Red Dot Moving with Finger Occassionally on iPhone
June 26, 2015 1:56 PM   Subscribe

Suddenly, when I use my finger on my iPhone (in some circumstances, but not others, and confusingly timed), a red dot shows up. I don't think I did anything to make this happen, but it happens fairly frequently. I've tried to google but can't find an answer on point. Thanks!

Where is the dot? Is it in the same place every time? Does it move with your fingers? Does it show up in screen-shots? (Press the power and home buttons simultaneously to take a screenshot; it'll be added to your photos)

Response by poster: It moves with my fingers! For example, in Lightroom right now. But sometimes not, in the same location. I've had the Lightroom app on my iPhone for a year or so, and it just started this yesterday.

Might be one of the accessibility features? Check the settings in there (under General>Accessibility) to see if anything is turned on.

Adobe's documentation seems to indicate it does this when the app is in presentation mode.

Response by poster: Weird. It seems to have gone away. I'm on mac, and no presentation . . . I will report back if I get clarity!

On a mac? I thought you said this was an iPhone
