    Just curious if anyone else has noticed this...

    Sometimes when I swipe over to do a search...the screen that says "Siri suggestions" and has the news and all that....the search bar is too high's basically inside the status bar and I can't tap it...

    If I swipe out of it...maybe go do some other stuff in other apps...and then try will be back to normal...

    this is iOS 9.0.2

    Anyone else notice this?

    Yes. Has happened to me on 6s, 5s and Mini 2. One of a number of graphical/UI bugs in 9.x.

    Experiencing this as well with my 5s. I'm sure this is something I can live with since it's just a minor glitch. However, it's really annoying sometimes. Here's how you can fix it:

    1. Whenever you see the search bar overlaps on the spotlight screen, go back to one of your screen then swipe down to do a search. Cancel it then see the search bar on the spotlight search to look fine now. This is temporary though.
    2. Go to Settings>Accessibility>Reduce Motion(on). This will permanently fix the issue(of course not until Apple do something about it) if you can get along with the slowness of the interface.

    Enjoy mate!
