Not me, fingerprint unlock isn’t it 8)Posted 4 years ago
everytime, it’s doing my head in.Posted 4 years ago
I have stopped – eventually (upgraded on first day) … I posted a video is the other thread about how to adjust variois settings inc the unlock. Now I am paranoid about wearing the button out 😳
BTW have now learnt you can programme more than one finger for unlock so thats good
Didn’t Apple fight a long lawsuit about swipe to unlock and now they have ditched it ?Posted 4 years ago
Slowly getting used to not having a real button on the 7Posted 4 years ago

What did you have to do before?Posted 4 years ago
fingerprint if not wearing correct watch, phone auto unlocked if right watch is in range (samsung btw)Posted 4 years ago
Molgrips – swipe plus pin code or hold finger on button if fingerprint id setup. It’s an automatic reaction to pickup phone and swipe, even thiugh I have fingerprint id I used tomswipe/pin 90% of the time
Also here is the video, there is a new stealth tracking feature which I have certainly turned off plus all the homescreen widgets

Why would you be worried about wearing the button out?Posted 4 years ago
Unless you’re also unaware that you don’t have to actually press the home button, just rest your finger on it to unlock*.
I only swipe to unlock my iPad, which is a 3, around four/five years old, I’ve never swiped my iP6+
*Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button > Rest Finger To Open (Open iPhone with Touch ID, without having to press the Home button)
I find the fingerprint recognition a bit hit and miss and slow to respond. Hence press most of the time. I’ve changed the setup as per video and still press and pin code most of the time – maybe 60%.Posted 4 years ago
Find it very strange to swipe.
Haven’t tried recently but had to put my pin in and swipe when my phone was charging, found it very odd indeed.Posted 4 years ago

I must admit mine had a habit of randomly refusing to accept fingerprints a while after they were set up, I had to delete them and re-do them three or four times, but the current set have been working consistently for months now, the only time I have an issue now is if my fingers are wet, which compromises readability.Posted 4 years ago
It may be that OS upgrades have improved the ability of the sensor to read prints consistently. I mainly use my thumbs, but occasionally a fingertip, I’ve got six prints registered, plus my passcode is six digits as well. 😀
Wot? No mugshot unlock?Posted 4 years ago
I’ve put mine back touch to unlock and as I’m not paranoid Ive kept location services on.Posted 4 years ago
Looks like they’re slowing catching up with android… 😉Posted 4 years ago
My unlocking works better on my 5s but the auto correct is killing me! Changing perfectly good words for more obscure ones.Posted 4 years ago
Used to it pretty easily, been running iOS 10 for about 4 weeks. What I’m still not used to is tap to stop the alarm, not swipe! 😳Posted 4 years ago
Drac I turned off the System Services ones, imo they are all about data logging to sell advertising etc. Service providers want to know where home and office are as that’s very valuable informationPosted 4 years ago
Pffffft! Not sure why that would bother me.Posted 4 years ago

it is, it means my antiquated android phone can via google now tell me how long to get home (or my local pub) when I need to leave for my flight, the internal terminal map of the airport and many other useful things
plus all the homescreen widgets
Widgets you say? sounds very cutting edge 😉Posted 4 years ago
