Quit or Kill Multiple Apps At Once on your iPhone or iPad

Multitasking is one of the useful features a smartphone provides, and most importantly, there are times when we open apps and leave them in the background which might waste battery especially when you’re not using them.

One really useful feature that iOS 7 has provided is to allow you to close up to three apps at once. Well, depending on how big your screen is, closing apps will not become much of a bore anymore!

Quitting or Kill Multiple Apps at Once

Using the simple instructions below, follow along and learn how you can close multiple apps at once!

  1. Double click the home button to bring up the multitask switcher.
  2. Swipe left (or right) and choose which three apps you want to close.
  3. Using two or three fingers — each finger on one app — swipe up.
  4. The selected apps are now closed.

Although, before you get all excited, there are some limitations you might not know. Here’s actually what’s missing:

  • The apps cannot be reorganized in the multitask switcher. This prevents you from quitting the right apps at once.
  • There isn’t a feature where you can quit all apps at once. Apple did not implement this feature, because people can quit all apps when you didn’t want to.

As we all might know, these features might not be added onto iOS (even in the future) just because it can cause confusion to non-techie users. Here’s a video to help you though the process!
