    Is just me or whenever we use the app manager (double click on the home button) and go back to the normal screen, the wallpaper gets darker and less vivid? It will get with normal colours after locking and unlocking. It's very subtle, but i'm 99% certain that there is a colour difference.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    Definitely it gets slightly darker and duller... I've tried to compare with the same photo on the photos app and it's darker! Not by much, but there is a difference.

    iPhone 6 here.

    I'm not having the issue. I think your eyes could be tricking you, especially if your recently open apps have lots of white space.

    no. fine here. as with every release every year, placebos are left & right & too many are looking for problems & flaws (some on purpose, some not)

    I started experiencing this issue with iOS 8.4 on my iPhone 6. It only happened a handful of times. A few hours after I updated to iOS 9, it happened on my iPad Air. My quick fix is to open Control Center and adjust the brightness. It's quick, and it works.
