While Apple now allows you to close all the open tabs at one go in iOS 10 Safari, there is still no available tool to kill all your running apps at once on your iPhone. However, if you now have a jailbroken iPhone, there is a simple way you can use to make that possible.


A jailbreak tweak called KillBackground10 allows you to close all your open apps at the same time in iOS 10 with a simple touch of button, eliminating the need to close each of them one at a time. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to kill all your open apps at once with KillBackground10

Before we begin, you need to jailbreak your device, which may put you at security risks, as jailbreaking makes your device vulnerable to malware infections, data leaks and scams. We recommend you create a full back up of your device in case if something goes wrong during the process.
