iPhone Users - Don't waste Your Time by Force Quitting The Apps Unnecessarily

We all are tech addicted now and gadgets have become an integral part of our life. While using tech devices we have our own tips and tricks in order to make it more productive. The Same way most of the iPhone users directly kill the app in the background with the intention to save battery and RAM. However, Mac blogger and publisher John Gruber recently mentioned in hi blog that swiping away the apps from background won't help you. Neither I longers the battery life or saves any RAM. As we totally agree with the Grubber, Apple has already made its iPhone infrastructure to deal with the background apps on its own.

But, we believe that you should know exactly why you don't need to force quit the apps and also why to force quitting still needed.

I know both the statement is contradicting each other, but don't worry stay with me until the end of the article you will know.

How and Why You Force Quit the Apps
 

While using your iPhone to switch between the apps you just double click the home button and all the recently used apps come in front. Now you swipe them left or right to choose one and tap the one intended to open. In a case of quitting the app you do the same, but just swipe up and force quit the app. Sometimes apps got stuck or jam so we need force quitting in that scenario too. We do that to save the battery life and clear the RAM space from our mobile.

Gruber says force quitting the apps is just nothing more than a waste of time, but how to let's see.

Does it really help? No
 

Force quitting the app clears the RAM space and saves the battery life is the biggest misconception among the iPhone users. This is no way how the Apple’s operating system works, all the apps in the background stopped consuming any RAM space and battery. Whenever an app goes into the background iPhone operating system freezes it and cut down any RAM consumption and it won't harm the battery life. And, whenever you force quit the app and again relaunch it in need, it takes more RAM storage than retrieving it from the background. And more importantly, the apps in the background are totally frozen by the Apple they won't take any substantial battery.

This misconception of swiping away the mobile apps is also cleared by the Craig Federighi when he reverted the customer asked Tim Cook is it necessary to quit multi tasking apps to save battery life.

Finally, when or When not to Force quit the Apps
 

There is no need to swipe away any app as it won't profit you in any terms. So, force stopping the app is a big No, but you have to use the Force Quit option when an app becomes unresponsive. Now don't waste your time in swiping up the apps and let the Apple take care of everything.
