How To Close Apps On iOS 7

Updated October 9, 2013

I recently downloaded and installed iOS 7, how do I close apps on iOS 7


Apple has changed the way that apps are closed in the “app drawer” on iOS 7.  In the older version of iOS, you would have to double tap the home button, press down on one of the icons until they started wiggling, and then hit the “X” on each icon.

Now when you double tap the home button, it will show the apps that are open and the cards that are associated with each one.  For the apps that you want to close, you will need to swipe the card associated with that app in an “up” motion.
