Auto lock is a useful option in iPhone. The feature locks your phone automatically when you don’t use it. But sometimes auto lock feature in iPhone becomes a nuisance, especially because it locks the iPhone after 30 seconds of inactivity. Now 30 seconds of inactivity mean that you can’t take short breaks during texting of video bingeing. Auto lock feature is not for me because I want my iPhone to remain on while I good around and do my other tasks. I don’t want to enter my passcode again and again to unlock my iPhone. To make things worse, some users report that auto lock feature locks their iPhone after 30 seconds and they cannot disable it because the auto lock feature is greyed out when they go to Settings to get rid of it.
