iPad users running iOS 10 or later will no longer be required to "slide to unlock" their device. Instead users will need to push their Home button to access the Home screen of their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. This is because Apple has added additional features to the Home screen in iOS 10. Users will be able to swipe right on their Lock screen to access installed widgets, and swipe right to quickly access their Camera app. Previously users could swipe up on the bottom right hand corner of their Lock screen to access the Camera app. It is unknown at this time if the final version of iOS 10 will have an option to restore the slide to unlock feature on your iPad, but it is doubtful.
How do I restore the slide to unlock option on my iPad?
