    This doesn't happen very often, I probably see it once per day, but does anyone else notice their home screen 'jitter' every once in a while? I notice it out of the corner of my eye when my phone is left alone and the home screen is still illuminated. I often let the screen auto shut off and I expect that if you don't do this, then you won't see the 'bug'. It doesn't occur during use at all.

    When I say 'jitter' I mean that the icons seem to momentarily disappear and then come back in a split second. There are no event logs immediately after this has happened...

    My iPhone 6+ sits in front of me, on my desk, about 4 hours a day and I always let the phone go back to sleep. I have never seen this "jitter" or had the icons "blink" in months of use.

    The OP must be using an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Hahaha

    Cool. Mine does it and with all the other bugs I'm still not sure if this is an iOS8 issue or a hardware fault.

    Why are you doing this as this wastes battery? Always a good habit to sleep the device when you're finished using it, and this also prevents pocket dialing (when pocketing it while still awake).

    If I am holstering my phone, I put it to sleep before. I am talking about it being on my desk for hours while using it on and off while running my business. Much of this time it is plugged in so I am not concerned about the battery.

    That makes a lot more sense.

    Not really, considering that I see it a max of once per day, that I can't recreate it at will, and that it lasts barely a second...
    I no way am I complaining about this as it seems to cause no issues, I was just curious if anyone else has seen it.
