    From the springboard, pull down the Notification Center. Nothing unusual. Now open up an app, like the Facebook app. Pull down the Notification Center, and you will feel two little bumps from the Taptic engine in the phone as you pull it down. The bumps coincide with going over lines in the UI, like little road bumps.

    I've never noticed that before. And yeah, maybe I'm a little buzzed right now.

    It's like that because you can stop at the first "bump" and get spotlight. Keep pulling and you get notifications.

    I have an iPhone 6 so no Taptic Engine but the pull-down-partly-for-spotlight gesture only seems to work when i have no notifications which seems a shame.

    Doesn't even seem all that useful anyways (at least to me it doesn't) One can swipe down and tap the search bar just as quick as pulling down a small bit, holding for a second and releasing. The only benefit I can see is that it's kinda one motion, but doesn't exactly save time.

    If you don't pull all the way down and stop right after the vibration, you get spotlight.
