Slide to unlock removal could be deadly

A few days while the comings and goings, an impressive looking sports car whizzed past me. I tried to take a quick picture of it on my iPhone, but because it happened so fast I got a little confused and forgot that slide to unlock no longer works and don't slide up to start the camera. Subsequently, I've missed because my mind didn't work fast enough under pressure.

And I was wondering... What happens if the same thing were to happen in more serious circumstances? For example, a woman can be followed and need to call for emergency assistance. It cannot be thought in a panic and right forget how to use the phone properly to make that crucial call. Who knows what might happen?

I know this example is a little extreme, but it serves a point that Apple remove something that is ingrained in our brains for reasons of change could be dangerous. Remove slide it to only unlock the device serves no end! Maybe they could give us a choice in the operating system of dragging or by pressing the home button? I like Apple products, but I hate how they sometimes change things that do not need fixing.

Thanks for reading.

The great thing about human brains is their ability to adapt to change. You will find that you will adapt to the new system, just as you learned to swipe to unlock when you've got an iPhone.

Do you mean that only women should always call emergency? Or that only women are not well under pressure and would be so confusing them would not be able to make a call?

Note: you don't have to unlock the phone to make an emergency call.

I did not use swipe to unlock since TouchID has been implemented. Contact ID was always faster.

  • "Slide to Unlock" missing in iOS 10

    Got my iPhone 6 s upgraded to the new iOS10 and the kind of love him so far with a few basic things missing that are really bothering me. "Slide to Unlock", it was a legacy feature iPhone since its inception. By pressing the button Home to unlock is not at all cool and would reduce the life expectancy of the solitary button in the device. Yes, I know, we can roll back to touch id unlock, but what happens if I don't use either that or my device isn't a contact id. Can I ask Apple (including John and Tim) Please give us an update soon that could have an option to return "Slide to unlock". I don't know there are millions of people who are not like that.

    Pending an update soon

    Try these general steps. They could help.

    1 reset your iPhone by pressing and holding the sleep/wake and home buttons.

    2 disconnect you from your iCloud account and reconnect again.

  • Can you guys please add "slide to unlock" iOS 10

    Can you guys please add "slide to unlock" iOS 10, I use a mini ipad 2 and its got no contact ID.

    It is very annoying to press home to unlock.

    Please Apple, my mini 2 still works and I don't want to change your ipad with touch ID now.

    I will buy another if my mini 2 cant function more. But please, add slide to unlock to ios 10 so that I can still enjoy my mini 2

    Apple will probably not bring the 'slide to unlock' feature back since it has been deleted just today. You don't need to have an iPad with Touch ID to unlock but. Pressing the Home button will do exactly the same thing that slide to unlock did, just without swiping.

  • Slide slide to unlock will not start up an iPad.  In the upper right corner is also a symbol of hald-moon.

    Hit to swipe "slide to unlock" doesn't let me get into the iPad.  After trying to swipe it just stops and the screen will Dim.  In the upper right corner is also a symbol of halfpipe.

    On the Slide to Unlock screen (but before swiping) try to drag the control center to the top of the bottom sliding upward. If the pipe is lit (bright) try turning it off to see if it helps...

    If not try a Forced restart of the slide for... screen.

    Hold down the home and Sleep/Wake buttons simultaneously for about 15-20 seconds , until the Apple logo appears. Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it rises. You won't lose anything.

  • IPad is stuck on the slide to unlock any ideas

    Hi carolefromcramlington

  • Please let me slide to unlock

    I have upgraded to iOS 10. More annoying is that I have to press the home button to unlock the screen. I'm not like touch ID or snap buttons, so could could you allow me to use the traditional way.

    Thank you very much.

    Hello

    No it's for safety if you just had a slide anyone can steal and use your iPhone.

  • I don't have the option in my settings slide to unlock rather than use the button "home" since ios10

    Hi I have an iphone 5 and I changed to ios10, but I don't like just press the home button to unlock the phone because I was just used to drag the screen. But when I go into settings > general > accessibility > "home" button is not the option press on / do not press the button for unlock...

    This is how it works in iOS10.  There are a lot of discussions about it.  I've already gotten quite used to the reality, is that with each new version of iOS, there are new features and things change.  To answer your question, there is no setting for slide open.

  • with the help of iTFW for the removal of tracks dead

    I prefer to use other software to manage and play my media, but still rely on iTunes for tasks (for example, to manage an iPod).  Therefore, I trust iTFW (record shows iTunes) to keep my iTunes updated library...

    I had not used iTFW for a long time since giving up my iPod, but now need to use it after having opted in iTunes Music Match.  However, now and with versions of iTunes (12.4.1.6), if I want to delete detected dead titles iTunes pushes me every time "are you sure you want to delete this song?

    Apart from iTunes may delete the file (my library is backed up), but I can't approve each deletion a track of dead... and even less of them 5800...

    Of course, I am here for suggestions as to what others can do about it and what option should I use ("Download remove" or "remove song")... but I am also looking to give their comments on all people to iTunes to Apple not wanting to manage their iTunes library...

    TIA

    Try to connect to iTunes Music Library so that iTFW only must make in the face of content stored locally which may be missing. This should prevent iTunes questions on whether to delete the downloads or remove or hide content cloud.

    You should probably clean your copies while too disconnected. See Re: I can not find my duplicates in Itunes 12.4.

    I love this phone and now my only problem (just me probably..) is an incoming call has this slide that you have to move, and I was wondering if there is a way to get rid of her... I asked before the lock on the front screen and got the unlock app that works very well if anyone knows if there is one for an incoming call? It's a pain... Thank you!
