How do I see what apps are running on my iPhone?

nrichmond

I suspect part of the reason my phone's battery is running out so quickly is that I've got a lot of apps running in the background. How do I see what's running and how do I turn them off?

I am not an expert, but if it was me the first thing I would try is going in to my settings, then applications, then go to your running services or even better go to your Battery Use; there it will show you which applications are using what percentage of your battery.  From there you will be prompted to turn off what you are not using or what is not needed to run constantly.  I know you will find your problem.  Good luck and have a m

Double tap the Home button, and you'll see the multitasking bar the bottom. Scroll through it to see which apps are running. Tap the X to close the apps you don't want running.
