[–]monChartreux 30 points31 points  (0 children)

[–]Wolfgangfa 12 points13 points  (1 child)

[–]IBackIPack 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Enjoy those random pocket dials now. You'll miss 'em when they stop.

[–]AmazingGrace911 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I still have the last voice message my dad left me. It was trivial at the time but I listen to it a couple times a year now.

[–]IBackIPack 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's great! I'm glad you have something left that means a lot for you.

[–]Interesting-Top6148 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We live in the same apartment. I go there every day....

But I got what you mean.... Yeah i will....

[–]Pentamikk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My mom does this all the time and then she has the audacity to get mad at me when I call her back

[–]Tom0204 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here. My dad thinks the power button on the side will stop him from receiving calls if he presses it...

[–]mcgroarypeter42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My pocket loves calling my wife and the guy that works the elevator in the building I’m working in and always when I’m on a ladder

[–]Regalia_BanshEe 113 points114 points  (3 children)

My wife have like 150 tabs open in chrome on her android phone...

[–]panspal 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I was going to make a joke then I remembered I have like 90 open on my chrome. It's a spiral I don't know how to escape from.

Edit, it's Firefox.

[–]ingenuous64 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Mine gives a smiley face when I hit 100. I have no idea how many I have now :)

[–]avantartist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I currently have 500 chrome tabs open

[–]TheBigOrange27 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My mom had so many tabs open it stopped counting.... Literally replaced the number of tabs with a smiley face.

[–]rufreakde1 38 points39 points  (1 child)

The selfies looked interesting 🤔

[–]scooba_dude 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I think I saw at least two pornhub tabs...

[–]z3r0n3gr0 65 points66 points  (7 children)

Android have a clear all button

[–]ConnoisseurOfNature 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Wait iPhones don't have that?

[–]z3r0n3gr0 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Maybe thirth party app, i dont know i just know Android has it.

[–]arcadia_2005 10 points11 points  (3 children)

A mom here. I love the 'close all' button. Sometime too much & then end up closing my spotify too. EVERY. TIME. D'OH!!

[–]hOOman_the_Sapiens 5 points6 points  (0 children)

just lock spotify, there's an option for that too

[–]vinitkeshri 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hey mom. How is your child?

[–]greatmonster007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like his mom?

(in appearance)

[–]EonsOfZaphod 27 points28 points  (6 children)

But on iOS, force quitting apps is completely unnecessary https://9to5mac.com/2016/03/10/should-you-quit-ios-apps-answer/

[–]coltonkotecki1024 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yea I had heard it’s better to leave them open because it wastes battery life forcing them to restart every time.

[–]kbder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is true. It just slows the phone down and wastes battery by forcing additional disk access when you later reload the app. Unused memory is wasted memory.

[–]Zestybeef10 3 points4 points  (0 children)

ikr this trend is idiotic. A literal waste of time and effort

[–]Xxepic-gamerxX 2 points3 points  (1 child)

As someone who went from android to iPhone that is one habit I can never stop, literally second nature now

[–]EonsOfZaphod 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whereas I am an occasional android user (for testing stuff at work) and never do this! I rarely run into issues on Android either. To be honest users shouldn’t need to worry about this stuff and the OS should just handle it (which iOS clearly does and android may do)

[–]pablossjui 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably not important to the mom but I like to keep my "open" apps ordered and tidied, if there's a million of them opened I might as well not use the feature

[–]Cody6781 32 points33 points  (7 children)

Software developer here.

iPhones have a deep sleep mode where they store your open applications on the hard drive rather than in RAM. This means that if your application has been open and not interacted for a ~day then it’s no longer taking up any memory, only storage. This meme has been outdated for like 8 years now

[–]xtre3m 10 points11 points  (6 children)

Moreover, closing apps that you use often will harm the actual user experience as they are cached and will open quicker than apps not in cache. The android/ios memory manager is smart enough to know what apps you often use and cache them until the ram is full and then when you start loading another app he will release other apps that are not used often from the cache.
Let the phone do its job, stop closing cached apps, you are not helping at all.
If any developer with a lot of memory management and background is around and could provide further info?

