Guide on How to Close Apps on iPhone X in iOS 12.

Apple iPhone X is regarded as the best innovation of the year in smartphones and why not because it made a room to fit large screen size with top bezel removed and replaced with a top notch.

Perhaps Apple paid attention to user feedback which is why it has made it easier to close apps on the iPhone X in iOS 12.

Should You Really Close Apps on your iPhone?

This is a debate has been going on for years and it will continue to happen. Apple says that you should not close apps on your iPhone X since they will end up taking more resources when you launch them again.

On the other hand, I have noticed that removing apps that I sparingly use from the App Switcher has helped improve the multitasking performance on my iPad. But then again, that’s just my experience.

Do you regularly close apps on your iPhone? If yes, have you noticed any negative or positive impact from it?
