Good news for Samsung Galaxy phone users! Have you ever accidentally closed an app while trying to clear all open apps? Well, worry no more because now there is a way to prevent this from happening. With the One UI interface used on many Samsung Galaxy phones, you can now lock certain apps to keep them from closing, even when you press the “Close all” button.
Here’s how it works: simply open the Recent Apps screen, tap on the app icon above the app you want to keep open, and select “Keep open” from the list of options. Once you press that button, a message will appear on the bottom of the display, indicating that the app has been kept open for quick launching. A lock icon will also appear on the lower-right corner of the app in Recent Apps.
By using this feature, the app you’ve selected to lock can be accessed quickly and easily and won’t be closed even if you press the “Close all” button. If you ever want to unlock the app, simply press on the lock icon that appears with the app in the multitasking screen.
This feature is a game-changer for Android users who have experienced the frustration of accidentally closing an app. No longer will you have to worry about losing your place in an app because of a simple mistake.
In addition, Apple has also shared some interesting information about closing recent apps. According to a post on Apple’s community support page, closing apps does not improve performance or battery life. In fact, it may worsen battery life and make your iPhone slower because it takes longer to reopen an app from storage than to have it restart from a suspended state.
So, for both Android and iPhone users, it’s not always necessary to close all open apps immediately. Unless an app is misbehaving or consuming too much battery power, there is no need to close it.
With these new insights and the helpful locking feature on Samsung Galaxy phones, users can now enjoy a more seamless and efficient app experience without the worry of accidentally closing important apps.
