Manage Recent Apps on Your Phone

Your phone was built for multitasking, so naturally, it has the ability to alternate between multiple apps. So, if you're interrupted by a call or message, you can get right back to what you were doing. Just navigate to Recents to see all your opened and recent apps - they're all in one place for your convenience.

What you can do in Recent apps

Now you can see your recent apps with a single touch. Here's how to manage them:

From the Home screen, touch Recents. It's to the left of the Home button. All your active or opened apps will be listed.

  • To open an app, simply touch it.

  • To view more apps, swipe left or right.

  • To close an app, swipe up.

  • To close all apps, touch Close all.

Turn on Suggested apps

Your phone is so smart, it can suggest apps for you based on your usage. They'll appear at the bottom of the Recents page.

From the Home screen, touch Recents. Touch More Options > Settings. Touch the slider next to Suggested apps to turn on or off.
