One of the things many people are talking about is how with the iPhone X it might be a bit slower to get to the home screen in comparison to TouchID iPhones. Apple purposely wants you to see the lock screen on the iPhone X before you go to the home screen because if it would unlock and go directly to the home screen you might miss notifications. So why don't they solve it like this: 1 Notifications on the lock screen Raise to wake / Tap screen / Tap side button FaceID unlocks phone Stay on lock screen to read notifications or swipe up to go to the home screen 2 No notifications on the lock screen Raise to wake / Tap screen / Tap side button FaceID unlocks phone and automatically goes to the home screen In my opinion the lock screen is not of much use when there are no notifications there. You can see the time on the home screen, you can start the camera from the home screen, you can do much more interaction with your phone from the home screen, etc, so why not skip it automatically. I think this would be a very nice addition to the FaceID setting to turn on or off, so people who are turning it on would know why it sometimes would and sometimes wouldn't show the lock screen. What do you think? I personally would prefer this over an option to always bypass the lock screen.
