With iOS 10, press Home to open means you have to click the Home button to actually navigate to your Home screen. You’ll see at the top of Lock screen, when you use Touch ID, it will say Unlocked but it won’t open to Home until you press your Home button. And if you have Raise to Wake disabled, unlocking your iPhone takes two presses of the Home button. Press Home to open can be disabled in Settings by turning on Rest Finger to Open. Here’s how to disable press Home to open with iOS 10 on iPhone.

How to Disable Press Home to Open with iOS 10

  • Open Settings.

  • Tap General.

  • Select Accessibility.

  • Tap Home Button.

  • Turn on Rest Finger to Open.

If you have Raise to Wake on, you won’t need to press Home button to open Home screen at all. Simply place your finger on Home and Touch ID will open your iPhone. If you don’t have Raise to Wake on, a single press will open your iPhone just as it did before iOS 10 was introduced.
