Button sits behind navigation bar

Hi! I've manually placed my button just as Ben did in the video and I also have the same code, with alignParentBottom and alignParentLeft all set to true, but it appears behind the black navigation bar. Could someone give me a solution and explain me why this happens? Thank you!

Also having this issue, but like Sean when I run the app, the button is in the correct place. Did you find a solution or why this is happening?

I'm having this issue in the design view as well. However, when I run the app in the device simulator the button properly appears above the navigation bar, a bit confusing.
