When the iPhone X was first introduced, there was a strange way to forcibly close apps. While all other iPhones continued to use a two-step gesture in iOS 11, iPhone X users stuck with a nasty three-step gesture that was last seen in iOS versions at least six years ago. Luckily, iOS 12 is changing that and making stuffing apps as easy as it should be.
Previously, in iOS 11, you had to open the App Switcher, hold down any card, and then either tap the red key. Press the minus key on the app card or swipe up on the app card to to close it completely. All other iPhones kept the simple method of double-clicking the Home button and swiping up on a map to close it completely.
Now it's just as easy on the iPhone X. Who knows why Apple has decided to take the iPhone X a step further, but two steps back to force apps, but it's the way it should be should.
Just swipe up from the bottom of each app and then pause. In the middle of the screen for a second until all cards appear, then release. Just like in iOS 1
And just as you could before, if you want to close an app, you can force multiple apps at once by using multiple Fingers to stroke several cards at the same time.
