    I'm really impressed with the new touch ID, back then I used to have to hold my finger on the home button to unlock the device... now when I check the time, a single tap instantly unlocks it. SOOOOOOOO AWESOME

    Yup. Kiss goodbye to Lock Screen for good. Apple need to find a new way for us to peek at the Lock Screen.

    That's a good way to put it. They've enhanced the speed, Siri, and security aspects of the phone.

    Like I wrote in a post I made about how amazing Touch ID v.2 is, my iPhone 6 used to have problems after I had showered because my fingers would prune up, but not with this Touch ID...put my finger on the button and (like you all said before) I am pretty much at my home screen that is how fast it is! Apple did an amazing job improving this!

    :apple:

    Just use a knuckle or non-assigned finger to wake but not unlock.

    Just use the tip of your finger on the edge of the button?

    3D Touch display to turn screen on would be cool - saw someone else suggest it. Not sure what effect it would have on battery.

    It's nice with the watch where you can touch screen to wake.

    Did everyone forget about the sleep/wake button on the side of the phone? :p you could use that if you want to glance at the lock screen...

    It was funny, because earlier today right after I got my 6s+, I felt the same. Asking myself like "wtf is everyone trippin about it's not that much faster"

    After using it for a day, I think it's started to learn the nuances of my fingers, and now...I can do the whole just-tap-the-button-and-it-unlocks-you-don't-even-have-to-hold-your-finger-on-the-button-anymore-omg thing.

    Maybe give it a day and see if it gets any faster...it just might!

    That's what I'm doing. I've assigned my thumbs and index fingers to Touch ID so I'm having to wake it with my middle finger.

    Touch ID is crazy fast. Sometimes I forget that there is any security enabled at all. Apple nailed it with this phone.
