My iPhone 5S on iOS 8.1.2 has some weird status bar overlay glitch. If I look at a screenshot of another iPhone picture my status bar overlays the pictures in Camera roll.

Anyone else? Any fixes?

Have you tried restarting it?

I remember in my early day of app development, one of my apps did this because it partially crashed.

Are you jailbroken? Hard to tell if it's a different font or just bolder.
Yes I am but this is doing this before i JB last night too.

I can conclude the JB is not responsible. Not using any different fonts or anything.

But seems like some sort of zoom and/or size changes are involved (compared to just stock settings essentially), right?

I have seen a glitch like this on my 6 Plus, but I think it was with different icons overlaying weird on top of each other.

You can see what I'm talking about in the signal strength indicator of the secondary screenshot on the homepage of the Erodr app. Kinda funny that glitch has been on their site for months and I'm one of the only people to notice it. I'm your typical pixel-perfect designer, however. Link: http://www.erodr.com/v3/index.html

Yup, sometimes it doesn't happen.

Heres a good way to test it out. Take a snapshot of your home screen or in an app. Then look at the picture in your camera roll a few mins later

I get that even without looking at images. Sometimes the status bar overlays my address bar in Safari. Running 8.1.3 and it has occurred in every version since iOS 8 came out (iPhone 6+). Usually if I rotate to landscape, then go back to portrait it corrects itself, but that never happened with iOS 7.

Thank you, this is exactly what I'm talking about. Glad someone else has this issue. Doing the landscape thing did temp fix it.
