    I just want to acknowledge how much more sense reachability makes on this phone. Double-tapping the Home button always seemed not very intuitive, but swiping down on the Home bar makes sense because you’re essentially swiping the whole screen down.

    Sometimes I activate the most recent app when I swipe down for some reason. Maybe I am swiping at an angle instead of straight down sometimes.

    I never thought about that. I'm left-handed, so I never thought that someone swiping with their right thumb might cause an accidental app switch. Interesting.

    At the very bottom of the screen, quickly swipe down in a straight line, without angling. I swipe down at the very bottom of the display, in the middle and have never opened any applications inadvertently.

    Yes I know how to use reachability. Just every now and then the angle isn't perfect and I open the most recent app.

    Similar for me. Sometimes I activate something on the App like typing on the keyboard.

    Doesn’t work for me as easy as on 8+.
