  • 'Slide to Unlock' is no longer with us in iOS 10
    Ever since Jobs first showcased it on the iPhone in 2007 – “And to unlock my phone I just take my finger and slide it across” – it has been an iconic symbol on iOS. With iOS 10, it’s gone to live with his skeuomorphic cousins.

    It might seem like a small change but this “Slide to Unlock” was literally the first interaction for millions of new smartphone users. So simple. So brilliant. This smooth, delightful interaction told them – it’s fine. It doesn’t stutter, and it won’t lag. Smooth, just like the door lock it was probably inspired from.

    In iOS 10, instead of “Slide to Unlock”, you’ll see a small text that says “Press Home to Unlock”. And even that will appear only after a while. When you pick up your phone to see the lockscreen (something you can do in iOS 10), there won’t be any text at all here (just like in iOS 9).

    R.I.P Slide to Unlock

      Unless you're in a hurry and your screen wiggles 3 times trying to use a print that doesnt go through because your hands are dirty or something.

      Unfortunately, jailbroken and stuck on 9.0.2. Since I use my right thumb to unlock about 90% of the time, what I do is register it twice as separate fingers. Even with a little grime or semi wet, it still works most of the time.
