    Can you set X to open to home screen or do you still need to swipe up to get to home screen?

    i hope it opens to home screen.

    Swipe up. If it opened straight to the home screen, you would never see your alerts.

    I was thinking about this. Hopefully there's an option similar to "Rest to unlock" under accessibility.

    So now we have the phone and latest iOS does anyone know if theres anyway todo this? I'm disappointed, I don't want to physically touch it if I'm unlocking with my face...it makes no sense

    Just got my iPhone X, and have been using Face ID.

    I thought that there was a setting which allowed for the iPhone to unlock straight to the Home Screen once Face ID unlocked your iPhone (rather than having to swipe to open).

    Is that correct? Or did I mis-remember that feature?

    There is no such setting to do what you describe at this time. You always have to swipe up to go to the home screen after unlocking with Face ID.

    I hope Apple will read these suggestions on their own forum, and will implement this option :)
    I don't get many notifications, and would be great for me.

    You probably read one of the many posts asking why this isn’t an option. I’d like to have it too. I don’t care about reading notifications on the lock screen. Besides, if they did implement it, they could just put a red dot somewhere to indicate unseen notifications, like they do with the Apple Watch.

    Would this be good for you?

    I remember with TouchID, it got so fast that it was easy to blow past your notifications so Apple made a 10.XXX update to remedy that.

    I thought the same thing as you...it'd be nice to right to your home screen upon a FaceID, but then you'd miss your notifications that you missed since opening your phone last time, causing you to have to swipe down to view them or check each app individually for the alert.

    Should be buried in Accessibility (‘cause it’s risky and because notifications) but it should be there.
    Maybe they’re saving it for a major iOS redesign we’ll see in a year or two.

    Also in accessibility they could add “blink to unlock”.

    You're thinking like I am....

    Like Jony said, there are sooooo many more possibilities of the iPhone X. Remember, the computing power of the X is more than some of the new MacBooks. We probably use 20% of the processing power of it currently. I'd like to see a shake head left to advance back on a webpage or other gestures like that.

    .....of course, we'd all look like we have Tourettes or a tic problem in public - shaking our heads and winking to work our iPhones lmao.

    You can swipe up before it unlocks and it will take you directly to the home screen the second it unlocks.

    Tap screen and swipe up immediately (the swipe can even register before the screen is fully on when done right after a Tap To Wake) it will unlock and go to the home screen. No waiting to unlock to swipe.

    This doesn’t answer anything. The OP wants to glance at his phone without a swipe. Basically hands free. Look at phone - boom- home screen.

    I wasn’t talking to the OP. I was talking to someone who said you have to wait until it’s unkocked to swipe up.

    Apple released an update before for Touch ID to skip pressing the home button

    I can see an update in the future for Face ID doing the same thing.

    I am conflicted on this one, I actually use notifications now as they are there and I can see them when the phone unlocks. But it would be faster to just unlock to the home screen. Guess the option would be nice.

    Somewhere I read that in some parts of Asia it was common to keep home button presses at a bare minimum for fear of breaking it (somebody even kept doing it even after the home button became solid state), by using the virtual home button in assistive touch.

    For FaceID there’s little incentive for Apple to add this alternative notification-less unlocking mode...and truth to be told, you have to put your finger there anyway to use the phone afterwards...

    Now if we imagine an eye-movement controlled iphone or a super smart Siri capable of on-the-go as-you-speak navigation of the phone menus, then we’re talking real handsfree even after you unlock...”Siri swipe left AND open that AND click that AND etc.”...then handsfree unlocking would make more sense..

    Probably will come in the future. You have to ease people in with new features such as Face ID and let them get a handle on it before giving them too many options.

    I would not like this. With the attention aware feature of displaying a notification's content it's now quick & easy to take a glance at any notifications so it doesn't look like I'm fiddling with my phone during boring social or business events. Since the X I find myself going to the home screen a lot less.

    Just to say I agree fully, if you don't use notifications this intermediate screen is just a nuisance. I'll be de-activating face-id because it is just a painful annoyance.

    Apple should just add this option.

    So you want the phone to unlock when you look at it to put it in your pocket.
