How to Disable 'Press Home to Open' in iOS 10

...

There's a lot to love about iOS 10. Messages now have some Snapchat-inspired stickers, animations, and emoji. Your iPhone's lock screen can be filled with widgets. And Apple Music got a makeover.

But as with every iOS update, there is a learning curve and a few surprises.

iPhone 7 Haptic FeedbackOne thing you might not like is a change to how your phone unlocks. Previously, those with a Touch ID-enabled iPhone simply held their finger over the home button to unlock. With iOS 10, the default setting requires you to hold a finger over the home button and then press down on it to unlock.

Another option is to press the home button and then either use Touch ID or enter your passcode.

Why the extra step? You can blame the new haptic feedback home button on the iPhone 7. As Apple describes it, "The Home button on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is an advanced solid-state button that Apple designed to be durable, responsive, and pressure sensitive. Working with the new Taptic Engine, the Home button gives you haptic feedback when you press it." If you have a new iPhone 7, you can customize your feedback via Settings > General > Home Button.

But for those of us with an older iPhone, the extra step to unlock a device might be annoying. Thankfully, you can turn it off.

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button. You'll see the option Rest Finger to Open. Move the slider over so that it's green and your iPhone will open with simply a press, as it did before. This also works on iPad.
