RE: To be fair
Besides, these are optional things. You don't have to perform them to use iOS, ever. Yes, if you know how to do it it will probably make operating your iOS more convenient, but it's not mandatory.
That's the problem of it. It happens accidentally all the time. I've had to help COUNTLESS people whose applications had suddenly moved around, whose homescreen wouldn't stop jiggling, whose applications were suddenly small and in a square, who didn't know how to remove shit, and so on.
