Learn how to change the auto-lock time on an iPhone in this Howcast video.


Hi, Lisa here. And I'm gonna show you how to change the autolock timer on your iPhone. So, you wanna go ahead into your settings, you can scroll down, choose general. Then you'll scroll again and you'll see an option that says autolock. You'll tap on that. You're gonna see the option for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 minutes or never. Now, the autolock is how long will the phone screen will remain on before it turns itself off automatically.

So, if you wanna say battery life, you wanna choose something 1 or 2 minutes. If you don't want the screen to ever turn off, you want it to always available to you right away, you're gonna want to choose never. So, right here I'd like to save some battery life, I'll choose one minute, then I can go back. And now, if I don't touch the phone for a minute, it will automatically lock the screen. And that's how you change your autolock on your iPhone.
