I can't recall doing anything there. Or do you mean its something default?

Check settings related to zoom there and disable those. Also check on accessibility shortcut.

Hi everyone,
Has anyone had this issue with a box that has a handle?
It can be moved around the screen but I cannot get rid of it other than rebooting the phone.
Is it some kinda bug?
TIA/J



Double tap with 3 fingers within the box and it will disappear!

Just call Apple support. They should know what it is before you're able to find anything in the settings...

That would be an absolute waste of time for such a small issue.
I'm not seeing much evidence that It's a zoom feature.

After a day of that box on my screen & not knowing how to get rid of it, it'll become a big issue for me.

Apple's excellent & fast support process will make it a breeze to work out if it's a setting or bug, should the OP not have any luck.

Yeah, thanks everyone for your help!
Firstly I apparently suck nowadays at searching :D
I had the zoom on in Accessibility, but as you see in my pics there is no zooming. So that threw me off as well.
But I´ve tried it now and it works well with the double tap. Now I don´t need to shut the phone off at least :p
Also, as I live in Sweden, I was sleeping safe and sound :)

This forum rules!/J

Is that “Zoom” magnifying glass enabled by default for other people as well? I’ve never even gone into accessibility settings to mess with any of those settings and the phone was set up as a new iPhone.

By enabled I mean turned on in settings like below:

It must her been default on my phone at least as I've never been into those settings at all.
