Most of us including myself were always under the impression, by quitting apps in Multi-tasking We save a lot on battery as these apps work in background, and consume lot of battery. But, I think now it’s turning out to be a myth.
As clarified by 9to5mac in the recent article, Apple SVP has clarified this with a short statement ” No and No “, when a reader asked him a direct question ” Do you quit multi tasking frequently and is it necessary to save battery ? “.
Apps that do affect battery life are only things that actually do perform background operations, things like GPS navigation, background music playback and similar. However, you only really have these running when you are using them.
Surprising for me, As i been using iPhone from day one. The fact is all the applications in background are not active ” Apps in background are in standby mode, and ready for launch the moment you press home button twice.”
Generally, there’s no need to force an app to close unless it’s unresponsive. When you press the Home button two times quickly, the recently used apps that appear aren’t open. They’re in an efficient standby mode to help you navigate and multitask.
Apple has already clarified, Closing the app is required when the app becomes un-responsive. How to force close an App :
