The iPhone X comes with “Tap to Wake” feature which lets you wake the screen of your device just by tapping the display. It’s a nice way to check out the latest notifications quickly. But what if you accidentally tap the screen or just don’t want to keep it enabled as you wish to extend the battery of your device? Well, you have the option to turn off Tap to Wake feature on your iPhone X.
There is already a similar feature called “Raise to Wake” which lets you wake the screen of your device when you pick it up. And if this feature is available, disabling “Tap to Wake” won’t change your user-experience.
How To Turn Off Tap To Wake On iPhone X
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your device → Now, tap on General.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap on Accessibility.
Step #3. Now, turn off the switch that’s right next to Tap to Wake.
From now onwards, when you tap the display of your iPhone, the screen won’t wake. If you ever wish to get it back, just follow the steps we have just talked about and then turn it on in the end.
Have you enabled “Raise to Wake?” By default, this feature is on, but if you have turned it off, enable it to wake the screen of your device quickly. Besides, it’s a bit more practical way to wake the screen of the iPhone. Open Settings app → Display & Brightness and turn on the switch next to Raise to Wake.
