Turn off location tracking on your iPhone.
It is a well-known fact that apps on your phone track your location to mine the data. Thankfully, Apple gives you an option to hide your precise location. Simply go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and you can see which app tracks your location.
Switch between apps
Switching apps on the iPhone 12 Pro do not require you to go through a crash course. All you need to open the App Switcher, swipe up from the bottom of the display, and pause for a second with a finger still on the display. The apps will appear, and now you can tap any of these to open the app or swipe up to force quit the app.
You can reach the Control Center by swiping down from the right side of the screen. Keep in mind that you can even swipe down from the top right of Reachability to access Control Center.
