    Hi all,
    I recently got the iPhone 7 128GB! It's a really great phone. There is one small bug though. One doubletappingb the home button, when in an app, to open the app switcher, the animation seems to be a bit "laggy". Is it supposed to be like that on the 7?

    Also, how good is the battery supposed to be? Right now it's at 93% since full charge (33 min usage, 2 hour 40 min standby). Photos background activity is at the top (downloaded photos from another device).

    I have seen this so called bug being reported by some people on different forums so it might just be something apple wants right?

    Does the battery seem okay? Maybe it'll stabilize after a few days of use?

    I'm not sure what you mean. I'm typing this on my iPhone 7 128 GB and I don't see any lag or anything. The animation doesn't initialize immediately when I double press (tap is for reachability) the home button, but that's less than a fifth of a second delay. Likely designed to prevent iOS to being seen as "laggy and zippy and painful to watch" like some Samsung android are.

    The lag only appears when multitasking (switching apps with a double tap). The movement isn't smooth and it seems like it's gonna close the app but then decides to go into multitasking view. Otherwise the phone works like a charm!

    Did you end up fixing it?

    I have to say I got the same device and the lag you mention is non existent.

    I still haven't got it fixed, but I went into a store and tried out an iPhone 7 which had the same lag. I've gotten used to it now...

    It's by design.

    You're interrupting the animation and it's going into the multi tasking menu.
