    To close running apps:

    1. Double tap the home button.
    2. Grab the card that represents the app.
    3. Slide/flick it upwards.

    Note: you can now close the "active" app, as well as others in the list.

    You can also turn off background tasks

    Settings > General > Background App Refresh > [OFF]

    I have had mine left on purposely since last Sat when I updated to 7. With this question I just now turned mine off and will check my battery difference. Blink and Don do you have your background apps turned on or off now?
