I get calls and there is absolutely no screen confirmation to answer it. I just have to miss the call and call them back. Even if I go to the phone app while its ringing and vibrating, there is no way to answer it.

Any workarounds to take the call? I certainly can't be the only one.

What version of iOS? Cell carrier? Model of iPhone?

I had the same thing the other day on my 6+ the screen lite up but it was still on the home screen while it was ringing... Apparently this problem has been there since at least a year now as I have been reading...

That happened to me a lot of times on several iOS versions (not beta) and several phones. And also to some of my friends. For me the solution was to simply wake the display by pressing the home button. Well, but not sure if don’t you have a X...:D
