    Just wondering if there is any update on the way this works or not, but I really want to use Apple Pay but I do not want to use a passcode or touch id to unlock my phone.

    Because I think Apple Pay looks pretty cool to use.

    I'm guessing bunnicula was asking why you don't want to use Touch ID or a passcode to unlocking your iPhone.

    No, a passcode is required to entangle your information and fingerprint.

    Have you tried out Touch ID on your 6 for a while? It's really fast on my 6. Do you realize that you can just wakeup your iPhone with the home button and just leave you finger on it for another second (or less) and you're in?

    This, exactly.

    It's absolutely faster than the traditional swipe to unlock. This is my first device with Touch ID, and I'll admit I'm pretty impressed at how quick and accurate it is. I'm one who usually didn't use a password before because it was a nuisance. Now it's incredibly easy.

    I never unlock my phone with anything besides Touch ID. It feels like a huge bother when I restart the phone and have to slide to unlock with a code.

    Yes but every time I get a text from the lock screen I can't just slide to respond I always have to enter something, it's really annoying/inconvenient on top of the fact I don't want my phone locked from others.

    Yup, at first I never use Touch ID with my iPhone 5S because it is gimmick until last month I decided to give it a try...WOW that is very fast then traditional swipe to unlock! Touch ID is cool! :apple:

    I use quick reply from the lock screen all the time, it doesn't require you to unlock the phone.

    Yep. Settings > Touch ID and Passcode > Reply with Message. Then, when you have a message on the lock screen just swipe left on it and tap Reply.

    That's what quick reply is for.

    And you don't mind if a thief has no delays accessing all of your credit cards to make purchases?

    Touch ID is super fast. I value my info more than replying to a text faster than the time it takes to touch my home button.

    ----------

    Why would you want it unlocked with credit cards accessible for use? That's just...unusual.

    Quick reply?

    The way I had it setup I had to enter something to just respond to a text. No thanks, besides I don't want to lock my phone.

    ----------

    I'm not going to ruin my experience because of some possibility of a thief. The thief has my phone, the info on my phone is the least of my worries.

    My point was meaning I could use Apple Pay and have to use touchid for THAT but not for unlock.

    The point is I still don't want my phone locked out of access for other people too. If someone finds my phone if I theoretically lose it, I'd PREFER them to access my phonebook and call someone I know to tell them they found my phone. Honest people do exist, I've found phones and done the exact same thing.

    Give up man. It ain't gonna happen. Either use your fingerprint, or don't use ApplePay. Done.

    Do you think any of us are gonna make it happen? I don't think so. Complain to Apple if you don't like it.

    Apple will not give up the security.

    But that's what Find My iPhone's Lost Mode is for. You can put a "If found call XXX" message on the lock screen. Also, if you have your Medical ID set to show up on the emergency pane of the lock screen, someone could call one of your emergency contacts.

    Touching the home button for a second ruins the experience?

    Call me security-obsessed, but I'm more concerned about the info contained on my phone than the device itself. The device is very easily replaced.

    This thread is giving me a strong sense of deja vu. OP, did you start another thread with this exact subject? Your arguments for keeping your phone unlocked seem very familiar to me.

    Yes, and?
    Why is this you, some random anonymous user on the internet, care about?

    There's a reason why I put "yet" at the end of the topic title.
