    I noticed between me and my buddies phone that there's a half second delay between the two. Opens apps the same speed and everything else, just when I click the home button to close there's a delay before it does something. Anybody else notice this compared to earlier model 3gs

    He got his when they were first released and I got mine 2 weeks ago

    Do you have triple click for Voiceover turned on in Accessibility? I've always sensed a delay when I have that enabled.

    Is your iPhone jailbroken? Do you run Winterboard? If so, that's the problem.

    If that's not the case, try restoring your phone.

    triple click is the white and black setting and the phone is brand new

    wierd, under general and home settings, when i changed the double click to home instead of phone favorites, it got rid of the delay lol

    Disabling the triple click made it instant now

    Did someone else wanna try doin this to see if their phone does it? Disabled triple tap and have double tap set to home

    Disabling the triple click seems to have fixed this for me! This was annoying me for months, and I haven't been able to find a fix for this.

    Still, pressing the home button doesn't seem to respond instantly, but definitely faster than before. I used to have about a 1-sec delay, and now it seems like 0.1 or 0.2 second delay, or perhaps this is just how it normally is, and I'm imagining the very short delay. In any case, much better than before, thanks for the tip!

    As a developer I imagine the software is waiting a bit longer to close the app as it is waiting for you to triple click.
