    Hi there!

    I just discovered the part of the iPhone manual that describes force-quitting an app: hold the standby button until the slider is displayed, then hold the home button until the app quits.
    I wasn't aware of this, were you? Until now, I just rebooted the phone...

    Is this a new thing to iOS 6?

    New to iPhone OS 3. Before that, you just held down the home button, but 3 changed that to voice control.

    Wow, I totally missed that...

    Seems that RTFM IS a good idea after all, even for intiutive products like iOS devices ;-)

    It was OS 4 when multi-tasking was implemented.

    Force-quitting was around before 3rd-party multitasking. We're not talking about force-quitting background apps from the switcher. Stock apps from Apple could always multitask, and would often go bad.

    See this article by Rene from 2009.

    This is also used to "Calibrate the home button"
