Are you tired of accidentally unlocking your iPhone 11 while it’s in your pocket? Well, worry no more!

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to lock your screen on iPhone 11. Whether you want to prevent unintentional touches or keep your device secure, locking the screen is a simple yet essential feature.

Locking the Screen Using the Side Button

If you prefer a quick and easy method to lock your screen, using the side button is the way to go. Here’s how:

  1. Locate the side button on your iPhone 11. It is located on the right side of the device.

  2. Press and hold the side button until you see the power off slider appear on the screen.

  3. Release the side button and swipe right on “Slide to Power Off” to turn off your device.

Locking the Screen Using AssistiveTouch

If you find it difficult to press and hold buttons simultaneously or if your side button is not working correctly, you can use AssistiveTouch as an alternative method:

  1. Open “Settings” from your home screen.

  2. Scroll down and tap “Accessibility. “

  3. In the Accessibility menu, tap “Touch. “

  4. Tap “AssistiveTouch” and toggle it on.

  5. A floating gray circle will appear on your screen.

    Tap it, then tap “Device. “

  6. In the Device menu, tap “Lock Screen. “

Auto-Lock Settings

Additionally, you can adjust the auto-lock feature on your iPhone 11. This setting determines how long your device will wait before automatically locking the screen.

  1. Open “Settings” from your home screen.

  2. Scroll down and tap “Display & Brightness.”

  3. Tap “Auto-Lock.”

  4. Select the desired time interval for auto-lock (ranging from 30 seconds to Never).


  • You can quickly access the lock screen by pressing the side button or home button (for devices with a home button) once.

  • If you have Face ID enabled, simply cover the front camera with your hand to prevent it from recognizing your face and unlocking the device.

Congratulations! You now know how to lock your screen on iPhone 11 using different methods.

Whether you prefer using the side button, AssistiveTouch, or adjusting auto-lock settings, keeping your device secure has never been easier. Prevent accidental unlocks and enjoy peace of mind knowing that your iPhone is protected.
