I personally think having to swipe up every time when you unlock your phone with face ID is a bit too much, maybe my opinion will change when my phone gets here but having to slide up every time will take longer than just tapping my finger into the Touch ID and going right to home.

Opnions?

How would you read lock screen notifications?? Th swipe makes perfect sense. Or if you had a confidential app/info on screen and just lock it, when you look at it it will auto open that app...

It would unlock to lock screen and notifications if there are any. If there are none it would go straight to home screen. Thats how I would program it.

Not sure how your phone works but I always have notifications, so if i used your method, it would alway require a swipe :p

Doesn’t the iPhone X use ‘raise to wake’? Raising the phone shows you your notifications on the lock screen.

Yes but then when you look at it it will unlock to home screen if they removed the swipe option lol

Plus you need to unlock phone to show notifications as a security thing they added (unless I'm mistaken).

It will take exactly the same time as you’re still touching the phone. The only difference is you’re swiping instead of pushing the Touch ID.

So you are saying:- With any other iPhone, when anyone should raise your iPhone it will wake and show them your notifications. The iPhone X on the other hand will not wake unless it see’s the correct face? If that is true that’s great. Only you get to see the notifications, everyone else see’s a blank screen on raise to wake.

Whilst I like the simplicity of just picking up your phone to see your notifications, it’s always bugged me that anyone can see my notifications on raise to wake.
If this remains a blank screen for everyone else, I would buy the iPhone X just for that alone.

It’s one simple finger interaction to unlock, just as it was on the first iPhone, just as it is on my current 6s+.
I can’t see there being a difference.

Clear them on your apple watch first.

Haha are you for real :D

Yes but picture if your phone was laying down on a table and you didn't use a case. You'd have to pickup the phone each time like those androids with finger sensor on the back. Without sliding the whole phone when you swipe up, it would be nice to look at the screen and force touch to open.

(Just my opinion) I'm fine with what ever way they keep it.

I think it will work without you having to look at straight. This has been discussed many times.

Guys - it's an either/or. Make it user customizable to disable the swipe or not. There's many of us that don't give a rats ass about the notifications on the lock screen. Let us change the device behaviour to unlock without a second action. The rest of you can leave it at the default value.

Heh...and maybe you could just leave one eye closed? ;)

It won't be a blank screen, the preview will be hidden until you look at it.

After unlocking, if you don’t use Siri to open apps, you still need to tap the screen to do what you want to do. Swiping up merely puts your thumb/finger on the screen immediately before you do so.

In a day or two I probably won’t even notice a difference.

I am sure we’d get accustomed to the new finger gestures in no time :);

-slide from the bar upwards for the home page
-slide upwards slightly to the mid-section for app multitasking
-slide from the top of the screen downwards for notifications
-slide from the top right corner downwards for the controls

amongst others....

I can appreciate where the OP is coming from - there are many who used the accessibility option in iOS “rest finger to open” since iOS 10 so that you life the phone for the screen to light up and your finger being on the home button will cause it to go to the home screen. Without this setting enabled in accessibility, you have to press the home button after the lock screen is showing. The big unknown right now would be if there’s a similar option in accessibility for Face ID.

I have this setting enabled myself - but I do like seeing the lock screen. I usually lift the phone to wake it, and then touch the home button to go to the home screen. I’m not worried about the X in this regard myself. I’ll likely lift the screen to see the lock screen, and then do the quick slide up to go home. Or if I want to get there quickly, I’ll start the gesture of the short slide up as I’m lifting the phone (you can do that as Face ID authenticates).

iOS 11 and previous iPhones work similar when it comes to notifications. The way my settings are right now is that if I don't place my finger to unlock, the notifications don't show anything but "Notification" on the lock screen. As soon as I place my finger on the home button and unlock I get to see all the previews of the notifications. Now this will be even sweeter with face ID when all I will have to do is look at it.

For those who want to see lock screen info, just swipe down after it auto-logs you in. That wouldn’t be any additional swipes. But for those of us who don’t care about the lock screen, it seems like a real delay - pick up phone, look at it, wait for the lock icon to disappear, then swipe up. As opposed to iPhone 7, where you pick it up with your thumb on the home button pressing it, and it’s already fully logged in And at the home screen by the time you see the screen.

The way Apple designed this new phone’s interaction, it’s like the lock screen is the most important thing on the phone, forcing everyone to wait and see it before they can swipe to go to the home screen. But I have an Apple Watch for that data, I don’t need a lock screen because all notifications show up on my wrist.
