    Lots of people defending the decision that was made, because Apple wants you to take a step back and validate what you want to kill from memory before actually doing so.. like you cant do both in one fell swoop of a swipe...

    So much for that idea :D

    That was an annoyance that was short sighted and fortunately, that was short lived. I did without it using a jailbreak tweak and it had been a blessing

    Apple might have very well had some particular intention behind it, but perhaps decided that it didn't work out as well as they had imagined. Something that happens here and there.

    Worst decision ever and had me on the edge of returning the X. Its reversal is the main reason I'm running 12 as dd.

    Apple should have stuck with it. I really don't see why it should be so easy to force quit app.

    Imagine if hitting the red circle on a Mac app just force quit it?

    If users want a way to quickly clear apps, then maybe that ability to quickly swipe to dismiss apps from multitasking screen should exist, but it shouldn't force quit them. Maybe have force quitting buried deeper?

    I mean but you have
    To invoke the multitask switcher and swipe up, which is drastically different than swipe
    Horizontal to go between apps

    I think it has sufficient user validation without it

    Pressing Command-Q on the keyboard is rather instant to quit an app on the Mac, for example. And pressing an "X" button in Windows has been quitting/closing apps for a long time.

    That's true. But is quitting an app the same as force quitting it? Genuinely unsure there.

    Int he case of iOS that line seems to be somewhat blurred.

    You close apps that often? For what purpose?

    Habit. I go back to the main screen, open app switcher and swipe it away. It’s just my thaaang. Often I go back to the very same app a few seconds later. It’s kinda stupid. Usually rotate between insta, Twitter, iMessage, WhatsApp and repeat

    To be fair it's actually worse for your device and use basically if it's done like that in that context.

    It would help if they would add like a slight shadow or anything on active apps to see if they actually continue to run. Damn snapchat, WhatsApp for example seem to misuse it

    I can say that I always used to close every app all the time, but since the iPhone X I only close apps like Facebook, Google Maps, etc (the apps that can sometimes suck up your battery in the background). So it actually did do the job for me :)
