How to Disable “Press Home to Unlock” on iPhone and iPad

Touch ID is an excellent feature that allows you to quickly unlock your iOS device. But what we all do is press the Home button instead of just resting the finger on Touch ID. The feature of unlocking your iPhone without pressing the Home Button was introduced with iOS 10. However, it didn’t get appreciated back then and isn’t popular right now. So if you want to stand out and unlock your iOS device without clicking any button, follow this simple guide and disable Press Home to Unlock on iPhone and iPad.

Note: This only works with Touch Id supported iPhones and iPads. And before we go ahead, make sure you’ve enabled the Raise to Wake feature from the Settings app of your iOS device.
