    1) Hold iPhone in portrait while locked.
    2) Press and hold power button until the 'swipe to turn off' screen appears
    3) Turn iPhone to landscape
    4) Screen changes; press the cancel button

    You then see a split second of a landscape lock screen.

    Bug, future feature, removed feature, pointless feature?

    This is on my 6+, may not even be new - might do the same on previous models I don't know...

    just to add.. the landscape 'swipe to turn off' screen does work and function correctly. I assume that is a plus only thing, hence why the bug only works on plus?
