    Why wouldn’t they give us the option to enable getting to home screen without swiping up function. I mean I know it would mess with notifications but why would that matter enough. Someone on here must know why it isn’t an option and will it ever be?

    I am afraid you are batting zero. . . . no one knows but Apple.

    Do not think I would want this feature.

    If you know the answer already (e.g. ability to read notifications without unlocking), then why ask question? The benefit of FaceID is that you (and only YOU) can read/answer the notification without unlocking.

    Cause I bet most people don’t even have that on. Unless you’re cheating on ur spouse or a drug dealer. Lol I don’t use it and never have. So my question is why not have the “option” to enable it for people that don’t care about notifications. Doesn’t have to be a requirement but an option for people who want it. Swiping up is getting to be a pain and doesn’t register every time. And when Face ID doesn’t register all the time as well it becomes a pain.

    Ya I’m sure a lot wouldn’t want it but some would. Just would be great as an option not a requirement.

    Apple is not about giving choices, esp when the choice kinda defeats the purpose of FaceID.

    As for your FaceID, you need to re-do it. And add Alternate FaceID with your phone on your desk and registering it.

    I didn’t mean skip Face ID all
    Together. Just the swiping up part. You should be able to wake it up, look at it. Then it go straight to home screen without swiping up. One action to home screen like Touch ID

    But I guess you’re right, Apple isn’t about giving choices. Sucks

    Don’t forget if you go straight to home screen, then you may unlock your phone un-intentionally and then that creates privacy issue. The swiping up requirement means that YOU (and only you) REALLY want to unlock phone and not accidental.

    With TouchID, you HAVE to touch the button and PRESS to unlock...again, requiring deliberate action to unlock.

    And given that FaceID in future will allow you to unlock at various angles (already capable of that today), the last thing you want is your phone unlocking when you are not aware.

    Whether some, many, most, or none want this ability....and regardless if it being an option would be beneficial, asking these types of questions on a forum of tech enthusiasts is pointless. We don't know what Apple will, or will not do, anymore than you do. Apple will announce to you what they plan to incorporate on their terms and no one here is privy to that information.

    I believe that is the default behavior, so I bet most people actually have it that way.

    Why do people keep requesting this. How would you see your notifications? Dumb idea when you actually think about it.

    Not to be "that guy" but you have the choice not to buy their products. I don't mind swiping up, it's not a deal breaker for me, I may not always want to go to my home screen. If I pick up my phone it may be to check if there's any missed notifications or even just to check the time.

    Ya I get that. For me, I don’t care. if attention is turned on then I have to look at it and if I am doing that no one else will have it unless I have a gun to my face. For me, and I’m sure for a lot of others it would be better to reduce the action while compromising some security

    Leaks happen all the time my man. We don’t know who is really who on here.

    Again I don’t care about notifications so yes that would be sacrifice. But again just asking why it’s not an option. Not everybody likes it the same ways.

    I wouldn't go as far as this feature would be "dumb", but it would be a poor user experience and ruin iOS notification.

    Fast TouchID had a similar problem and it was honestly not very good.

    Not true. With touch ID you don’t have to PRESS

    Maybe people keep requesting this because it's something we want and just because you don't doesn't make it a dumb idea. I would just like the option.

    It’s a security feature so apple would never remove it, and you’ll be the first to complain when you get up from somewhere and forget to pick up your phone leaving it unlocked because it scanned your face while getting up for example.

    Maybe the reason Apple hasn't and probably won't implement it is the multitude of problems we have highlighted in this thread.

    It seems like something you want but most of us here are trying to tell you that it's not something you really want.

    If people have raise to wake on (I assume most do now) and you just want to look at your notifications, and your phone is automatically unlocked, it would be frustrating. That is probably why. Even if you have it enabled and this occurs, you'd have to swipe from the top to bottom to view them after the phone unlocks, which is more difficult than swiping from the bottom to top to unlock your phone from the lock screen.

    That's my perspective, anyways.

    I don’t know why they don’t put it as an option, and allow us to tweak it.

    Nobody can tell another person it’s something they don’t want. That’s like telling me I don’t want that fat girl at the bar but in reality, she is the easiest to take home and I do it anyways, cause it’s my choice.Come on!

    Except that's literally what Apple does all the time. 9/10 times they're right.

    9/10 they do what they want regardless yes. And when you got Billions in the bank. I guess you don’t really give a **** what others want.

    Look man, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know what you're requesting is a bad experience which breaks the notification functionality on the device.

    They're not going to break their product.

    Have a good one.
