Closing your background apps in iOS 7

Who would not love to save your phone’s battery. Background apps are the biggest culprits in draining your iPhone’s battery. You think it was easier to turn off those background running apps in iOS 5 or iOS6. But believe me they made it even easier in iOS7. Every new update they come up with, they figure out ways to make things easier and easier for user like us. Here’s how you would close those background apps in new iOS7:

1. Double tap your Home button.

2. You can see the screens minimizing and showing you the background apps in thumbnail sizes in a line next to each other.
