    Hi everyone,

    I have been playing with my new iphone 6 and have found that if I double tap the home button (not pressing it just touching it) the whole screen jumps half way down. Is this a feature? or a strange bug??

    Cheers

    Reachability - Apple's idea to make it easier for you to use the phone one-handed.

    Reachability. Because the iPhone is 5.5", Apple decided to add a "one handed mode" by tapping or clicking the home button twice.

    How do you completely close apps running in the background now that the double tap of the button is used for reachability?

    You only tap the button to activate reachability. Double click is still the app switcher
