Stop Closing Apps on Your iPhone – How-To Geek

Here are the reasons why you should stop closing apps on your iPhone:

  • It doesn’t save battery life. Contrary to popular belief, closing apps on your iPhone doesn’t actually save battery life. In fact, it can actually use more battery power because your iPhone has to reload the app from scratch when you open it again.
  • It can cause problems with apps. Sometimes, closing apps can cause problems with the apps themselves. For example, if you close an app while it’s in the middle of doing something, it might not be able to save your progress or it might crash.
  • It’s unnecessary. Your iPhone is designed to manage apps in the background, so there’s no need to close them manually. In fact, closing apps can actually make your iPhone run slower.

If you’re concerned about battery life, there are other things you can do to improve it, such as turning off features you don’t use, lowering the brightness, and using a power saving mode.

Here are some tips for managing apps on your iPhone without closing them:

  • Use the App Switcher to switch between apps. The App Switcher is a multitasking view that shows all of the apps that are currently open on your iPhone. You can use the App Switcher to switch between apps without having to close them.
  • Disable Background App Refresh for apps you don’t use. Background App Refresh is a feature that allows apps to update themselves in the background. This can use battery power, so you can disable it for apps you don’t use.
  • Force quit apps that are misbehaving. If an app is misbehaving, you can force quit it by holding down the Home button and the Power button until you see the Apple logo.
