Entire Lock screen experience in iOS 10 has been redesigned. Apple not only eliminate the “Slide to Unlock” feature, but also changes the unlocking interaction on its most recent devices.
We can see there are so much improvement on the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, and 7 Plus which features a new “Raise to Wake” that automatically activates the screen of the iPhone. This feature changes the unlocking interaction, that requires a physical button press to open the iPhone to the Home button. We can see in iOS 9, in which there is no actual button press was required, as unlocking the iPhone was done just by touching the Touch ID button.
The change to the iPhone unlocking system has been unsetting for some users. Fortunately, there is a way to fix it and return to the iOS 0 setting. If you hate clicking the Home Button to Unlock in iOS 10, here are steps to return to the iOS 9 setting:
- Open the Settings app
- Go to the General section
- Choose Accessibility
- Scroll down to Home button and tap the option
- Toggle on “Rest Finger to Open”
by turning on the “Rest Finger to Open” in the Settings, a finger on the Home button will once again unlock the iPhone to the Home screen. congratulation, you are now successfully return it to iOS 9 functionality.
It is claimed that Raise to Wake and the now unlocking system as the improvement over the previous iOS 9 unlocking methods, but it is still arguably an improvement for some reasons. Therefore, users may want to try to get used to the new system instead of making the change. By featuring Raise to Wake and the press to unlock feature, the notification can be seen obviously without accidentally by passing them, which is convenient. For you, any option to unlock your iPhone is all on you. if you feel comfortable with the unlocking system in iOS 10, anyway, you have your right to choose.
