On the iPhone, most users do not force stop apps. In the multitasking menu, they keep the app open. You must close the programme fully from the multitasking menu and then reopen it on your iPhone.

For iPhone X and above, slide up and hold from the bottom portion. The multitasking menu appears as a result of this action. Remove the app from the background with a swipe-up gesture on the app card.
