Unlike iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or earlier iPhones with Home button that enables users to close Apps on iPhone 8/7/6 by double-clicking the Home button and then swipe up across the App to close it, the newly released iPhone X is not equipped with the Home button, which means there is a different way to force quit Apps on iPhone X. Closing Apps on iPhone X can be easily done with the help of App switcher mode. Can't wait to know more details? Read on. (For more tips on how to use your iPhone X, go to the page covering the tips for iDevices to find what you need.)

As mentioned above, to close Apps on your iPhone X, you need to enter App switcher mode on your device. Follow the steps below to learn how to make it.

Step 2: Touch and hold the App you'd like to close and then you will see a Minus button on each App card. (The way to force quit Apps by swiping up across the App doesn't work anymore on iPhone X.)

Step 2. As MobiMover has loaded all the data on your iDevice, you can start the transfer directly. Before that, you can set the storage path for the synced files of the iPhone/iPad. Otherwise, MobiMover will export the data to the desktop. Now choose the desired data categories and then click "Transfer".
