The iOS 14.5 update brings Fast App Termination, which will offer an alternative to fast shutdown instead of suspending apps in the background.
There’s also a significant innovation for developers in iOS 14.5, which excites players with Apple’s addition of PS5 DualSense and Xbox Series S controller support. Applications can now be closed quickly.
What is Fast App Termination?
Fast App Termination, the fast app kill feature that finds itself in the iOS 14.5 beta under The State Repair Test; it seems to be a little more relevant to applications running in the background.
Quick shutdown will be applied instead of the suspension that background applications expect until they are reactive. This will re-open instead of data retention during hang and collect data from scratch.
iOS already has a very efficient way of suspending background apps, but fast app termination is predicted to contribute to battery efficiency. Although some sources have indicated that this will happen on developer-enabled iPhone phones, it is expected to be available to all users.
