    I've had my 5s for over a week now and a few things are annoying me. I'm hoping I can change some settings to resolve them.
    1- on Android if I start dialing a number it will search the numbers I type and also the contacts from the letters within the dialler (sort of a t9 input from the old days). I can't seem to do this
    2- if I don't open an app from a notification it doesnt clear the notification. Also, to clear all notifications I have to tap the x then "clear". That's an extra unnecessary step
    3- if I press the home button from an app that's in a folder it only returns to the folder and not home screen
    4- some apps have swipe to the right to go back but not all. That's so annoying
    Any work arounds?

    1. Nope. You can't do that.
    2. Yep. That's how it works.

    4. Talk to the app developer.

    Sounds like Android might be your OS. None of the things you listed can be changed unfortunately. Hopefully you do find things you prefer though.

    I loved the notification shade in the Androids I've used, but oddly I hardly ever use it on my iPhone. After a year and a half of getting used to iOS, I almost always use the Lock Screen instead to review, open and dismiss notifications. Otherwise, once on a Home screen, I just glance at Badges to see what I need to check.

    It wasn't a conscious decision, it's just the usage pattern that evolved over time for me.

    Going to give ios another try. This time I picked up a 64gb 6s plus for a really good price that's in mint condition. I'm hoping ios will be more likeable now that I'm on a decent size screen. Just waiting for the network unlock code to come through now so I can insert my sim and use it as my daily driver. Fingers crossed for this time around

    I like my 6s Plus. I plan to keep it at least until next year. Having to tap X, then Clear, on notifications is a safety net in case someone taps the X by mistake. That doesn't bother me any. Only takes a fraction of a second. Enjoy your 6s Plus.

    Go to Settings > Notifications > iMessage and disable Show on Lock Screen

    Thank you. If possible id like to see notifications on the lock screen, just not have the screen automatically turn itself on as soon as one comes through

    Unfortunately it's either / or.
    You can always swipe down to open Notification Center.

    I set most of my notifications to show on the notification center. Only a few, like weather, show on the lock screen. That eliminates the constant phone waking.

    Got my 6s plus unlocked today so using as my daily driver now. When I do a backup to my pc, is it possible for it to save all passwords so I don't have to log in to everything again if I ever do a wipe and restore?

    Yes, simply enable encrypted syncing and define a password and you're good to go.
