I'm somehow getting true full screen on my iPhone right now

There are a few bugs within iOS, but is this one of them? I'm actually getting complete full screen on my iPhone; without the rather large buttons at the bottom.

Was this something they added into iOS6 recently or is this just a glitch?

You don't get it. Usually with the fullscreen you get the big buttons on the buttom. But I just got true fullscreen. With no buttons.

How did that happen?

The landscape full screen that was introduced in iOS 6 is without any buttons.

His doesn't even have the slight shadow buttons that pop the button bar out.

I just tried on mine and I get full screen but still have the two small shadow buttons in either corner.

This is one of those good glitches. I don't know what happened, but iOS has a ton of these little bugs.

Full screen landscape mode has been there since iOS 6 came out, no its not a glitch at all.

The only thing that was wonky is the two buttons that should show at the bottom when your in full screen mode...just rotate your phone back up and then back sideways again and those buttons will come back

There is a button to the far right that hides the buttons. It looks like 2 arrows. When hiding the button becomes virtual. But, this guy has been trolling for some time now.

Edit: Actually, if you're talking about the translucent buttons, then perhaps you're right. I have those 2 or 3 clear buttons at all times: <, > minimize.

I'm lost. Fullscreen mode should have NO BUTTONS at all.

Troll or not, his video shows NO buttons not even the virtual/translucent ones, so it's not the same as what you're saying.

Its just a small glitch, all OP has to do is turn his phone upright then back into landscape
