    If I tap the Home button on my 8 Plus very lightly twice, the screen moves down half way. After it moves down, if I touch the screen it simply restores. It's an interesting feature, but I can't figure out what it's for? Here's screen shots:

    After the double tap:

    Does anyone know what this feature is for? TIA

    It's for one-handed use when you can't quite reach something on the top of the screen. This feature brings the screen down to an area you can reach.

    So lets say you were holding a bag or some books in one hand, and you needed to click on the settings icon, but you just can't quite reach it with your thumb. This feature brings the settings icon (or anything on the top of the screen) down to an area you can reach with your thumb.

    I hope that answered your question.

    This feature actually started when Apple started making the plus model iPhones.
