Force Close Applications (iOS)

How do I force close applications?

For some issues, it is a good idea to close all applications running in the background. This will free up your device's resources.

  1. Double click the Home button (the button on the front of your device) and all multitasking apps will appear.
  2. Swipe up on each app to remove it from running in the background.
  3. Click the Home button again to go back to the normal screen.
  4. Restart your device and open the game.

How do I force close applications on an iPhone X?

The iPhone X has some different steps you'll need to take:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to return to your Home screen.
  2. Swipe up again and hold your finger near the middle of the screen until all of your open apps appear.
  3. Hold your finger in the middle of the screen a little longer to bring up a minus sign in the upper-left corner of the open apps.
  4. Press the minus sign to close an app. You can also swipe up at this point to close an app.
