As the title suggests, iOS 13 somehow requires double clicking on the home button to open wallet and execute a payment.

This usually, almost always actually, unlocks the phone instead. And wallet doesn't open.

Is there a way to enable the previous way of just resting finger on home button without clicking?

  • @Tetsujin check this post: discussions.apple.com/thread/250717887 You used to be able to just rest your finger on the home button and it does the payment. – pnizzle Oct 15 '19 at 8:53
  • I’ve never used it that way. Always double click from sleep, so it’s not something I’ve ever tried. – Tetsujin Oct 15 '19 at 9:54
  • It still works for me like that. However, the timing is definitely different with respect to the double-click on the home button. I used to prefer that method, for example when the card reader was placed in an awkward angle. But now it’s almost impossible to access wallet from locked screen, as the phone is unlocked instantly on the first click of the double-click. – matli Oct 23 '19 at 22:10
  • I've come up with a working solution for now: While phone is locked, quickly double click and release finger from button -> apple wallet comes up instead of unlocking phone -> then just rest finger on fingerprint sensor to scan fingerprint. This has worked for me 100%. As for iPhone X and others without home buttons, I have no clue if they have any issues to begin with. @matli – pnizzle Oct 23 '19 at 22:13
