I have been encountering a weird issue since I updated the phone 3 days ago. Any time I try to open an app, the screen will first go black and then when I press the home button to turn the screen back on, it will jump to the home screen. I cannot open an app and stay in the app without having a blank/black screen. Does anyone else notice this?

I'm not sure if this will be fixed in a patch or if I should consider downgrading to iOS 8.4. It's not a deal breaker, but I would like to be able to open apps without being shown a blank screen.

UPDATE: I resolved the issue by performing a soft reset on the phone. For anyone who doesn't know, a soft reset is turning the phone off and on.

I had to do the same reset, with an iPad after the iSO9 update.
