    The speed of the new Touch ID is truly incredible. If I do a quick click on the home button the phone unlocked instantly every time. No more leaving my finger there for a second or two. One downside is it's not impossible to click the home button quickly just to turn the screen on and see your notifications. Guess I'll need to start using the power button to do that.

    I cannot believe how fast Touch ID is. It's so fast that having a live photo as a lock screen is useless because you literally can't click the home button and then only go to lock screen, it unlocks instantously. I usually only click the home button to check my lock screen, guess I will have to use the lock button from now on.

    Its ridiculous, so much for using the home button to wake up the screen

    Was going to post the same thing. At first it was unlocking and opening so fast that I thought my lock code was turned off. The screen was opening the instant I touched the home button.

    You can do it. You either have to deliberately pull your finger away fast or use an odd part of your finger like up by the nail. Or perhaps you leave one finger out of Touch ID and use it solely to check notifications. It's would be your Notification finger. :rolleyes:

    Methinks this will be the last iPhone with a physical home button.

    I look forward to that. Would be nice to have a smooth piece of glass all the way across. We will see what happens.

    I'm hoping for some implementation of force touch on the screen to wake the device for notification checking. I doubt it'll happen as the power button is sufficient but t'would be nice.

    Ha - pretty clever. I never thought about that, but it's such an obvious solution.

    I think it will happen soon. This year's 6S/6S+ 3D touch is the "beta test" for apple to move to a home button-less iPhone in the near future. If not for the 2016 model, definitely for the 2017 model.

    Only if they abandon the S cycle, which, with all the new upgrade plans, is quite possible. Otherwise, I'd say 2016 or 2018.

    It's definitely an option, just often not as condiment especially with one hand when the phone is lying down for example.
