How to completely close the Apps on an iPhone

Multitasking on the iPhone is very useful, but you may not realize that it also leaves your other apps open in the background. This is good in certain cases, such as when you're waiting for a video to load and want to check your email. However, it can also drain your battery to have all of those open applications running in the background. To save battery power, you have to completely close these apps through the multitasking bar.


  • Double-press the "Home" button on your iPhone in one fluid motion to view recently used apps. You can do this while using an application or directly on the home screen
  • Press and hold any app icon until it displays a red "-" symbol.
  • Press the red "-" symbol in the left corner of the app's icon to fully close it.
  • Swipe to the left or right to view other open apps, and repeat Steps 2 and 3.
