How to Turn Off Raise to Wake in iOS 11 on iPhone

Apple introduced countless awesome features in its latest iOS 10. With the passing of every day, we dig deep and unearth useful features on our iPhone and iPad. iPhone Raise to Wake is another feature that many iOS users appreciate. At the same time, it has also received some censure from a lot of people. So here is how to turn ON/off Raise to wake on iPhone.

Most people believe that Raise to Wake consumes iPhone battery like anything. Sorry, they indulge in a wrong notion. Apple has taken enough care while developing this feature of Raise to Wake. Apple has configured the sensors to detect the raise gesture in such a way that they make out a situation when your iPhone is kept in your pocket, backpack or purse. This clearly avoids any impact on the battery life of your iPhone.

However, there are innumerable back-bench conservatives in the world, who never accept new things and stick to the old ways of waking up their smartphones. And this method actually burns more battery.

Anyway, we should not waste our time in convincing them to use new features. But what we can do them for is to tell them how they can turn ON/off Raise to Wake on iPhone.

How to Turn Off Raise to Wake Feature in iOS 10 on Your iPhone

How to Enable or Disable Raise to Wake on iPhone in iOS 10 (Works in iOS 11 too)

Step #1: Open Settings app on your iPhone.

Tap on Settings

Step #2: Tap on Display & Brightness option, which is right below General.

Tap on Display & Brightness

Step #3: Now turn off Raise to Wake feature.

It is done! This will take you back to pre-iOS 10 era and you can use your old habits of pressing either Home or Power button to wake up your iPhone. But remember that excessive use of Power button can damage the hardware, and you will have to shell out a few bucks to install the new Power button. Better yet, use AssistiveTouch to replace your physical Power button.

iOS 10 has got many appreciable features for owners of iPhone and iPad. Though this new operating system has invited some criticism from common users as well as experts. Before iOS 10, users were able to unlock the lock screen with a single swipe, if they had not set up Touch ID or passcode. But with the latest iOS 10, users have to tap on Home button twice to unlock the phone’s lock screen.

Thankfully, there lies a solution in iPhone settings. Users can disable Press Home to Unlock iPhone/iPad in iOS 10. However, after disabling Press Home to Unlock, users have to enable their Touch ID on the device.

Don’t Miss:

There can be many other minor problems with this new operating system. Keep exploring iOS 10 to the full and you will find many interesting features as well as some irritating issues. Make sure that on the surface, issues may annoy you, but once you get used to it, you will be experiencing many benefits of any feature.

Earlier, I was critical of Apple’s policy to roll out iOS developer’s version, but now I am convinced that Apple is doing it right as users will get a flawless operating system once developers find faults in the primary version.
