Slide to unlock back or at least a way to lock the iPhone when you don't use passcodes or Touch ID so it doesn't accidently get unlocked in your pocket. I have never used passcodes and don't plan on starting now.

Really? Apple DOES provide you a way to have your phone not be accidentally unlocked in your pocket. It's your choice whether or not you want to use it, but just like the headphone jack, slide to unlock is not returning.

Slide to unlock was that way, a more secure way of doing it than a button press.

No it does not provide it like they used too. Like Steve Jobs said back in 2007 the slide to unlock is there to keep you from pushing randomn buttons. Even when they introduce Touch ID, you still had the slide to unlock as a safety feature to keep from pushing buttons. Now they at forcing you to put a passcode on your phone to keep from accidently unlocking while in your pocket. And the headphone is an entirely different story and I'm not going there

If you have an iPhone with TouchID, how is that harder to perform than Slide to Unlock? You literally place your designated finger or thumb on the home button and viola.

Seriously don't understand how people are that stubborn.

If you're activating TouchID while your phone is in your pocket, that's some miracle.

TouchID and Passcode features are there for security and not for unintentional unlocks, which is what the slide to unlock was there for. Sure, TouchID and Passcode can help with unintentional unlocks, but that's not their actual purpose. While to someone hat uses TouchID or a Passcode it basically of no real difference (as it's all kind of hidden behind it), for those that don't use it there's certainly a difference, and simply saying well a different feature like TouchID or Passcode will help with that doesn't change the fact that the actual feature that was there for that (slide to unlock) isn't there anymore.

I do not use Touch ID and don't want to use it because i don't want or need a passcode on my phone. With the slide to unlock gone, all you have to do is press the home button which can be done with it in your pocket

Look, guys, I have TouchID on my 6S and guess what -- I have never once inadvertently unlocked my phone, accidentally placed a call, texted an ex, or any other doomsday scenario you could come up with. You want to know the best part? It's faster, easier, AND safer than Slide to Unlock. It's 2016, get with the program.

Like I said, it's of no real difference to you based on how you use your devices, that doesn't mean that it's actually of no difference and that your use of the device (and the use of the device by many others) is somehow the "right" one and others are doing it "wrong". (Kind of like the whole "you're holding it wrong" thing with the iPhone 4 antenna design.)

The ability to turn off the new iMessages "features" like the crayon-scribbling, fireworks, balloons, coloring book stickers, and all the other similar additions.
It's already there. Turn on Reduce Motion.

No, it's nothing like "You're holding it wrong" and here's why:

You two complain that Slide to Unlock is gone, but yet there's literally a faster, more efficient and comically more secure way to "unlock" your phone that requires absolutely no sliding, just a finger or thumb!

Please, explain to me how TouchID is so much more of a burden to you or anyone than slide to unlock was, I'll wait.

If you're truly worried about all those accidental unlocks that you're sure are bound to happen, how is TouchID inconveniencing you more than slide to unlock was, I'd love to know.

That only stops the effects, not the other things mentioned.
Plus, I can't prevent those effects showing up in messages received. I also can't remove the icons in the bar to the left of the text box in message - the one that looks like a heart and the one that opens the messages apps.

I don't know about any borden or anything else, but it's not the same thing, and that's what I was talking about. But off the top of my head, perhaps someone wants their device to be available to multiple people and be able to access it with whatever finger they might feel like or even not a finger if they feel like it--all of that is available before iOS 10 without sacrificing the extra sturdiness of being able to slide to unlock vs. a simple button press that is much easier to happen in a pocket or a purse/bag.

In any case, this thread isn't really about this as it's about a wishlist, so no point of really derailing it further with this, especially when there are multiple dedicated threads specifically dealing with the whole "unlock" aspect of it all.

That's great for people that actually use Touch ID. I do not use it and would like a way to keep from accidently unlocking like the slide to unlock prevented. I shouldn't be forced to use Touch ID.

Forced? It's LITERALLY what you want in an easier, more secure, convenient technological package and you're against this why? My best guess is you haven't even tried it.

You DO realize you can add multiple finger/thumb prints to TouchID, right? All of your reasons still don't explain why somebody like yourself wouldn't want literally the same functionality of slide to unlock, but more secure. If your bottom line goal is to reduce unwanted unlocks, then TouchID is the endgame.

It's not literally the same functionality, as explained before. And having multiple people access the device with whatever fingers or even without fingers doesn't really account for TouchID being able to register just 5 fingers. But like I said, not really what this thread is about.
