    Hold top button until the power option appears, then hold the home button till the app quits.

    That's how you quit apps. Same function as holding down the home button on old iPhones.

    a) hold power button till slide comes up
    b) let go of power button
    c) hold home button until app quits

    they needed to change it because of voice control....holding down home now brings you to voice control...the new way to quit apps has been posted above

    this thread has nothing to do with what you are asking, but try these things:

    do a hard reset of the phone...hold down the sleep button and hold button until the iphone shuts off and then turns on again

    if this doesn't work, plug into itunes and do a restore

    you do the method of holding down the top button then pressing the home button for each app?

    I usually just press the home button when I'm finished with something. hmm..

    Just press home. It closes the app. The above method is for when your programs freeze or if you're SUPER anal about closing programs to make sure there are no running processes.
