Unlock iPhone and iPad without Pressing the Home Button on iOS 10


iOS 10 beta has been released and there are so many new features integrated on it. Some are cool and some are pointless like the new Lock Screen.

The lock screen has been changed and is very disappointing for many users i guess. Now when you swipe right, there is no passcode option. Instead the widget has been added. To unlock your device, there is a new way. All you have to do is press the home button and then enter the passcode or use the Touch ID.

In iOS 9, unlocking the iPhone was simply easy. Slide to unlock was the key feature of the iPhone from the beginning. But Apple has ditched this feature in its new iOS 10 which is quite disappointing. Apple could have modified the Slide to Unlock feature in a different way. But it has completely removed it from the iOS. So we hope Apple will add Slide to Unlock in final version of iOS 10.

In iOS 10, you compulsorily have to press the home button to unlock your iPhone or iPad. Either you are going to unlock it by passcode or Touch ID, you need to press it anyway. As you might have noticed, there is a new feature where you can wake your device by flipping it. Now here also, you will have to press the home button to unlock your device. There is no point in integrating the proximity sensor to wake up the device if we have to press the home button. It could have unlocked by simply touching the Touch ID on 64 bit iPhones and iPads. But to unlock iPhones and iPads in iOS 10, pressing home button all the time is quite unusual because continuingly pressing the home button could brick it and what if your home button is not working?

So here is a tricky way to unlock your iPhone or iPad without pressing the home button or when your home button is not working
First you have to enable Assistive Touch (Settings --- General --- Accessibility --- Assistive Touch)

For Non Touch ID device like iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C
Step 1: Press the Power button or just flip your device to wake the screen
Step 2: Touch the Assistive Touch button and press the Home Button icon

Step 3: It will show up to enter the passcode option. Enter it to unlock your device.

For Touch ID devices iPhone 5s/SE/6/6s/plus
Step 1: Press the Power button or just flip your device to wake the screen
Step 2: Touch the Assistive Touch button and press the Home Button icon
Step 3: It will show up to enter the Touch ID or passcode option. Enter it or Touch the Touch ID to unlock your device.

Step 4: Or you can first Touch the Touch ID --- open Assistive Touch and then tap the home button icon.

I don't want to press the home button everytime I want to unlock my iPhone. I just want it be simple like it used to be in iOS 9. Since iOS 10 is in beta phase, so Apple should either bring back the old style Slide to Unlock with some modification or fix the home button issue on public release of iOS 10.
