Recently on older iPhone models, iPhone 11 Pro , iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11, you may not know how to close applications running on your phone. This guide will tell you how to do it.
When moving from an iPhone 8, iPhone 7 or earlier iPhone model to an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro, the home button is trained to close applications.
iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, and iPhone 11 (such as Apple’s iPhone 12 series, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone X) don’t have a home button, so you must use on-screen gestures to close apps.
The first few days can feel a bit awkward, but it doesn’t take long before you’re fully accustomed to the new process.
Here’s how to close apps on iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11.
How to Close Apps on iPhone 11 Pro
To close an app on iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, or iPhone 11, you need to invoke the app switch function on your phone. Here’s how.
- While on the home screen or in apps, pull up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone 11 and wait for a while, then release when the app switcher and app cards appear.
- You can swipe left and right in the app switcher to scroll through the applications open on iPhone 11.
- To close an application, you must swipe up on the app card.
Closing applications may not improve battery life on iPhone 11, but it may improve iPhone 11’s performance when using iOS’s background refresh feature.
When background refresh is enabled, apps run in the background and can negatively affect the performance of your iPhone 11 if not properly managed.
