Auto-Lock Settings Editing On iPhone And iPad In iOS 10.3

iPhone and iPad devices running on iOS 10.3 have many useful features. One of them is the Auto-lock, a function that automatically locks your display when you’re not using it for a particular period of time.

As you can imagine, this helps with saving the battery, especially if you’re the type of person who forgets to lock the display. But when you are the type of person who gets fascinated by long reads, you will probably hate it when the device will think you’re not using it just because you haven’t moved one finger in a while.

Whatever you’re doing on your iPhone and iPad in iOS 10.3, every time when the screen locks you will be asked to type in the passcode or the fingerprint or whatever lock option you have activated.

The good news is that you can control the time interval that will trigger the Auto-lock. It is actually much easier than you thought. All you have to do is to:

  1. Launch the Settings app;
  2. Go to the General tab and select Auto-lock;
  3. Edit the time frame in the newly opened window.


Save the changes and leave these menus and, from now on, the display of your iPhone and iPad in iOS 10.3 will automatically lock only if you haven’t used if for the previously set period of time.

Spare the battery and spare your nerves, no need to get angry when you see that the displayed locked too soon, because it won’t lock that soon anymore!
