As you employ apps on your iPhone or iPad, your App Switcher begins to accumulate a running history of recently used apps within the order you’ve used them. These apps are suspended in an exceedingly frozen state to form multitasking more efficiently, but even suspended apps use a number of your handset’s RAM to form relaunching them faster.
iOS automatically manages your device’s memory to confirm the smooth operation, but if you’re a RAM nut then you’ll habitually force-close all of your App Switcher’s suspended apps after you finish using your device. QuitAll may be a newly released and free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Dave van Wijk that enables you to do that in one fell swoop as critical swiping upon each of the App Switcher’s individual app preview cards.
As shown within the screenshot example above, QuitAll appeases the minimalists by incorporating a native-Esque ‘Clear’ button at the top-right-hand corner of the App Switcher interface. Merely tapping on this button force-closes all apps that appear in your App Switcher and frees up an oversized chunk of RAM within the process.
Once installed, QuitAll adds a preference pane to the Settings app where you’ll be able to configure some options:
Here, you’ll be able to:
- Toggle QuitAll on or off on demand
- Enable or disable a Dark ‘Clear’ button
- Place the button at the top-left of the display rather than the top-right
- Prevent any Now Playing apps from being closed after you tap on the ‘Clear’ button
The developer includes an ‘Apply’ button at the right-right of the preference pane to assist you to save any changes you create to the tweak’s settings.
It’s worth noting that we appreciate the tweak’s final option – Don’t Quit Now Playing App. this is often especially useful if you’re taking note of music and you happen to tap on the ‘Clear’ button while doing so. It effectively prevents you from interrupting your song-listening experience, and that we felt that this was a pleasant touch.
As we noted earlier, force-closing apps aren’t necessary because iOS automatically manages your memory for you – it offloads apps that weren’t used as recently to form room for more resource-intensive apps. But if you continue to implement clearing the apps yourself, then QuitAll is one in all the most effective ways we’ve seen to try to do this up to now.
Those fascinated by downloading QuitAll can download it free from the Chariz repository via their preferred package manager. QuitAll supports jailbroken iOS 13 devices and is open-source on the developer’s GitHub page.
