How to Close Apps on Apple Tv

Apple TV is a great device for streaming content from sources like Netflix and Hulu. It’s also a really easy way to use AirPlay to play videos, photos, and music from your Mac or iOS devices on your TV. But how do you close apps? When you finish using an app it will continue to run in the background unless you force quit it by going into Settings > General > Reset > App Closed. You can choose which unused apps will be closed when the device restarts by selecting one of the three options: “Just Once”, “Every Time”, or “Never Close” under the list of applications that are currently running. This way Apple TV will only close those selected applications after rebooting.

If you don’t select any of the apps to be closed, every app will run in the background even after you quit it. This can slow down performance and clog up your Apple TV’s memory which means that opening an app might take a bit longer than usual.

Let’s say you want to close VLC since you won’t be using it anytime soon. First open the app and quit it as usual by pressing the Menu button on your apple remote, selecting Quit, and confirming that you want to close this app. Then go to Settings > General > Reset > App Closed and select VLC from the list of running apps. That’s all there is to it!

Apple TV uses a simplified interface for multitasking purposes and closes inactive apps automatically. If you want to close an app without going through the settings, hold down the Menu button on your remote to quit that app immediately. You can even close all the apps at once by quitting Settings from this menu. Apple TV will then restart with any unused apps closed.
