Tomorrow, iOS 10 will be released along with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones. The latest iteration of iOS has many new features and improvements, but not all features are welcome by everyone.
Until now, you need to rest your finger on the iPhone's home button first to unlock the device with TouchID. With the iOS 10, you need to press the home button. It is claimed that this will give you a chance to check the lock screen notifications as TouchID is pretty fast.
If you don't want to use the home button, you can disable the same with a new setting in the iOS 10 beta version. To get the pre-iOS 10 way of unlocking the iPhone or iPad using TouchID, you need to do a few changes in the Settings menu as shown below.

Go to Settings
Open the Settings menu on your device that runs iOS beta and choose the option 'Accessibility'.
Home button settings should be tweaked
From Accessibility, you need to scroll to the setting 'Home Button'. If you find difficulty in finding it, you can find it above the Reachability switch.
Rest finger option should be enabled
When you click on Home button settings, you will find a new toggle in iOS 10 called Rest Finger to Open. This toggle should be turned on. This way, you will be able to unlock the device by just resting your finger on the Home button. Note that this option is applicable only for devices that support TouchID.
You can change it anytime
If you want to unlock your iPhone or iPad the iOS 10 way, you can do it by just turning this toggle off. This way, you need to press the home button on your device to unlock it.
Other controls in Home button setting
Apart from this option, the home button setting will let you control a few other things as well. You can adjust the click speed, if needed. A double click on the home button will open the multitasking view and a triple click will open the Accessibility options.
