Why Close Apps on Your Google Pixel 6?

Google Pixel 6 is part of UR's diverse selection of refurbished Android devices. It sports Google's Tensor processor and a vibrant OLED display, making it a capable multitasker.

However, every application that stays open consumes a bit of your device's resources. Although the Android system is designed to manage apps in the background efficiently, closing unnecessary apps can still help in some cases. 

Here's why:

  1. Optimise Battery Life: Active apps, especially those running heavy processes or using data, can drain your battery faster.

  2. Enhance Performance: Freeing up your phone's RAM can help apps run more smoothly.

  3. Prevent Overheating: Some apps generate a lot of heat when running in the background. Closing them can prevent your device from overheating.

"Taking control of your open apps is a simple step towards optimizing your Google Pixel 6's performance," says a UR representative.

Steps to Close Apps on Google Pixel 6

Before we proceed, it's important to remember that not all apps should be closed. Some apps, like your messaging apps or email, need to stay active for real-time updates. 

Make sure to only close apps that you're finished using or that you don't need notifications from.

Now, let's jump into the steps:

  1. Access the App Switcher: Tap the square icon at the bottom of your screen. This brings up your "Recent apps" screen, where you'll see a list of all open applications.

  2. Scroll Through Open Apps: Swipe left or right to browse the apps currently running on your phone. This interface allows you to view what each app is up to, so you can decide which ones to close.

  3. Close Unneeded Apps: To close an app, simply swipe it off the screen. If you wish to close all apps at once, tap on "Clear all" or "Close all" at the bottom or top of the screen.

You've now freed up system resources on your Google Pixel 6!
