    Hi,
    Ive notice this for awhile, but I just thought it was a glitch
    If you put your finger at the top of the home button over lapping the ring, then move you finger clockwise the screen moves down and do the same anti-clockwise and it pops back up

    any idea why???

    it is called reachability. You double tap the home button. Do not actually press it.

    it is for the 6/6+ and one handed use.

    I wish this was programmable, you could do so much with the capacitive touch. It could be a back button or something.

    That's a good idea. I'm able to use the 6 one-handed without Reachability.

    You are a manly man sir I am grateful for Reachability, especially for bringing down the NC one handed. My non-manly man hands can't reach.

    I wasn't "able" to use the 6 one handed until my main phone was a 6 plus for a month. After that the 6 feels like it's not a problem at all and the 5S feels like I actuall have to work harder, but in the opposite direction, due to how small it is.
