As a matter of fact, some users consider this to be a beneficial change which makes use of the multitasking screen. Now, users will be able to close an app at a time, or, with the help of the multitouch feature, they can easily quit multiple apps at the same time.

1. First of all, double tap on the Home button on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch in order to open app switcher screen.

2. The following step is to swipe up on an apps preview panel to push it off the screen. When swiping up to the top of the screen, the running app is closed.

This process can easily be repeated for closing other running apps, as well.

In the case of multiple apps, users are able to see the benefits of owning a multitouch device with an improved operating system.

It is worth mentioning the fact that the multitouch gesture works with all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices that run on iOS 7. Using this method, users can close up to three running apps at the same time, but in the case of a small number of apps, users can easily quit one app at a time.
