All of you will know how to open an app in iPad tablets by tapping on the app’s icon. However, there are some differences between closing an iOS app and deleting the same. If you know the subtle differences between the two, you will be able to troubleshoot the iOS app, which may have bugs.
Tapping on the Home button once will only put the app to pause, and users mainly do that to switch between running apps and multitask. The app will be paused though, and it will still clog in the background of iOS consuming the iPad’s resources. To fully close the app, you need to double tap the home button of iPad and that will bring a list of recently opened apps in iOS.
To close the app, swipe the app’s preview window to the top of the screen and then turn off the device screen. This will reduce background app clogging and will gain optimal performance from the device’s battery. The recently opened app’s preview window will also let you switch between running apps and multitask.
As for deleting an app, it is not the same as closing, but a way of uninstalling the iOS app. Tapping and grabbing a hold of the app’s icon on the home screen is one way to delete the iOS app but there is also an alternate way to do that.
Navigate to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage to know the list of apps installed on your iPad refurbished tablet. Tap the app you want to delete, and you will get to see file size, alongside the Delete option highlighted in red. Sometimes deleting, closing, and restarting will troubleshoot the app-related bugs, but follow that up with a reboot as well.
Just like the closing of apps and deletion, please note there is a difference between hibernating by tapping on the Power button located at the right corner of iPad and turning off the device by holding the Power button for a few seconds and confirming shut down. Knowing these subtle distinctions will come in handy when troubleshooting an unresponsive iPad no matter how rare that may be.
