iPhone batteries are bad enough in general but it seems to be a 'done' thing to close all background apps in attempt to save energy.

Not to mention it's actually just really fun to do and quite therapeutic at the same time. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing them disappear, swipe by swipe.
