    It’s not a good idea to close Apps unless they are causing problems. They need system resources to restart again.

    I usually don't. There are times when I will close an App that I rarely use, but that's the only time. This is "learned behavior", but I have discovered that it's awfully nice to scroll through Apps via the App Switcher to find something I was looking at, like a grocery list, a recipe, or something on Amazon. I have an Amazon addiction, don't ya know?

    I am one who closes out my apps typically before I go to bed, and occasionally beforehand. I’ve been doing it for ions. If I need to re-open it, it only takes a second.

    It’s actually worse on the battery.

    As for my iPhone’s battery life over the years, I can say with all honesty that it has been quite stellar. I’ve never had to replace my battery EVER!

    Therefore, technically speaking, closing apps “could” degrade battery life/performance, but it doesn’t mean it “will”. Closing an app and reopen Inc it could take longer, but how much longer? A millisecond?

    I used to close apps all the time starting with my Blackberry and Android days. When I came over to the iPhone I continued that practice until I did some reading and learned it wasn’t necessarily a recommended practice. I only close one now when there’s an issue with the particular app.

    That said I fully understand those that do and know that one way or the other it likely doesn’t make much of a difference.

    I don’t force quit apps unless they are misbehaving or I want to be sure they are not running in the background (e.g.: Facebook – not that I have it installed, but it would be one).

    I avoid quitting them to avoid corrupting their data in case they are trying to write to an internal database at termination time.

    Apple even says that you should only force-close apps if they are unresponsive. I also do so if I find that it's using too much battery (and that happens very, very rarely).

    I used to close apps too often, now I only do it when I need to refresh due to weird behavior. If I had anything owned by Face….Meta….I would always force close those after using them because of their high battery drain.

    I habitually close all apps, at least once a day, basically for battery saving reasons. Anyway an app that’s not running, should not be doing anything I don’t want it to ! Extra power use on restarting an app ? I do it when plugged in mostly. Switching apps off does not save power ? Well I proved to my own satisfaction that that is not true long ago. Listening to tech companies is like believing your car manufacturers fuel consumption figures ! interesting but unlikely !!

    Indeed, you use up more battery if you are launching an app from a closed state vs a suspended state

    I prefer all my most used apps open and I only close the lot when I am updating the OS and always close Apple Maps and Music after use

    I like to be able to return to the exact place I stopped during a work flow or email PDF presentation and or iMovie project I’m working on

    Well I would ! a lot of people have noticed that Facebook is a major culprit in battery power loss. If you must have it,close it when you have finished with it.

    Tap the list again to show usage time and post both photos. There's not enough information to tell if it is using battery unusually.

    No reason to close Facebook. It's at the top of the list most likely because you used Facebook more than the others during the 24 hour period. There's no reason to worry about battery. Just enjoy your device.

    I force close certain apps when I want them to open at their main/home screen or in cases where they might be exhibiting odd behavior. Back in my legacy BlackBerry days I’d kill everything off when done using it, and Android needed clearing at times.

    I almost never do it. The memory Management should always be able to handle all of it.
