    With the lighting speed of the iPhone 6S Touch ID reader, there is more reason now than ever for the ability to turn on the display by touching it directly. I know some Androids have been doing this for awhile, I believe by double tapping on the display. I think the most obvious solution would be to 3D Touch "peek" to light up the display. If/when Apple removes the home button entirely and allows Touch ID to be implemented directly on the display then perhaps Apple would allow a 3D "peek" to light the display and a "pop" to unlock.

    It's a feature that Apple is holding for future models. It will happen.

    I had double tap to wake on my Nokia Lumias and loved it. It's really far more useful than live photos.

    Considering how it's a software feature, it could easily be a iOS 9.x or iOS 10 thing.

    Or press the home button with a finger not saved in Touch ID.

    These are good workarounds at the moment, but I hope you don't intend them as valid reasons for Apple NOT to implement this. Screen tap would be much more convenient
