Rest Finger to Unlock gets into iOS 10 beta 2

The second iOS 10 beta for developers is out and people have been digging up little changes from feature recalls, new icons and plenty of options.

3D Touch options have been revised in the Control Center. Your organ donation preference is available to toggle in the Health app. Oh, and we have a new home button action: you can now rest your finger to unlock your device.


It’s a convenience measure that takes away the enforced extra tap of the home button to get away from the lock screen in the first developer beta. It also feels like a better obviation of the whole “slide to unlock” mechanic.

The feature, though, isn’t available by default, but hidden away in the Accessibility portion of the settings.