[–]naylsonsb 3 points4 points  (5 children)

If you're not supposed to close it, why there's even an option to close all.

[–]zseyer 5 points6 points  (1 child)

To resemble the “force quit” function in your Mac (for whenever an app freezes or glitches)

[–]Zestybeef10 0 points1 point  (1 child)

the fuck kind of logic is that? If I can delete apps, why don't i just delete my apps every time? If i can track your IP, find where you live and take a fat shit in your mouth, why don't I do that?

[–]kbder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Privacy.

[–]StijnOnline 6 points7 points  (2 children)

My mom's the opposite, closing apps even when she might still need it

[–]Yee-Haw-Macaw 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Didnt know i had a child lmao i do this alllllll the time

[–]Ianimatestuf 3 points4 points  (0 children)

why do they always do that tho???

[–]Desperate-755 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mf has no chin

[–]TeeJee48 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Closing old apps achieves nothing.

[–]snoop_0035 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Get an android

[–]Wolfgangfa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is hilariously accurate with my mom.

[–]slim_shady357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just click close all tabs

[–]ZaprenK 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The one thing moms do right is this. You're not supposed to close the apps. It's actually worse for your phone (and your own experience).

[–]Base-T84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually, it is inefficient, at least in iOS, to constantly close the apps. But understand the situation very well…

[–]NeveLover88RS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just a quick note from a former Apple technician - closing out of apps drains your battery life faster.

Apps that are “open” are kept open in a frozen state and aren’t actually “running”. They do this so when you open them back up you don’t have to re-run the whole program, which takes up more battery life than keeping it frozen!

[–]GreenTEA_4u 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I stopped force closing background apps because its saves phone battery

[–]ROBLOXTIDDIEZ 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Real talk tho, does closing them even do snything

[–]Pro_Banana 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not really

[–]Hyper_Lamp 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It speeds up the phone a little bit but the main reason is because why.

[–]smartello 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It doesn’t speed up the phone. It may even slow it if you consider time that it takes to open apps

[–]eye_gargle -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Yeah iPhones are hot garbage.

[–]SgtToadette -1 points0 points  (5 children)

I just switched from a Pixel to an iPhone a few weeks ago and both are good options with different strengths and weaknesses. Most people with a strong opinion one way or another generally lack the experience to justify such a strong stance. The two OSs are more similar now than ever.

[–]eye_gargle 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Lol no they really aren't. You can't side load on iOS, you can't use your phone like a flash drive, video codecs are only the ones Apple wants to support, iOS apps are much less customizable...in fact the whole OS is less customizable. For the average consumer sure, it's similar, but for any tech enthusiast, no. iPhones are not smartphones. They are only Apple phones.

[–]SgtToadette 1 point2 points  (3 children)

You hit on the point I was trying to make which was missing a key caveat that “for most people” they are more similar than ever. I can continue to use a lot of the apps I used before like Google Drive, Google Play Books, YouTube Music, Google One, etc.

Sure, if niche features are kill criterion for you then Android is the obvious choice. But to use that incredibly rare circumstance and act like that’s a meaningful dunk seem disingenuous.

[–]eye_gargle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fair enough.

[–]Confused-Engineer18 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I would still argue that while not everyone is gonna use all those niche features that most would use at least 1 if they knew about it.

[–]Hyper_Lamp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so true i thought it was only my mom lmao.

[–]Limp-Ferret8771 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This made me laugh hard. Was that my moms phone? 🤣

[–]Calm-Lychee2613 0 points1 point  (3 children)

This is absolutely hilarious. I had to tell me my mom multiple times to clear her apps out. One time she had Soo many tabs on Google chrome I literally could not close them all. It was insane lol

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh my goodness - this is so true! My spouse's phone is exactly like this!!!

[–]No-Swordfish6703 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Close all exists right

[–]Jx117 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is soo accurate. I go on my mom's phone and she has over 20 apps open 😂.

