    Has anybody else noticed that the swipe up menu (to access flashlight, camera, Wifi, brightness...) is kinda picky and hard to get in the iPhone 6 plus? I use this feature a lot and found myself having to try a couple more times than I was used to on my 5s

    I tried in a friends 6 and this wasn't an issue.

    Honestly, I've felt that its been that way in general for iOS8.

    I haven't had any issues.

    Could it be that you're thumb isn't actually reaching the bottom to swipe up?

    Trust me I am swiping correctly. The only way I get it to work is if I swipe really fast. Again, this issue doesn't show on iPhone 6. Only on my 6 plus.

    Must be a software calibration sensitivity issue I hope they fix soon.

    I noticed it on my 5s too, doesn't happen often though, about the same on my 6+.

    It will sometimes start and then stop causing me to launch an app from the dock. Irritating but not major.

    I found that I was having problems because I was swiping too slow

    It's iOS 8 in general. I am having the same problem on my iPhone 6 and same with swiping the notification banner back up it's annoying. Sometimes the banner just stays there and I have to press the home screen to get rid of it which is weird.
