    Hard to explain, but my new 6s has this weird bug where apps and/or the home screen with icons sometimes "cuts out" and is pushed halfway below. See screenshot for an example. This happens only for a few seconds, then it goes back to normal. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm hoping it's some kind of bug with iOS 9, and not my iPhone itself. (The green/black 'blur' above the app is my background blurred out. If my home screen becomes cut in half, my folders/icons will move to the middle of the screen, vs. the top, where they are set.)

    That's a feature; when you double-touch (not press) the home button, the screen moves down half-way so you can reach the top. Make sure you're not inadvertently activating it by brushing against the home button.

    LOL

    Double tapping the home button enables reachability. It's a feature of iPhone 6 and up.

    Ohh, I didn't realize this. I came from the 5s. What's this feature for - reachability? Is there any way I can turn it off?

    For easier one hand use.

    Settings
    Accessibility
    Reachability :)

    Turning off useful features, always a sign of someone who doesn't know why they upgraded.

    I was still looking for what was wrong.. haha. I just wish Apple would go with a single light tap of the Home button as Back instead of the back arrow way up at the top-left corner. quicker than Reachability, and would allow more room for iOS 9's tiny Previous button.

    Swipe to the right to go back. Works in most iOS 8/9 apps. No need to reach up to the back arrow.

    there's just not enough of the apps I personally use that implement swiping back. and several apps only show their menu pane or an entirely different window on the left side when swiping. I guess a global Back function on the Home button is just wishful thinking on my part.

    There's no need to be so rude. Ever.

    I don't know about ever, but yes rude is mostly bad.


    He came from a 5s - that's the reason he upgraded

    Yeah. Not everyone has to know about Reachability or use it and turning it off doesn't mean they don't know why the upgraded.
