How to Keep Screen on iPhone

Do you find it annoying when your iPhone screen keeps turning off after a few seconds of inactivity? If you’re reading an article, following a recipe, or watching a video, having the screen go dark can be quite frustrating.

Thankfully, there are simple settings you can adjust to keep your iPhone screen on for longer periods. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to keep your iPhone screen from automatically turning off.

Method 1: Adjust Auto-Lock Settings

If you want to keep your iPhone screen on for an extended period, you can change the Auto-Lock settings. Follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Unlock your iPhone and open the Settings app.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Display & Brightness.”
  3. Step 3: Tap on “Auto-Lock.”
  4. Step 4: Choose the desired time limit or select “Never” if you want to keep the screen on indefinitely.

This method allows you to customize how long your iPhone’s screen stays on before it automatically locks. Keep in mind that setting it to “Never” will drain your battery faster since the screen will always remain active, so use this option sparingly.

Method 2: Use Guided Access

If you need to keep your iPhone’s screen on while using a specific app or during a particular activity, Guided Access is a helpful feature. Here’s how to enable it:

  1. Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “Accessibility.”
  3. Step 3: Tap on “Accessibility Shortcut” (located at the bottom).
  4. Step 4: Enable “Guided Access.”

To use Guided Access to keep your screen on for a specific app, follow these steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the app you want to keep the screen on for.
  2. Step 2: Triple-click the side or home button (depending on your iPhone model) to activate Guided Access.
  3. Step 3: Tap on “Options” at the bottom left corner of the Guided Access screen.
  4. Step 4: Toggle ON “Time Limit” and set it to a longer duration or choose “No Time Limit.”

This method is particularly useful when you want to prevent accidental touches or interruptions while using a specific app, such as during presentations or reading long articles.

Tips for Keeping Your Screen On

If you’re hesitant about changing settings or using Guided Access, here are some additional tips to help keep your iPhone screen from turning off too quickly:

  • Avoid Dim Lighting: Using your iPhone in dimly lit areas may trigger auto-lock sooner. Make sure you have sufficient lighting while using your device.
  • Maintain Activity: Interact with the screen regularly by tapping, scrolling, or watching videos.

    This activity prevents your iPhone from entering sleep mode.

  • Disable Raise to Wake: On newer iPhone models, the “Raise to Wake” feature may inadvertently turn off the screen if you move your device too much. You can disable this feature in the Display & Brightness settings.

With these methods and tips, you can now keep your iPhone screen on for extended periods, allowing for uninterrupted usage. Whether you’re reading, watching, or presenting, your iPhone screen will stay active and engaged!
