Sometimes using an iPhone App you will be unexpectedly switch to a new App, e.g. Safari or iTunes Store.


Is there a "back button" of some sort on the iPhone so you can go back *exactly* where you were before?





( I find this to be the single most irritating things about my iPhone, which I otherwise love! )

Well, like a browser, there should be a Go Back button. It's a basic human interface dictum for over 40 yrs now, although Apple has for years been the worst offender in breaking their own rules.

Double tap the home key. This will bring up the list of recently used apps. The one on the far left is the last app you were in. Tap it.
