How to Turn Off Raise to Wake in iOS 10 - Image 1

Raise to Wake is a new Lock screen feature available in iOS 10. It allows you to wake your phone’s screen simply by picking up your phone. This feature is on by default, but if you’d rather not use it, it’s simple to turn off.

If you have an Apple Watch, you’re already familiar with this feature. If you’ve installed the iOS 10 Beta on your phone, you probably discovered this feature the first time you picked up your phone after installing the update. It’s a handy feature, especially if you want to look at your watch (or phone) while balancing a bunch of stuff in your arms. With the Raise to Wake feature, you don’t have to press the Home button or Power button to wake your phone’s screen. If you use the speedy Touch ID feature to unlock your phone, you might accidentally unlock it in iOS 10 when you try to press the Home button to wake the screen (although, you can still wake the screen using the Power button).

NOTE: This feature is only available on the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, and SE.

Maybe you don’t want the screen turning on every time you pick up the phone to put it in your pocket, pouch, or purse, so you want to turn off the Raise to Wake feature. To do so, tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

The Raise to Wake feature in iOS 10 has the same functionality as Android’s Ambient Display, which has been available for a while. So, now Apple has finally caught up. It’s about time.
