The iPhone X brings many new features that other models of the company are impossible to prove. From the iOS 10 output, Apple’s phone users had a new feature called ‘Lift to wake up’. This is that the iPhone screen-starting from the iPhone 6S-turns on every time we lift the terminal from a flat surface.

However, with the arrival of the iPhone X, another function was added: «Press to activate» . The latest Cupertino smartphone model allows you to ‘wake up’ the terminal screen by giving it a touch on it – if I remember badly, this function appeared for the first time in a Nokia model. Now, with this active function, the ‘awakenings’ of the iPhone X can be more often than usual. Therefore, in addition to the annoying to have the screen on every two times, it is possible that the battery is also resentful in this regard. So let’s show you how to turn off this feature. But, as you are probably thinking, even if we deactivate this function we will have the other active mode of activating the screen without having to resort to the side button. We are talking about «Lift to activate» . And we will also teach you how to deactivate it.


The first thing we should do is to direct, as always, to the “Settings” icon of the iPhone X. Secondly, we will click on the “General” option and among all the alternatives we will have to go to “Accessibility”. There are multiple options there that you can activate or deactivate. In this case, what we are looking for is the one that refers to our protagonist function «Press to activate». As you can see, the switch is activated. You only have to deactivate it.


But as we have indicated, we will have the function of “Lift to activate”. We will have to look for this function again in “Settings”; we look for the «Screen and brightness» option and the option «Lift to activate» will be activated inside. Once deactivated, the only way to ‘wake up’ the screen of your iPhone X will be the precise moment you want; that is, by pressing the side button of the chassis.
