iOS 14 basics: how to quit an app on your iPhone
Even iOS apps occasionally misbehave — they can crash, or freeze, or otherwise stop working. If you’re new to iOS, or just haven’t had this happen before, you may not know how to actually quit an app (as opposed to just swiping it off your screen). Here’s how to quit an app using iOS 14:
- Open the App Switcher by either swiping up from the bottom of the screen and then pausing in the middle, or (if you have a Home button) double pressing the Home button.
- You’ll see an overlapping view of all your open apps. Swipe to the right or left until you find the app you want to quit.
- Swipe up on the app.
