iOS 10: Raise To Wake

iOS 10 introduces Raise To Wake for iPhones. Here is how to switch off Raise to Wake.

The new iOS 10 operating system for iPhone and iPad release will be available for download on September. One of the coolest features is Raise to Wake. If you pick up your iPhone the lock screen comes on you can glance at your current notifications or use the camera with a swipe left. If you get use to it, switching on the iPhone camera will never be quicker and cooler. It will be basically one fluid motion: grab, swipe left, click.

Update: Raise to Wake is working is just perfect to get to the camera quickly. Picking up and left swipe and the camera is ready to snap under a second. We recommend to not turn Raise to Wake off if you use the camera often to take quick snaps.

You might not want the coolest feature of the iOS 10. Here is how to disable Raise to Wake. Go to Settings, Display & Brightness and put the switch next to Raise to Wake to the off state. Done. Your iPhone will activate the screen anymore when you pick it up. Raise to Wake only works on the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The feature requires the the presence of the M9 Motion processor or higher. Raise to Wake does not work on the iPhone 6 and older and also not on the iPad.

Raise to Wake is a pre cursor to the always on display that is expected to be a feature of the iPhone 8 / 7S in 2017. The 10th anniversary iPhone will have an OLED screen with a low power mode for an always on display as known from the Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
