Press Home To Unlock iPad

I have an iPad Air and I now need to press Home to unlock with iOS10. I hate this change since it now requires a mechanical press instead of swiping. After reading quite a few articles about this on the web, I understand some of the reasoning, but that doesn't help me. I wish to go back to the "old way" however, that option is not available to iPad (Air) users (unless you revert to iOS9.3.5).

Since I don't have anything "valuable" on my iPad, I tried disabling my passcode, but I still need to press Home.

I understand that Phones have an option to rest a finger under Accessibility - Home...

I must say I don't care. I am one of those people who don't mind having to sign in to my PCs with Windows 10 either!

I have an iPad 4 which is the oldest one that can get IOS10 so I see no advantages of IOS10 so on the next major IOS version it will be time for a new iPad anyway.

I was a bit annoyed with this change at first but now I'm finding I'm using the fingerprint reader more in conjunction with the press so I'm adjusting a bit.

It's a Touch-ID thing, not an iPhone/iPad thing My iPad Air 2 also has the "Rest Finger to Open". I like the new way better.
