The Messages, Photos, and Maps apps got the biggest updates, but there are a lot of new, smaller tweaks throughout iOS 10 that may be causing new users some confusion.

If you’re wondering what’s going on with the home button or where the heck the music controls are now, here are some essential tips and tricks.

“Slide to unlock” doesn’t exist anymore. You now have to press the home button twice with Touch ID or once to enter in a passcode — but there’s a workaround.

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Home Button > and then slide Rest Finger to Open to enable. This will allow you to open the iPhone with Touch ID instead of having to press the home button every time.
