In this article, you’ll learn how to see what apps are running and how to close apps on the iPhone 13.
How to Close Apps Without a Home Button?
If you upgraded from an iPhone with a Home button to the iPhone 13, you may be wondering how you can see what apps are running or close apps on your iPhone 13 without a Home button. Fortunately, Apple has replaced the Home button with a set of gestures in iOS. (You have options even if your Home button is broken.)
To see what apps are running on iPhone models with a Home button (iPhone 8 and earlier), double-click the Home button. Simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen on the iPhone 13 (and all iPhones without a Home button). Swipe about 10% of the way up the screen, and you’ll see a list of all the apps that are currently open. Simply swipe from side to side to see them.
Is It True That Unclosed Apps Use More Battery?
Many people believe that closing apps saves memory or battery life. That is not correct. Only the app you’re currently using consumes significant memory (unless it’s an app that can run in the background, such as the Music app).
So, even if you have 100 apps open at the same time, only the one you’re currently using consumes a lot of memory. It makes no difference if you close the other apps. When it comes to battery life, closing apps too frequently can reduce it.
How to Close Apps on iPhone 13?
You can close or quit any app that is currently running on your iPhone. As previously stated, you should only do this if an app is acting strangely, but in that case, here are the steps:
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen from any screen or app. You only have to swipe up 10% of the way up the screen.
- Your current app will shrink slightly and move backwards. You’ll also be able to see what other apps are currently running.
- Swipe from left to right to find the app you want to close.
- Swipe the app you want to close off the top of the screen, then release it (sort of flick it away you would a bug on the screen).
- The app has now been closed, but you can reopen it if you wish.
That’s the information on How to Close Apps on iPhone 13. To be honest, there is no way to close every app on your iPhone with a single action. Even if you restart your phone, all of your apps will relaunch when it boots up.
Your best bet is to close up to three apps at the same time. To do so, repeat the first three steps from the previous section. Step three involves tapping up to three apps with up to three fingers and then swiping them off the top of the screen.
