“Raise to Wake” is an exclusive Lock screen feature. Once enabled, it allows you to automatically turn on the screen of your device whenever you pick it up.
As for instance, you no longer have to press the Home button or power button to wake your device’s screen. All you have to do is simply pick up your iPhone and you are done!

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.
