    Have you tried a hard reset?

    Make sure you do not have Reduce Motion turned on.

    Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion

    On = no fancy animations on the phone.

    That changed it for me, not worth it to have it off though…I'm not too fond of the motions

    Does it affect battery life, having it turned off ?

    You probably won't notice, you have a 6s+ which has ridiculous battery to begin with. I've never turned it on for any of my phones and never have issues of battery.

    I don't know if it effects battery, I just prefer not to have the animations :)

    Reduce Motion is one of the things activated when using the Low Power Mode, so it does have some effect, but on it's own the setting is so minimal. And again the OP has a Plus iPhone, they already have more than enough battery. At most I would expect maybe a 1-2% over a full change difference. Which is nothing. Even on the smaller 6 it doesn't effect it a whole lot.

    Mine move a tiny bit but not the full animation / movement. On some of them I can't even tell.

    I'm on 9.1 beta 2 and don't see the animation when going through the camera roll.

    EDIT: Turned off Reduce Motion and it works. However, I absolutely detest iOS animations so it's turned on again. :)
