    I think I'm missing something.

    On my iP7+, regardless of the setting being on or off, I still have to press the home button to wake the phone and unlock at the same time with touch id.

    What's the difference between the two settings?

    If the screen is on at the lock screen (pressing the side button or raise to wake) it will unlock and open the phone without pushing down.

    Resting finger unlocks, not wake. So when you get to the passcode pad, you just rest finger on home button. No pressing. With "raise to wake", it's useful. Raise phone, rest finger...bingo.
    With the 6s and up, the pressing of the home button works too good. It bypasses the password pad screen. Many like to see the lock screen for notifications and such. So they offered Raise to wake and rest finger to unlock.

    Love the raise to wake feature, so glad it was added.

    Thanks.

    In a raise to wake situation, can you please give an example of When someone would want to have to press the home button? Your thumb is already there for Touch ID, why the extra step?

    Well, when you raise your phone and the lock screen comes on, you only have to touch the button (not press it) and it unlocks your phone. If you haven't raised your phone to wake the lock screen and your screen is still black, you have to press down on the home button (which is registering your fingerprint at the same time) to unlock your phone. You can turn off the raise to wake feature if you don't like it.

    I have the 6S Plus and this is how it works for me. I'm assuming with the 7 you have to press for the haptic (Taptic) feedback if you're unlocking from a black screen. Basically the same thing - just a light touch if the lock screen is on due to "raise to wake."

    The idea is to allow those who wish the opportunity to view the lock screen. I like seeing my lockscreen notifications when I wake in the morning. So raise to wake...read notifications > rest finger to unlock to the home screen.

    Make sure the rest finger to open is toggled on under accessibility settings in General and that you also have raise to wake toggled on. So when I raise my phone and the screen comes on all I need to do is place my finger on touchID and my phone unlocks to the home screen.

    Right...but the only difference would be that instead of resting, in push a fraction of a hair harder to achieve the same effect?

    Not trying to be difficult/ I guess I just have giant hands and pressing hard is the same for me, lol

    From the lock screen, yes they do the same. But "rest" is easier than "push" and doesn't wear on the button. Use it a while and you'll see the difference.

    Actually this feature shouldn't make a difference to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus owners. Because anyway there is no physical home button.
    This makes sense for me though, I own an iphone 6s and it comes really handy!
