    Slide to open is gone. There are two small settings which will make the unlocking interaction a bit more familiar though:
    1. Disable "Raise to Wake" in Settings>Display & Brightness
    2. Disable "Click to Unlock" in Settings>General>Accessibility>Home Button

    I think it's their worst move yet & not practical for those who don't use passcodes. I had to enable mine just to make the phone easier to unlock? ridiculous

    Good. Then it's probably doing what it's supposed to. Not having such a device passcode protected is, in most cases, borderline insane in this day and age.

    I would disagree, but each to his own.

    Apple though, is known for catering en masse in lieu of individual customization at the cost of clarity. Translation, if it's good for the majority, the minority will have to suck it up. This is one such case, it would appear.

    Why is it impractical? Doesn't it just take a press of the home button to unlock now instead of a swipe?

    I stared to use passcode/touch ID because of this. Otherwise I'm fine but I think force touching a notification and then pressing it again to get to that app and THEN using Touch ID to get to the app from lock screen is terrible.

    Without password in iOS 9 all I had to do was swipe a notification and it would take me to that app, much easier.

    Edit: forgot to say that "raise to wake" was a positive surprise. It seems to work very well.

    You can still swipe on the lock screen notifications.

    I have a child with a developmental disability. She uses an iPad, not an iPhone, but she cannot enter a passcode to unlock it.

    A passcode isn't something that's necessary.

    I'm assuming you use Assistive Touch in the Accessibility menu?

    It's LESS actions required to unlock an iPhone, and people complain.

    As I've said before, those that use Touch ID probably didn't even notice. And those that use a passcode instead, will find it easier.
    The only people that are complaining are those that have no passcode and zero desire to adapt.

    It's a better change that takes less actions to unlock. Those threads are just funny to read.

    Well, not necessarily less, but about the same (aside from perhaps those the use a Smart Cover on an iPad where it might take an extra action now).

    No passcode=Press home, press home.

    Old way=press home, remove finger, move to screen, swipe.

    Old way with Passcode=press home, remove finger, move to screen, swipe, enter passcode.


    Old way with Touch ID=press home.
    New way with Touch ID=press home.

    I had this exact argument with several people on another thread. Amazing that you can give people TouchID that literally replaces sliding your finger across the surface of a device with resting it on a single area and they'll still complain.

    It's also fun when somebody says "Well only I use my device and I never lose it, so why do I need to protect it?" I take great care of my devices and don't lose things too often either but the one time you do, you'll be thankful there's TouchID / a passcode set up on it.

    It's "interesting" how someone's perception of whether or not someone else should or shouldn't be using a passcode or something like that has anything to do with this, or really with anything at all when it comes to people making their own decisions for themselves based on what works for them (for whatever reason).
