    I'm sick of closing each App one at a time as it drains off batt unneccessarily. Is there an App that closes all the Apps?

    Can;t be done without jailbreak based on how iOS is built and the permissions allowed to app writers.

    Only if you JB.
    Install RemoveBG.
    Remove all background apps including all listed in the taskbar.

    I use a battery monitor app from the App Store and that shuts off anything that's currently running in the background. I know it works as I was listening to music when I opened it and everything stopped.

    I'd buy that for a dollar. Or .99 as the case may be.

    your app is essentially closed within seconds after you press the home button or switch to another app.

    Closing apps one at a time is completely unnecessary. Apps in the multitasking switcher are either suspended, or not running at all. (Unless they are playing music, downloading something, or finishing a task.) They do not drain the battery at all.

    If that is the case, then all the info I recieved from friends are all wrong. They always advise its better to close the Apps to conserve batt.

    Ok, i won't bother.

    Really good to know now.

    Tks all.

    I have always made sure to close any apps when Im not using them, on my iPad and iPhone too. I always heard having a bunch on there would cause slow down. Maybe not. Now its habit, so I do it without even thinking. :-/

    Of course apps running in the background drain battery! Try locking your iPhone with Facebook still running in the background, and watch how your battery drains.
