    Was taking some photos earlier by utilizing the built in slider from the lock screen (bottom right) and out of nowhere Wallett popped up. Then I was presented with an option to have a 'double press' of the home button from the lock screen open wallet, or go to Settings to turn it off. Nice little shortcut, especially for store loyalty cards that don't have their own specific apps that you can side up from the lock screen.

    Try double pressing the home button next time you go to unlock your phone with Touch ID, and you should get the same initial prompt to keep, or change it.

    I found if you want to access Apple Pay its easiest to hit the side wake button, then double tap. Depending on how quick you double tap it might unlock the phone first instead of activating Apple pay. It's a useful shortcut for sure, but sometimes it misfires.

    When I show off Apple Pay to people, I always let them know that the screen doesn't have to be on when you hold your phone near the NFC reader. I'm sure you and most of us here know that Apple Pay will pull up immediately even if the phone is locked, and the screen is off - as soon as you hold it near an NFC reader.

    The double press home button trick that I just stumbled upon will be (for me at least) extremely useful for using Passbook cards. I use passbook...errr 'Wallet' several times per day. So this definitely saves some time.

    With the phone locked, if you simply double press the home button in the same manner as if you were trying to access the app switcher, Wallet seems to pull up ever single time.

    It's the little things...!
