    Hio there!
    I have a question about app games.
    When you are finished playing a game, for example Brave Frontier.
    Does it matter when you press the home button?

    I mean is it bad for the iPhone if you have to go and just press home button?

    I'm not talking about if the game saves or not, just if it's bad for the iPhone.

    //Thanks for the help!

    It should not affect the phone in general, but it may affect the battery if it stays running in the background. To check if it is, double tap the home button to see. Then if you see it, you can remove it from running in the background, unless you're going back to it and don't want to lose anything.

    No, it does not matter when you press the home button. It has no affect on the phone. By pressing the home button, you close the app.

    The only thing using the home button to exit a game will do is possibly using up RAM to keep the game in its frozen state.

    If you press the home button, then the game will be automatic saved. The game doesn't exit, you can see it in the background.
