Lg G8 got OS update, can no longer hide navigation bar

My phone, which is apparently "Universally Unlocked" and running on Sprint's network just got an OS update..... a lot of things look different, but the main thing that struck me is that I seem to no longer be able to hide the navigation bar. I find it pretty annoying when I want to use an app in full screen like I used to be able to do and now they take up less of the screen because the bar is in the way. Before I could just swipe up to bring up the bar, but all options and icons to do that seem to be gone. Anyone know if there is some option anywhere to have it hide again? Pretty ridiculous to just remove the ability to hide the bar in an update.

    I got the update, and my problem is the battery life has suddenly decreased, and the battery temperature keeps rising... this is very annoying!
    Are you having this problem too?

    We are sorry to hear that. What is the model number of your phone and what OS is it currently running?
