First crummy OS for the iPhone

I actually hate this new OS. They thought they'd be cute and use the fingerprint thing to unlock the phone and it takes much longer than using the 4 digits. Is there a way to disable that?

THEN, when I press it, up come VOICE CONTROL, which I never use since that is so painful to listen to. But with this new OS, voice takes control of my phone and fully ignore all controls I am supposed to have over the device.

How do I stop that too?

This was a big painful update I wish they would roll back entirely.

Thanks

1. Yes. Go to Settings, Touch ID and Passcodes, enter your passcode and remove any fingerprints. All done.

2. Turn Siri OFF.

I do not use Siri and do not have voice control.

I find one fingerprint works better than multiple although you do not need to use them

You are very welcome. I find that IOS 10.0.2 actually works quite well.

You should read OS supplied guidelines before developing. I can't stress that enough. The guidelines will help you understand the reasons mobile app developers do what they do.  Apple is very particular when they review appstore submissions.
