How to prevent the screen from locking on iPhone


Have you ever read a lengthy article on your iPhone and had to unlock the screen many times until you're done reading? Or did you want to track time with your iPhone tracker, but the screen was still locking?

Don't let this problem ruin your iPhone experience. There is a simple way to prevent the screen from locking, and in this article, we will show you how.


Step by step guide

There are two things you can do. You can completely disable the automatic lock, or you can change the settings and have your phone lock only after a longer period. Here we'll explain to you how to do it:

  1. Go to settings.
  2. Touchez on Screen and Brightness.
  3. Touchez Auto-Lock.
  4. To deactivate it, select "Never".

There you go! Your screen will not lock unless you choose to do so.

On the other hand, if you don't want to disable the auto lock feature entirely, you can extend the period before your iPhone freezes. The shortest period you can set is 30 seconds, while the longest is 5 minutes. You can also choose anything in between.

Can I do this in low power mode?

If you're like most people, you probably sometimes keep your iPhone in low-power mode. Especially if you have to spend the whole day outside and know that you won't be able to charge your phone soon.

Are there any restrictions when it comes to keeping the screen unlocked in low power mode? Unfortunately, we will have to disappoint you. You cannot prevent the screen from locking or disable auto lock in low power mode. Auto lock automatically resets to 30 seconds and there is no way to change it.

It may sound irritating, but it is very reasonable. The screen uses a lot of power and there is no point in trying to save battery power while the screen is active. You will have to choose between conserving the battery and keeping the screen active.

What is lifting to wake up?

Since you're in the Settings app, you've probably noticed a feature with a somewhat unusual name: "Lift to wake up." It's right below the auto-lock feature. What's that all about?

As you know, the latest generations of iPhone are very sensitive and sensitive to movement. If you activate the wake up function, it means that even if your phone is locked, it will activate the lock screen every time you pick up your phone to look at it.

It is programmed to recognize the movement we usually make when we want to verify something on the phone. This feature is useful when you want to see the time without unlocking your phone.

However, it is not possible to unlock your iPhone in this way. You can only wake up the screen and perform some essential functions like checking the time or searching for new messages. You can also open your Control Center or access your notifications. Also, you can take a quick photo while your phone is locked.
