how to close apps(camera for example),not just going back to Home screen?

Posted

i would like to close an app immediately after I'm done with it, and not having to do it by going to the home screen and then press for 2 seconds on the home button etc.

Hi nickfree,

You can just press and hold the home button from within the app and then swipe up on the app thumbnail to close it.

Thanks, Michelle

i was thinking more of an integrated x button in within the the app without having to press/hold the home button, but that's ok. Thanks.
