    Can you please include any information directing people that force quitting applications should be rare. Force quitting an application while it is writing to a database file or communicating with a server will kill the application while doing so. This will result in data loss or corrruption. Force quitting apps is super bad, like pulling the plug on your computer while it is doing something.
    This has been blogged about over and over and people still force quit applications. It does not save battery, but rather takes more battery on average because the program has to be reloaded in memory and most likely has to re-establish network connections over cellular which will waste more battery. Most resident programs in memory do not background anything and consume 0 battery.

    Please encourage people to let iOS close applications like it has been designed to do:by itself seemlessly so you don’t have to.

      What is described in the article isn’t actually force quitting. The article is talking about normal quitting procedure, like doing command-q on a Mac. The application has time to save all of its files and quit properly. There is a way to actually force-quit an app in iOS, but i won’t go into that.
