    Imagine the chaos here if "Press home to unlock" was a thing during the iPhone 4 broken home button days.

    Not really any different than (the default) if you use Touch ID. You still have to press home.

    I beg to differ, I prefer the new lock screen. However, I hate the pressing home to unlock and quickly switched it to rest after getting the GM on the 7th.

    hence why i said for someone who doesn't use passcode

    yea i already knew about that through bgr but doesn't make a difference. the home button should have nothing to do with unlocking the phone, especially since I don't use touch id BUT now I have to just to unlock it easier. It's just a bad move from apple.

    I actually prefer the new lock screen , Gives me more information about my day and more functionality . Am using raise to wake and rest finger to open (which i recommand to everyone!) it makes it easier for me instead of another swipe + TouchID and Camera shortcut are more reliable now. Simply loving iOS 10 .:D
    Thats for iPhone 6s though ... Apple is pushing users to upgrade to the full iOS experience which is a bad move for consumers that dont belong TouchID iPhones but a great intuitive way to unlock the device with iPhones 6s , 6 and 5s.
    And 3D touch is amazing on the new iOS aswell

    I can't imagine not using a passcode. I've seen people do this but never understood why.
    Not saying its wrong, the device is yours to do as you wish, but unless you do nothing with your device a passcode is necessary.

    By default, someone who doesn't have a passcode can press home once for lock screen (or raise to wake) then again for home screen. That's exactly the same as Touch ID. I find it more difficult if you have a passcode but no Touch ID.

    If you change it to the old method in Settings then you're right, it's a bit slower for non-Touch ID users.

    Do you carry cash? It's your responsibility to physically secure your phone.

    Just when I was getting ready to comment on the stability of macOS Sierra GM, I update my Iphone to iOS 10.0.1 and the idiots have removed the slide to open feature. Instead, the simplest way to get to the home screen is to push the homebutton twice and do it at the proper speed. You can't do it too fast or the Iphone will not open. Personally, I'd like the home screen to open directly when I push the side button. If Apple would provide options, rather than cavalierly change things, I'd be much happier.

    Using touch id does make it easier; however, I've found touch id fails depending on the condition of my fingers.

    I never lose it nor does anyone use it other than me so no, it's really not necessary for me to use a passcode to get into my phone each time.

    it's just a bad design

    On iOS 9 i always used to press the home button to wake the display and then just rest my finger on the touchID so for me its one less step to unlock the phone. How did you unlock your phone on iOS 9 ?

    So pressing the home button is unimaginably worse then slide to unlock? I don't get it.

    Previously, you press the lock/unlock button (or home button) to wake the iPhone, then 'slide to unlock'. Now you do either to wake the phone, then 'press the home button' to unlock.

    I must be missing something. I don't get why that's "absolutely terrible".

    This just makes it the same as it was in iOS 9 if you were using Touch ID, right?

    I was hoping if the screen was dark you just had to rest your finger in the button and it would unlock. I know he G5 has that option and it's pretty cool.

    Mostly because people don't like change is what it comes down to. I personally like the new setup.
    --- Post Merged, Sep 14, 2016 ---
    Yes. It basically returns it back to iOS 9 style

    i try to use the home button as little as possible which is why I miss having activator. now it takes 2 presses to unlock. more you use the home button the faster it wears out, which is why on my 5s the home button still felt brand new because of activator

    i have no problems with changes but if it's not broke don't fix it. simple

    I 'never lose' the keys to my house or my car, either. Nor does anyone use them other then me. That said, I don't leave either unlocked (or just leave the keys in the lock) just because its more convenient.

    I don't know why anyone would, but hey, its a free country.

    pretty stupid to compare a phone to a house but it doesn't matter because it's my choice so do you & i'll do me.

    Still not sure how it takes 2 presses to unlock it. When you pick the phone up, it turns on and you press the home button once and you're in since you dont use a passcode.

    Raise To Wake is only a feature for the iPhone 6s ,6s Plus , iPhone SE and Above...He does need to press twice if he doesn't have any of these iPhones.
