    How come when I raise my screen and place my thumb down it says "Unlocked" but stays on the home screen until I press?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we only need to touch or thumb print and it would work (without having to press)?

    Thanks

    Yes it has been changed. It unlocks when you touch it but doesn't go to the home screen, allowing you to interact with the lock screen unrestricted and view notifications without accidentally unlocking.

    You can change it back to the old way in Settings.

    Settings, general, accessibility, home button. Done.

    What's the value of it though? Does adding push really benefit anything? Seems like another step to open up the phone.

    So that you can see your lock screen notifications more than likely. In any case, easy to change it to the old method.

    iPhone 6s & 6s Plus users would sometimes miss their notifications due to Touch ID being too fast. This change should help with that.

    What do you do? I don't know if I'm jaded with the old system, but if there's added benefits I'll try to use it haha.

    I'm not sure what you mean by that question.

    Did you put touch back on or leave it as is?

    Ah, I enabled it back as I don't have an issue with reading lock screen notifications with my iPhone 6 (it was a bit more of a common issue for those with 6s line of phones because of the faster TouchID).

    It's because the TouchID is so fast on the 6s that many people complained that they were bypassing the lock screen and their notifications just by pressing home to wake up the phone. So Apple make it that by default the phone wakes when you pick it up, and you have to actually push the home button to get to the home screen. You can change it back to how it was before in settings.

    Same. I have the 6s Plus and even though the feature is touch vs click it doesn't really matter. If I click (with either option selected) it still logs in ridiculously fast.

    My issue was when I rose to wake and touched the home button and it just sat there telling me to push it, that was annoying.thats why I enabled touch to open back on.

    I normally love iOS updates but for some reason I'm not really loving it.

    For example - in texts I now have to hit the text box (within the chat) to start texting. Just another step to start texting.

    Search Accessibility in Settings > Home Button

    It's in Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button, then turn on Rest Finger to Open.
