IPhone 12 is the latest and greatest smartphone from Apple. It has a number of exciting features, including an A14 Bionic chip, and a powerful 6.1. inch OLED display, 5G connectivity, and more. With such impressive specs, it’s no wonder that many people are excited about the iPhone 12.

However, if you’re one of those who have already purchased the new iPhone 12, you may be wondering how to close Waze on your device. Waze is an app that helps you find your way around town with real-time traffic updates and navigation services. While it can be quite handy to have installed on your phone, it can also be a drain on your battery and mobile data if left running in the background when you’re not using it.

Fortunately, closing Waze on your iPhone 12 is quite easy. All you need to do is open up the app and tap on the ETA bar at the bottom of your screen. Once this is done, select “Stop” from the menu that appears. This will turn off all navigation services provided by Waze and close the app for good.

In addition to closing Waze manually like this every time you’re finished using it, there are also a few other ways to turn off Waze navigation without having to open up the app each time. For instance, you can set your device’s location services settings so that they only allow apps like Waze to access location information when you actively choose to use them (i.e., when opening them). This will prevent any unnecessary battery drain or data usage while keeping your device secure at all times.

Overall, closing Waze on an iPhone 12 is super easy and takes only a few seconds of your time each time you want to make sure that it’s not running in the background unnecessarily draining resources like battery life or mobile data while not being actively used by yourself or anyone else in your family or team who might also own an iPhone 12 with Waze installed on it as well!
