    I have seen this some time to time on my iPhone 6+ but I don't know what is this for? Care to explain?

    Thanks

    I don't know if you are trolling, but this is reachability, a feature triggered by double tapping (just tap, don't press) the home button. It was introduced at iPhone 6 keynote. For reaching content with one handed use on the larger models.

    And no.. No split screen or picture in picture.

    You should know that by owning an iPhone 6(+)

    To be fair, I don't think this is a well known/advertised feature.... and coming from a 5s to a 6s, I just thought it was a bug in iOS9 because it's actually annoying, not useful!

    So disable it :)

    Settings -> General -> (I come from Germany, so I dont know whats the Name in English) Accessibility (something like this) -> Reachability (Disable it)

    Note to OP and others who didn't know about it, it works across the system in apps too, not just the home screen. Can be very useful for reaching buttons at the top, even Control Centre.

    No I didn't know that when I got iPhone 6+ seriously. If I knew what this is for I wouldn't post this today!

    Cut him some slack, people. I am sure all of us have activated features we thought were bugs or revolutionary, only to find out later that they were already common knowledge.

    Alright Sir Castic! Like I said, considering 99.99% of iPhone users won't have sat through two hours of marketing hyperbole that is an Apple Keynote, I don't think this is well known/advertised 'feature'. And if anyone skipped the 6 or 6+ it could easily be interpreted as a bug.

    Sorry. But the response you got is typical around here these days. Frustrating, to say the least.

    If I learn something new every day I'm happy.

    Every day's a School Day.

    Now you can pass the knowledge on if and when you come across something similar.
