    Every time I swipe up on an app it doesn’t close. Any help? Video to follow.

    Hold your finger down on an app until you see the red minus signs at the top left of each app; then you can swipe them away

    Yeah I had to YouTube this myself. This is actually the only thing I do not like about the X.

    It’s puzzling to me why they even made this a feature just for the X. It’s not like they changed the cards system it’s still the same. Just the process to get to the cards is different because of the no home button.

    Agreed. Really hope they change it back, or at least make it an accessibility option....

    That’s what came across my mind as well. The motions are super consistent, so the “close app,” lock surprises me. I’d definitely prefer that as an accessibility option, especially since swiping up on the “cards” is a meaningful action.

    I was trying to do this at the Apple Store today and couldn't figure it out. Thanks.
