Eraser Tweak iOS 14 Clean Up App Switcher by One Step
We all expect a feature that can close all apps at once to keep the iPhone app switcher clean, just like the running Android phones. But it is not yet available for iPhone or iPad. Although Apple has released various iOS updates, it does not appear that the feature will be added to iOS. This feature already exists to remove apps on all Android phones at once like Pixel, OnePlus, Galaxy. Apple is leaving out the option on iOS that apps are optimized to stay there and must be forcibly closed when activated. However, Apple has natively allowed remove opened apps one by one by swiping up cards.
Fortunately, if you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPad, closing apps at once is not a problem anymore. iOS developer 0ldGold has released a jailbreak tweak called Eraser, which helps you to clean up your app/grid switcher just by one step. Significantly, the eraser tweak provides two ways to clear the app switcher by swiping down app cards and tapping the erase button at the top of the screen.
You can also prevent removing apps from the app switcher, such as media and navigation apps. Furthermore, it allows you to exclude some apps erasing if you want from the tweak settings.
Once installed, it adds a dedicated preferences pane to the Settings app to configure the tweak users liking.
