I was just using my phone and the home button wouldn't register the "click" it vibrated but didn't do anything. Than I was trying to press power button and it was also not doing anything. Then all of sudden it did all the things I did simultaneously. It's like the phone lagged for a bit. So weird. Anyone else get this?

7plus btw

I mean I had it spring board on a website or so and get the passcode screen but that's just a bug with sites or app but never had the above happen. Eh I guess bugs happen

I experienced something odd yesterday (iPhone 7 Plus w/official 10.0.2). I was stuck in iMessage app after replying to a txt, couldn't exit out, could not power down nor hard reset. This went on for almost 2-3min & gave up, continued finishing my workout. 10min later I sat down problem was still there. So by pure accident I hit the silent mode button to the down position & then the phone started to do all the things I had previously tried, pressed (like a fast FWD movie of events). It was BIZARRE! I went ahead & hard reset phone, now that I had full control of it.

This happened again today. Home button gave me the Taptic feed back but not that nor the power button did anything. Is this a bug?

Yes. Mines done it several times, requiring a restart. Search for other threads and you'll find them.

Funny I just had this exact thing happen for the first time today and came here to see if anyone else has experienced it and this is the first thread I saw.

I am on beta though so I wasn't sure if it was related to that. It was frozen for a good 20 seconds though, which was quite annoying.
