How To Change Auto-Lock Settings On iPhone X/iPhone Xr/iPhone Xs/iPhone Xs Max

If you’ve ever had the curiosity to check your iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max settings, you might have bumped into a lot of interesting options. Some of them may be more or less unclear (at least for you, as you don’t know what their purpose is) while others are quite obvious. Hopefully, the Auto-Lock settings are from the second category. With its help, you can decide how fast you want your display to automatically lock, when not in use.

If you usually unlock your iPhone for short moments of time, just to quickly check particular things, you might want to set a small value for the Auto-Lock. It will save battery and spare you from worrying if you have locked the screen yourself or not. But if you use it for longer periods of time, like reading texts, you should adjust this value accordingly.


iPhone X/iPhone Xr/iPhone Xs/iPhone Xs Max Auto-Lock Settings – How to change it:

  1. Unlock the smartphone and navigate to the Home Screen;
  2. Tap the Settings icon and open up the app;
  3. Go to the General section with settings;
  4. Find the Auto-Lock option listed in there;
  5. Select it and choose your desired value from the list with options.


Now that you’ve handled this part nice and easy, you can leave the settings and let it be. Keep using your iPhone X, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max as usual and, when the time will come, the display of the device will auto-lock as per your latest settings.
