One of the changes in iOS 10 is the absence of “slide-to-unlock”: Now, to unlock your iPhone now, you will have to physically press the Home button, often making it more awkward to make one of the operations that we repeat several times during the day. Fortunately, in the iOS 10 settings app,  there is an option that allows you to unlock the iPhone simply by putting your finger.

Who has an iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and, in the future, iPhone 7, users benefit from the “Raise to wake” function and make it less cumbersome unlocking the device. In practice, these devices with iOS 10 automatically activates the display when the iPhone is lifted, then the user can simply click once on the Home button to unlock the iPhone. However, those who have an iPhone 6, 6 Plus or 5s must first activate the display by clicking the Home button or the Sleep button, and then press the Home button to unlock your device.

To avoid having to physically click the Home button, you can activate a special option:

  • Go to Settings
  • Click General > Accessibility
  • Below, select Home Button
  • Now activate “Rest Finger to Open toggle”

By activating this option, those who have an iPhone 7, 6s and 6s Plus will only have to pick up the phone and place your finger on the Home button; those who have an iPhone 6, 6 Plus or 5s will have to click only once on the Home button, and put your finger to unlock (avoiding having to click two different times on the Home button). Only those who have an iPhone 5 will be forced to double-click the Home button, since this device does not integrate the Touch ID.
