How to Enable or Disable Raise to Wake Lock screen Feature in iOS 10 on iPhone

You have the option to enable/disable Raise to Wake Lockscreen feature in iOS 10 on your compatible iPhone with M9 co-processor on board.

Like most iPhone users who have tried out iOS 10 beta, I’m quite happy with the latest operating system. Impressed with the complete package, we have compiled a huge list of 107 awesome iOS 10 features.

“Raise to Wake” is an exclusive Lock screen feature in iOS 10. Once enabled, it allows you to automatically turn on the screen of your device whenever you pick it up.

That’s it!

If you already have been an Apple Watch user, you would know that there is nothing new about this feature.

Personally, I had been waiting for this functionality to arrive on iPhone as well ever since I started using the Watch. With iPhone 6s boasting of excellent Touch ID sensor, I would often unlock the device while trying to wake it.

Many users had also reported that the fingerprint scanner being so fast, they would often unlock their device whenever they press the Home button to wake the screen. Deep down I knew that Apple would soon resolve this issue.

Besides, Android’s “Ambient Display”, which has the same functionality, has existed for quite some time. It’s great that iOS has finally got it as well.
