Many of you know about this, many of you don’t. The multitasking function on all of the iphone models from 3GS and upwards has been around for quite some time, but I feel I need to write about it because there is an overwhelming amount of clients that is totally oblivious to it. If your one of those take your iphone or idevice out right now, unlock it and double tap the home button, you see that extra bar opening up at the bottom, that’s your your multitasking function right there. When you open an app and hit the home button to get back to the home screen you might think you have “closed” the app, that is not the case. The multitasking feature keeps it running in the back round and the app keeps using CPU resources and keeps any Internet connections open. This in turn runs down your battery more quickly and also makes the device run slower or causes it to lag, it will also dig into your data bundle and you might be wondering why your phone is using so much data and costing you a fortune. You might then ask why they have added this feature to the phone, well if it wasn’t for multitasking you would lose all your progress on that important e-mail you were writing when a call comes in, or you won’t get skype messages when your not actively inside the app. So how do you manage it right. Well when your inside the multitasking bar at the bottom of the phone just hold down your finger on one of the apps until they show a red “X”, close it by hitting the “X” and no it does not delete your app. Choose the apps you would like to be connected all the time and be aware of the ones you need to close often, this will ensure you get the most out of your idevice.