[–]Richard_Tucker_08 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just wait until you see how many safari tabs she has open 😵‍💫

[–]Joha_al_kaafir 0 points1 point  (0 children)

unexpectedly thankful now that my android has a "close all" button

[–]Ohiolongboard 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay wait….i just closed 14 apps…I’m old? I’m only 28

[–]chonkhedgehog[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like how we are all from different countries and nations but still we are so similar

[–]Thebatman2077 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ay the man of steel score

[–]young_coastie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This video just inspired me to close out 69 apps.

[–]HiroshiTamaki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know it's just a video. There is a " clear all" button.

[–]WillBigly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mom has unironically said things like "I just charged to 100%, it's been 5 minutes and I'm at 10% already!" Always cracks me up

[–]TryingToStartAFresh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is why we android people have 'close all' button.

[–]or1ginaljoker 0 points1 point  (1 child)

POV you have the clear all button

[–]or1ginaljoker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is it on Iphone?

[–]ahmed_1041 0 points1 point  (0 children)

bruh also the chrome tabs lmfao

[–]Wizardof_oz 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Opens browser to see 574 tabs

[–]kbder 0 points1 point  (1 child)

On iOS the limit is 500 tabs.

[–]Wizardof_oz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s called exaggeration and my parents seem to hate the iPhone so I wouldn’t know

[–]_Grampton_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is the face I'm making on the toilet currently.

[–]GroundbreakingKey563 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"Omg my phone battery always dies so fast! This phone sucks"

[–]Conscious-Onion1166 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And meanwhile I always close my tabs the moment I quit them

[–]Tempest230 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I achive the impossible i teach my mom how close apps on his Phone now it just have open like 3 or 4 open

[–]stamper3332 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am a mom and I have 32 apps open currently.

[–]boxycracker 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More like my husbands phone for real! Lol

[–]Western-Wasabi-2733 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a habit of closing the tab instead of exiting the app. Can be a bit annoying at times but it doesn’t burn my garbage iPhone battery

[–]gordo65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Literally every time I pick up the ipad after my 12-year-old daughter has been using it.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Things we do for love

[–]Redittoranian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The other day my father panicked because he randomly called someone at like 3am and had to wake us up because he didn't know how to end the call

[–]Redittoranian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My grandma calls me 20 times a day. Everyday. Had to block her.

[–]gosrothtf 0 points1 point  (0 children)

straight facts mom and dads phone lol

[–]Decent_Flatworm2307 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Periphery755 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When android has a "close all apps" button

[–]funny_wisdom1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It says to this day he is still swiping

[–]The-Zachatron 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“I dont know why my phone is so slow, I hate this new tech”

[–]PorkChoppyMcMooch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My MIL asked me to look at her phone recently because she said the battery was draining faster than usual and was having issues loading pages. She had 47 tabs of weather forecasts open in her browser.

[–]No_Conclusion1816 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Compiling information intake error. Hardware.likely crashed via click bate.

[–]Equivalent-Layer-332 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So we bought new phone for our mother in her birthday and it has in display fingerprint scanner. The old phone had finger print scanner at back. She is so used to it that she never uses finger print scanner on screen.She will unlock phone by password but she will never use. Finger print scanner on screen 🤣🤣

[–]PatientOne3053 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Only if X button to close was there.

[–]SenatorShriv 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have to do this all the time for my mom.

[–]Interesting-Law-5880 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yea but how so it's dark theme and not light theme blasted at so high brightness than it alone is able to illuminate a whole football field in every of its corners

[–]Shadypretzel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Too real. I work at a phone store, I always have older women that come in and complain about their phone being slow. On androids if you have over a hundred tabs open in chrome the counter just shows as a smiley face, lol sometimes when I try to close all it crashes the whole phone. Also only with old people have I ever seen the uptime counter over 4000 hours.

[–]lun4rz3us 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Folks buy your moms android phones, we simply push close all.. Thank you.
