As expected, iOS 10 came with several upgrades to previous Apple devices operating systems. While some of these changes or improvements have been welcomed by the vast user of the popular device breed, others have not gone down too well with some users. One of the changes that fall into the latter is the change in the way the iPhones are unlocked. Though the change was not a massive change to the operating itself, it has changed the way some people use their iPhones and iPads.

Before, an iPhone user could just rest their fingertip on the Home Button to unlock their device using the inbuilt fingerprint scanner or Swipe to Unlock using a unique passcode, for far older versions of iDevices. But with the small change, there is now the need to retrain your fingers, which is getting frustrating for users. Users now have to press the Home Button to unlock their phone. This new arrangement is not user-friendly and time-consuming. There is no more swiftness that comes with unlocking your iPhone with just a simple touch.

However, there is an easy workaround for this, which disables the Press Home to Unlock feature and allows you to Unlock your iPhone by pressing the Home Button a single time.
