If you’re an iPhone 7 user, you may be wondering how to close apps on your device. Closing apps is an important part of preserving battery life and clearing out memory-intensive applications that could be slowing down your device. Thankfully, closing apps on the iPhone 7 is relatvely easy and straightforward.

When you’re ready to close out of an app, double tap the home button to bring up the App Switcher. This will show all of the open apps on your device in a row of screenshots overlapping each other. To close out of one app at a time, simply swipe up on its screenshot in the App Switcher. You can also use tree fingers to swipe up to close up to three apps at once.

It’s important to note that just closing out of an app does not necessarily mean that it no longer has access to background app refresh. To check which apps have access to background refresh, go into Settings > General > Background App Refresh and review the list of applications that are set to “on” for background refresh. If any app is using more battery life than necessary or slowing down your phone, you can switch it off and save some power and resources.

If you find yourself with too many open apps that need closing, don’t worry! There isn’t a way to close all of them at once but with some patience and swiping you can quickly get through them one by one or in groups of three if you prefer.

The iPhone 7 offers a lot of great features but knowing how to properly manage the applications running on it is essential for making sure it runs smoothly and efficiently. By learning how to easily close out open apps on your device, you can conserve battery life as well as keep your phone running like new!
