    I own two iPhones (7 Plus and 7 Plus Red - don't ask..!).
    All too often when I slide up the Control Panel (if that's what its called), if pressing the Flashlight or the Camera, I have to press it two or three times before it comes on or goes off.


    Anyone else experience this? Rather annoying actually. Its not like I don't know how to press an icon

    PS: this might be an OS question, versus specific to the iPhone 6s Plus/7 Plus. But...

    Hmm.. I’ve not experienced such a thing with my iPhone. Have you tried a hard reset?

    Not really. Considering I experience the same thing on both phones, I presumed it was just the 'way I was pressing it'.

    Just weird really...

    I haven’t. Have you tried resetting all settings.

    I might have JUST figured it out.
    A moment ago, I asked my missus to turn on/off her flashlight and camera, on her iPhone 7 Plus (Red). Then I asked her to do the same on my phone, and it worked EACH time.

    It seems I was 'pressing' a little too hard. Just tested 'tapping' the icon and it worked each time. Well, the more you know, and all that...!

    Thanks all
