Screen timeout is not a minor setting, whether you’re inspecting it on an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max. Depending on its value, the battery consumption can be influenced, but also your comfort as a user. Of course, there’s no specific recipe as to which value is optimal. If your iPhone has a default value set from the factory, chances are that it is not the value that you actually need.
So, knowing that you can make a change in this direction should give you some extra comfort. To extend or to reduce the screen timeout, you must follow the same simple process.
The 5 steps required to adjust screen timeout on iPhone 8, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max:
- Turn on the device;
- Access the Settings;
- Start from General;
- Tap on Auto-Lock;
- Select your preferred screen timeout value.
Do that and exit the menus. Use your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max normally and you will notice that the screen timeout value already adjusted according to your latest preferences.
