Apple has fixed the most annoying thing about iPhone X

The gestures that have replaced the home button on iPhone X generally work great. But one of them is so impossibly, unnecessarily dumb it made my head explode every time I had to use it: closing apps. 

To fully close an app on the iPhone X, you need to flick up from the bottom of the screen, then press and hold for a second or so, which will give you a flickable list of all your open apps, complete with the minus (“-“) signs in the top left corner of each window. To close an app, you have to tap and hold one of them for another second, and then you can flick them up, one by one, to close them. 

It doesn’t sound like a lot of work, but if you do this often (I do it all the time), it gets very annoying. Worse, there’s no real reason for the feature to be this complicated. On most Android phones, you can flick the apps to close them right away, without holding them first, and you can also close them all at once by tapping on a single icon. It’s easier on other iPhones as well — double click the Home button, then just swipe up to close apps, no extra holding needed. 

I’ve got good news, though. As noticed by tech video producer Dom Esposito, in iOS 12, that superfluous long hold of the app before you can close it won’t be necessary on the iPhone X anymore. 

Unfortunately, there still doesn’t seem to be a way to close all your apps at once; I guess that particular Android feature will be introduced in iOS 13. 

Now, if only Apple would fix that accidental screenshot issue in iPhone X. Oh wait, it is!
