Welcome to the iPad Tip of the Week: Using the Multitasking Bar

The multitasking bar displays all of the apps that you have recently used and that are currently running in the background. If too many apps are running in the background, this can slow down your iPad or cause apps to crash. You can solve this problem with the following steps:

  1. Quickly press the Home button twice to bring up the multitasking bar.
  2. Tap and hold any of the app icons that appear on the bar until they start to jiggle and red minus signs appear on the corner of each app.
  3. Tap the red minus sign on each of the apps until all apps in the multitasking bar are closed.
  4. Close the multitasking bar by pressing the Home button once.
