How do I close apps in iOS 7?


The old method of double clicking the button on the front of the phone, holding until the icons wiggle and clicking the x doesn't work anymore.

Just double tap the home button, tap on the app you want to close and slide it up then let go. That should close it for you.

It’s pretty similar to Android now.

1. Double tap the home button. This should bring up app previews.

2. Swipe from side to side until you find the app that you want to close.

3. Hold down the app that you want to close and swipe it up towards the top of the screen. The app is closed.
