    I know I'm not crazy (OK, I am), but has anyone else noticed that iOS 9 has a smaller touch hitbox than iOS 8? When I go to launch an app, sometimes I am hitting the app two times in order to get it to launch. I noticed this on the GM, and it's still present on 9.1.

    When I use an iOS 8 device, even older devices that are slower than my iPhone 6, they seem to all have a better presence of where my thumb is hitting the screen. I'm able to quickly navigate iOS 8, whereas in iOS 9, I feel like I need to focus on centering my thumb on the app before pressing.

    What's interesting is you can touch the corner of an iOS 9 app and it won't launch. If you wait a second and press the app in the same spot, the app will launch. Can anyone else recreate this?

    Noticed this quite a few times on my iPhone 6.

    I'm having the same problem clicking on small text links (like the one to return to a previous app). I press it many times but I have to exit to home screen and return for the app to fix it. It's clearly a bug.

    Yes, I've noticed that. Some apps are worse than others.

    Yeah, very annoying. Many times I find myself tapping a link or a button on a webpage 2-3 times just to get it to register. Happened on my iPhone 6 and 6S so not 3D Touch related it seems.
