Increase or Decrease iPhone Auto-Lock time

Your iPhone screen will remain on if you are interacting with the screen, but as soon as you leave the screen idle, you seen will go off into Auto-Lock in 30 seconds (ideal default setting or when in Power Saver Mode)

If you have a use-case where you want to keep your iPhone screen on for long you can do that by the below steps,

  • Go to Settings Application,
  • iPhone Display and Brightness-min
    iPhone Display and Brightness-min
  • Go to Display & Brightness,
  • Tap on Auto-Lock,
  • iPhone Display and Brightness Auto-Lock Option-min
    iPhone Display and Brightness Auto-Lock Option-min
  • Now you can select Auto-Lock time from the below options available,
    • 30 seconds
    • 1 minute
    • 2 minutes
    • 3 minutes
    • 4 minutes
    • Never
    iPhone Screen Auto-Lock Options-min
    iPhone Screen Auto-Lock Options-min
  • Come out of Settings, now your screen will remain lit until the time you have set for auto lock.

✌️If you have Low Power Mode turned on, you will see that the Auto-Lock is defaulted to 30 seconds and disabled i.e. you will not be allowed to increase or decrease auto-lock settings.
