If you’ve recently updated to iOS 10, you may be scratching your head wondering, “why does my iPhone screen turn on when I pick it up?” Meet raise to wake on iPhone. Raise to wake is a feature that was originally used on Apple Watch. And it made a lot of sense—you lift your wrist because you’re probably trying to check the time.

It makes it easy to see my notifications and change the song I’m listening to. However, if you pick up your phone a lot, it might cut into your battery life. This might also be the first time you’ve heard of the feature—if so, we’ll quickly cover what it is. Then we’ll jump into how to disable raise to wake in iOS 10 on iPhone just in case you ever decide to do so.
