Since installing iOS12 on the iPad the 4 finger gesture to minimize an app now launches the task manager half the time.

Is there a trick to getting it to minimize instead of popping up task manager?

Try to do it faster! Works half the time for me :D

Flick rather than swipe, if that makes sense.

P.s you can do it with one finger from the bottom of the screen now

I think I got it.. as GreyOS mentioned, a slight sliding motion downward while doing the gesture opens task manager now.. have to keep the gesture centered without a downward drift which I do when I'm in a hurry.

Thanks all for your responses.

Also,
Pinch with hand mostly open = app switcher
Pinch until hand closed = home screen
