    I've read that iOS 10 has done away with the 'Swipe to open' routine and now uses the Home button to activate it instead. If you leave it turned on, do smart covers with magnets still put the iPad into sleep mode when closed?

    Yes, they do.

    You still can find Lock/Unlock, which is related to the cover. It's in Settings - Display & Brightness.

    Johanna has already answered your question - just to second the advice; I have a 'Smart Cover' on my iPad Air 2 and after upgrading to iOS 10, the cover still works fine.

    However, when opened from sleep, if using 'Touch ID', the default is the need to first press the Home button, leave finger touching to enter the device - kind of a second step that some will find annoying (like me) - well, this can be changed, if desired - go to Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Home Button (first image below); then toggle the setting w/ the arrow (as I had done - second image) - NOW, when my smart cover activates the iPad, I can simply hold my finger for Touch ID recognition like in the past. Dave :)

    Thanks for "Rest Finger" tip. It was driving me crazy!
