A gesture that Apple had to drop from iOS 11 due to a “technical constraint,” will return in a future update of the company’s mobile operating system.

The user simply hard-pressed along the left edge of the screen, and swiped to the right and released. The user could then swipe to the right to see a carousal of open apps. Apps could be closed by flicking them up and off the screen.

Android O will allow users to pause a system update and return to it later

If you’re a long time PhoneArena reader, you know by now that we often remind you to take care of certain things before starting the process of downloading and installing a system update on your phone. The suggestions actually come from both carriers and developers, and urge you to make sure that your handset is connected to a Wi-Fi network before initiating the update. If that is not possible due to any one of a variety of reasons (perhaps there is no Wi-Fi network near your location), you need to have a strong connection to your carrier’s signal.
