iPhone 4S Tips and Tricks | To Force-Quit or Not to Force-Quit

You’re surfing the Web, when all of a sudden Safari stops scrolling. You try tapping any of the on-screen buttons, but you can’t get a reaction. The app has become utterly unresponsive. This kind of situation is called an app freeze or crash. For whatever reason, the app has encountered an error it can’t recover from, and it’s stopped doing everything while it tries to figure out what the problem is and solve it (if it even can).  Here some iPhone 4S Tips and Tricks.

iPhone 4S Tips and Tricks | To Force-Quit or Not to Force-Quit

If you don’t want to wait for the app to try to fix itself, you can tell it to force-quit. There are two ways to do this. If the app’s not completely frozen, and you can get to the home screen, you can double-click the Home button to bring up the multitasking shelf. Find your app’s icon and tap and hold it; after a moment, the icons start to wiggle and a little minus-sign button (–) appears in the upper left corner of each app. Tap the minus button of the unresponsive app, and it shuts down. You can then safely relaunch it from your home screen.


If your app is totally frozen and you can’t get to the home screen, hold down the On/Off button on the iPhone until the Slide To Power Off slider appears. Then release that button and hold down the Home button until the app exits.

  1. Thanks for sharing. It is important and one should pay attention.

  2. I always try to close apps like this after I’ve finished using them in the hope that it will make my battery a bit, not sure how much difference it will make.

  3. Greetings! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying
    to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

  4. I like what you guys are up too. This kind of clever
    work and reporting! Keep up the amazing works guys I’ve added you guys to blogroll.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. Have you ever considered about adding a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think about if you added some great visuals or videos
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the best in its
    field. Amazing blog!
