    Here is a real struggle, every time when I was just trying to lit the screen up and check the time or new notification it quickly unlocked and went into the home screen... (my thumb for the fingerprint and my thumb to push the button -_-). I disabled "rise to wake" because I thought its a battery drain feature.

    Any clue???

    Just press the power button instead of the home button.

    Use the lock button on the side. :)

    Use the sleep/wake button on the right side for that... or just pick up your iPhone. iOS 10 now knows when you lift your iPhone and displays the time & date

    Raise to wake might not be as big of a drain as you think. When you press the home button to view your screen it stays on for 7 seconds. While using raise to wake to view your screen, the screen only stays on for 2 seconds. In the long run, raise to wake probably saves more battery.

    Or simply don't press any button with the raise to wake function.

    This is how I resolved it. I get it out of my pocket if I think there's something i dont want to miss, and is waiting for me. Then I squeeze for the power button, to my dislike, and read it.. and put phone away again when I am done replying to it.

    Raise to wake hasn't noticeably impacted my iPhone SE's battery life at all.

    If you don't want to look at anymore than the lock screen JUST have it on Raise to Wake and DON'T put your finger or thumb on the Home Button.

    Use the tip of your finger or finger nail to press the home button

    But the screen is black once you pick up the phone. Resting requires a click too..

    You have to have RAISE TO WAKE toggled on. You'll find it in Display & Brightness

    NO, it's in answer to your comment. With Raise to Wake toggled ON, it does just that, it wakes it to the Lock Screen - no button touching or pushing.

    IF you want to go past that THEN you need the button and Touch ID
