    Over the last couple weeks, I've noticed that Siri would somehow get triggered on my iPhone 6 while in my front pocket when I sit or squat.

    I don't have "Hey Siri" engaged so I thought it was really strange. (I've been on the Public Beta program so that I thought it was just the beta being funny). Even with Siri disabled in system preferences...voice control would still trigger which should have been a clue.

    So today, I wiped the phone and restored it and then realized the issue remains. I thought it might be a dirty home button. As I wiped down the home button with a cloth, I realized that I could actually wake the phone by pressing the glass to the left and right of home button! I couldn't believe it.

    I will likely make an appointment with the Apple Store and see what they say unless you guys/gals have some ideas.
    Here is a unlisted video I just made to show this issue:

    Just came back from the Apple Store and they said the issue was the home button. It cost $109 plus tax for the complete screen replacement. I assume button is part of it the screen assembly. *Sigh* Yes, I should have gotten Apple care. But $79 up front vs. $109 now. At least it's fixed.
