    Have you tried a soft reset? Press volume up, then volume down, and the press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears.

    So are you saying if you authenticate (with FID), before you swipe up, you see them? i.e., present post auth, not there while locked.

    Those shortcuts are activated by 3D touch. If you don't have it on, those shortcuts serve no purpose.

    It’s the only way the buttons disappear.

    Because those only work with 3D Touch. If it’s off they wouldn’t work so they don’t show.

    Love it! It’s by far the best phone I have ever owned. The battery life is probably the most shocking thing (it’s excellent)

    Is it possible to add more shortcuts on the lock screen other than flashlight and camera?

    At first I won’t lie I was thinking about returning but after holding it and using it one handed in public it’s so much easier to hold then my plus and it has a nice size screen.
    I went back and forth about it but have decided to keep it.
    Have you used a wireless charger on it?

    There is no official date, but early 2018 is what Apple has said.

    Make sure you enable Reachability, it makes one hand operation even easier. Unlike other iPhones, it's disabled by default, it's buried in Settings, you have to enable it.

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Reachability

    Press harder. It's 3D Touch, not tap.
