It's hard to believe that iOS doesn't offer by default an option to close all apps running in the background. Instead, when you open the app switcher you need to close every app separately. EasySwitcherX tweak adds a few options to make this process faster.
Add EasySwitcherX Repo to your package manager.
What is EasySwitcherX?
EasySwitcherX is a free tweak that adds to a jailbroken device option to kill all apps running in the background quickly from the grid switcher. It offers also other useful features.
To activate the switcher menu simply open the grid switcher listing all opened apps and swipe any window down. EasySwitcherX tweak will display a menu to kill all applications, respring, and reboot your device. It supports iPhones and iPads on iOS 11 to iOS 14, and the latest iOS 15.
After installing EasySwitcherX with your package manager a new preference pane is added to the Settings app. From here you can toggle on or off the tweak and configure available options.
Other preferences provided by the tweak allow you to hide the switcher menu, disable confirmation for all actions, replace the reboot button with clean uicache function, and use sbreload for respring. Alternatively, try another tweak like Kill All Apps.
This kill all app tweak works with all modern jailbreaks including unc0ver, checkra1n, Taurine. I would recommend everyone to install this tweak as one of the first after jailbreak.
EasySwitcherX 2.0.1 is the newest version of the tweak and it's released for free.
