    What do you mean your computer won't let you? How does that affect you closing apps on your phone?

    So at this question people that don't know the answer responded: "it's better not to". It's actually better to close the apps in the app switcher because they already work in the background even when closed. So there are 2 actual answers:
    1. You can't, on any iOS.
    2. You can if you jailbreak your device and install an app like Swipe Home. Then you can swipe the home screen like when closing an app and it will kill apps.
    Jailbreak now works on iOS 10.1-10.2 (do not upgrade to 10.2.1 if you want this), only on 64-bit devices (iPhone 5S or later).

    Just upgraded my iPad Pro to 10.2.1 last night and I'm sorry to say that there still isn't a "close all background apps at once" feature. I have submitted it as a feature request but my batting average with requests send to Apple is still a steady 0.

    Of course you can. Long press power, swipe to power off. Power the phone back on.

    All apps running at the time you powered off were closed.

    You don't need this in iOS. I barely close all my apps. IOS does a good job of managing background apps.
