Swipe navigation

With the new OS Update this morning, I can revert back to the swipe navigation from button navigation, however, there's interference with the Wallet widget at the bottom.  So I updated the wallet widget to only be accessible on the lock screen (not ideal).  The open app navigation is still unusable though.  I can get it to open maybe once every 20 tries.  I changed the sensitivity but it only impacts the edges, not the bottom.  I don't need two back buttons.  I need a single swipe gesture for back, a single swipe gesture for home (that doesn't interfere with the wallet), and a single swipe for open apps.  Ideally, all upwards gestures, because the side swipe gestures interfere with other app functionalities.  For example, I can't use the sliding functionality on my bank app anymore because it's misread as nav back.  This is absolutely dreadful and I hate it.  Please go back to the initial navigation experience.  Whoever approved of this design needs to be fired.
