iPhone Battery Problem, Part 2

One thing that drains battery life is when multiple apps are running.  Even if the app is not currently on the screen, it is still running.  Even when you power off the iPhone and turn it back on, the apps are still running.  Each app that runs is draining the battery, especially ones that use a 3G signal or wi-fi, which is at least 90% of all apps.  However, you can close the apps that are running in the background, but the process is not as straightforward as it should be.

First, press the black square button twice in quick succession, similar to how you would when double clicking a mouse button.  A toolbar of running apps will show up at the bottom of the screen.  Touch one of the apps on the corner of the icon and attempt to drag it.  The icons should start wobbling and a red circle will appear on the icons.  Press the red circle of each icon to close all apps.  That will close them and preserve battery life.  It is kind of a hassle the way it is currently laid out, but that is effective for freeing up battery life for your iPhone 4S.  I tried showing this to a friend who has an older iPhone, but it did not work for them.
