- How many of you are swiping to unlock…
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 3 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 3 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+

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%.
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 3 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. 😀mikewsmithMember
providers want to know where home and office are as that’s very valuable information
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 3 years ago
