Since getting my iPhone 6 a few weeks ago I’ve been continuously trying to optimize the configuration of my home screen. The larger screen means that I now have an extra row of icons to fit onto the screen, but the physical size of device means that I can’t actually comfortably reach them.
Since you can’t arbitrarily place icons on your home screen this means the situation is actually worse. I now have to fill in the top row of icons with ‘stuff’ just so that I can easily reach my main icons without stretching.
I poked around at finding a better way and this was my solution. No weird hacks or jailbreak required.
An easy to do “hack” for those who have an issue with getting to the top row of icons on your iPhone 6 Plus.
