    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.

    How to Unlock iPhone and iPad without Pressing the Home Button on iOS 10.In iOS 10, you compulsorily have to press the home button to unlock your iPhone or iPad
    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.
    How to Unlock
    iPhone and iPad without Pressing the Home Button on 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.
