Sluggish iPhone or iPad??

I am often a day late and a dollar short when it comes to technology news, so I hadn't planned on sharing this information. However, after talking to several iPhone/iPad aficionados that were equally surprised, I decided this may be helpful to someone after all.

Is your iPhone or iPad running sluggishly or is your "home" button not working consistently or responding more slowly than when your device was new?? It could be that ALL of the apps you EVER have opened are still running in the background....and you don't even know it.


To see these apps, click the "home" button twice. The lower part of your screen will then display a row of apps in a new, little window. Touch and hold one of these icons (as if you were going to delete it) until a minus sign appears. Then "subtract" them one by one until those apps are gone. Your iPhone/iPad is now free from all those opened and secretly running apps!

You should NOT close down any apps that are pushing notifications---this includes "Words with Friends" (or you will miss your turn), your calendar (or you will forget to move the netbook cart---sorry Alicia!),  Google + apps...etc.

If this is a surprise to you, then you are probably sharing my initial reaction....oh my gosh!!
Enjoy and pass along!
