    I wander what browsing the web on the X will look like now and how many times one would close the browser accidentally by swiping up (you'd be doing the same gesture to advance the page in your browser). Now you have to hold the phone differently just so your thumb doesn't touch the bottom? That would be SO annoying if you kept closing the browser ...

    How many times when you are swiping up in Safari have you accidentally opened control center? It’s the same gesture so I don’t think it will be a problem.

    Apple employees have been using it for months now, so I think it'll be fine. Like the other poster said, it's not like you open CC too often accidentally.

    Also, the swipe up to go home will have to start even lower than the current control center swipe up, since there is no bottom bezel. At least for me, its not within natural swiping range, its more of a reach to go that low.

    This won't be an issue since the home gesture is even further down than the bottom of the screen right now.
