    Is it just me or does it do nothing? I rest my finger on the lock screen (with and without Touch ID enabled) and the screen on, and resting does nothing.

    What?

    In iOS 10, your (Touch ID enabled) device is unlocked when you rest your finger on the sensor. It does not "go to the Home Screen" until you press the Home Button, just like it does everywhere else in the OS.

    My experience using it makes my phone go home immediately when unlocking with the home button on my 6s. The "too fast to see notifications" bug Apple talked about when they showed the new unlock, raise to wake feature. Again, thats what my device is doing with this option enabled.

    No.
    And its not "pressing to unlock" and never was. Unlocking is the silent action that occurs by resting your finger on the sensor.

    You don't press to unlock. You press to go to the Home Screen.

    Same here. Toggle on our off, resting my finger just makes the top of the lock screen say "Unlocked" but doesn't actually bring me to springboard.

    Back on iOS 9, I didn't even have to press to go to the home screen. If the screen was lit up for any reason, I could rest my finger on the home button and the phone would unlock and go directly to my home screen. This would work perfect now in combination with the raise to wake but they added that feature and took the old feature away.

    That's actually the most clear explanation of how it works I've seen.

    Resting your thumb on the button makes it unlock such that you can use widgets and interact with them. You still need to unlock normally if you tap on content in the widget- it will ask you to. Resting just unlocks the phone in advance to interact with the widgets.

    Pressing the home button then goes to the home screen (or unlocks and goes to the home screen)

    Do you not understand that "Unlock" and "Go to Home Screen" are two completely different things?

    They took nothing away. They improved what was a flawed implementation in iOS 9.

    Resting my finger does that if I have the setting enabled or not.

    Resting your finger does what? Can you please explain what you're talking about instead of just acting like a customer?

    I can assure you that "resting your finger on the sensor" does NOT "bring to you the Home Screen", since that is exactly what it is NOT intended to do in iOS 10.

    Yes. Yes I do. Do you not understand that I was explaining that with the toggle in accessibility on or off, the behavior in b2 is the same?

    I'm using Beta 2. Just like I used Beta 1.

    Nothing has changed (except the icon in the status bar).

    Raise to Wake turns on your display.

    Resting your finger on the sensor Unlocks the device.

    Pressing the Home Button takes you Home.

    If you are doing anything else, like pressing the home button to wake your display, I don't want to hear it.

    I really have no idea where you are coming from, other than some deep rooted aggression issues. You do realize this entire thread is about a specific accessibility toggle?

    Actually they did. More and more phones are adding a touch sensor to wake the phone, Apple had it half right by allowing you to touch the home button to bring you to your home screen when the screen would light up for a notification but now that no longer works. It wasn't only in iOS 9 either, from the time I bought my iPhone 5S up until iOS 10 Beta 1 with my iPhone 6S, I could touch the home button and get taken to my home screen if the screen was lit up for a notification.

    No it isn't.
    --- Post Merged, Jul 5, 2016 ---
    No, that wasn't worth the tradeoff for the much better implementation in iOS 10. This is how it always should have been.

    Could not care less about the weak argument that "if" the phone was already lit up "all" you had to do was rest instead of press. I mean, seriously?

    In ios9 you didn't have home screen widgets that required the phone to be unlocked to grant full access. This new unlock method does exactly what it needs to. It unlocks the phone and makes private information available via the widgets.

    So, just because you could care less for that feature means that I should care less. Noted.

    I could care less that my widgets can now be accessed from the home-screen and that I have more time to look at them. Whoop dee do. They added raise to wake, so that we can view the notifications and widgets without going to the home screen, what is the problem with being able to just touch the sensor to go ahead and go to the home screen? We used to have to press the home button to wake the screen, now, we wouldn't have to press it at all. Maybe that's too much for you though?

    In iOS10 you have to hard press home button twice.

    - Hard press to wake up
    - rest finger to unlock
    - Hard press to go to the homescreen
