iOS – How to Make the Raise to Wake Feature Work Every Time

The Raise to Wake feature was added to iOS 10, and it will allow your iPhone to wake up when you raise it or flip the phone when it is lying on its front. However, the screen is “supposed” to turn on when you do these things so you can easily see your notifications without pressing the Home or power buttons. While it does sound great when looking or reading about it on paper, but in reality, the new feature is quite finicky to use. There are a lot of iPhone users who would just turn off the feature because of its uselessness. However, there is actually a way on how you can reliably trigger it. Read on to find out how.

Make the Raise the Work Feature in iOS Work Every Time

Step 1 – First of all, the Raise to Wake feature in iOS  makes use of the M9 processor, which means it will only work for the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, and SE smartphones. Should you be using an older model of an iPhone and have iOS 10, then it wouldn’t work. Now that we have that covered, then take note of some ways to make the feature work every time, instead of grinding your teeth and thinking about how a failure of a functionality it is.

Step 2 – Reports say that there are two ways on how the Raise to Wake feature from iOS 10 will work. The first one is to flip your iPhone right from being face down to face up, and this should be done rather quickly for the feature to work. As for the other way to do it, you should lift your iPhone so that it will become vertical and in portrait mode; also, it should be perpendicular to the ground when you’re doing this.

Step 3 – Upon knowing these, take note that when your iPhone is lying down face down on a surface and you decide to turn it up, the Raise to Wake feature in iOS should and will activate. Furthermore, it wouldn’t matter as to what axis you flip it over to its other side as it will always trigger. You can even use this when your iPhone came from your pocket, just remember that you should flip it face down to up in quick rotating fashion to make the feature work. Knowing this, you don’t have to turn off the feature any longer and keep on using it to your heart’s content.
