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?

Wow, I totally missed that...

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

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.
