    Since I have jumped to iOS 9 (from 8.4.1 to 9.2.1), there seems to be something wrong with my iPhone 5s. If I update apps, they are no longer in correct order on my home screen. Furthermore e.g. the Youtube-app-symbol is shown twice. After restarting the phone everything is alright again. The apps are reordered correctly. What is wrong? How can I fix it? Has anybody noticed this glitch too?

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't have exactly the same issue, but on my 5s updating apps does strange things too. Sometimes they get stuck on installing and I have to restart the phone, other times it says it's updated but then later on it starts installing again, getting very hot in the process. It often deletes the app leaving a greyed out grid icon, and when I download it from the app store again it puts in somewhere else on the home screen, before going back to the original location after a reboot.

    Haven't a clue why these happen, assume there's something wrong with the app store in 9.2.1, as I only started getting this after that came out. Sorry I can't actually help!

    @Howard Ellacott: Thanks a lot for your answer. Are your sure, this happens for the first time since 9.2.1? What was your previous installed version? Do you update OTA or via iTunes?

    Previous was 9.2.0, updated OTA. Nearly every update I get gets stuck, and it's only happened on 9.2.1, although that could just be a coincidence.

    I would back up your device, if you haven't done so already, to iTunes or iCloud, then restore.

    I have updated via iTunes from 8.4.1 to 9.2.1. So I think it makes no sense to reset the phone, because it was a "clean install" with backup.

    Same on iPhone 5S. No idea why this is happening.
