How to enable/disable Raise to Wake feature in iOS 10 on iPhone


iOS 10 comes with tons of new features, making it the biggest iOS release ever in history. Like most iOS users who have been testing the iOS 10, I am impressed with iOS 10’s awesome features.

One of the biggest changes coming to iOS 10 is “Raise to Wake”, a new lock screen feature which is exclusive to iOS 10. Basically, the new feature will automatically wake the screen of your device any time you pick it up, which is more convenient than pressing the Home button or power button to wake the device up.

However, if you are not too much happy with iOS 10’s new feature, you can easily disable and wake up your iPhone by yourself. In contrast, you can enable it any time you change your mind.

In this post, we will show you how to enable and disable iOS 10’s Raise to Wake lock screen feature on iPhone.

How to disable Raise to Wake in iOS 10 on your iPhone

Step 1: Launch the Settings from your Home screen.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Display & brightness.


Step 3: You will notice that the switch next to Raise to Wake is now turned on, and all you have to do is to turn it off to disable the feature.

If you are quite happy with iOS 10’s new lock screen feature, you can turn it back on by using the following steps:

Step 1: Open the Settings app on your device.

Step 2: In the Settings menu, tap on Display & Brightness to proceed.

Step 3: Toggle the Raise to Wake slider to the right to enable it.


That’s simple! Raise to Wake is not a new concept, as it has existed on Android for some time. If you are using the Apple Watch, there is nothing new to expect from this feature. However, Raise to Wake is a great feature that many iPhone users have been waiting for. Therefore, if you have got iOS 10 installed on your iPhone, make the most of the feature.
