Lift to Unlock : Raise to Wake is a new Lock screen feature available in iOS 10. It allows you to wake your phone’s screen simply by picking up your phone. This feature is on by default, but if you’d rather not use it, it’s simple to turn off.
iOS 10 makes waking your iPhone from sleep as easy as raising it in your hand. Aptly named Raise to Wake, this useful feature automatically wakes the screen as you raise the device so that you can instantly see all your notifications at a glance. It may sound like it’s no big deal, but it is. However, Raise to Wake requires iOS to constantly capture and interpret data from the iPhone’s many sensors to determine how you’re holding the phone in your hand.
In order to realize this feature in a power-frinedly manner, it reads data from the sensors using an Apple-designed motion coprocessor, which also happens to be required for tetherless ‘Hey Siri’ functionality. So, does your iPhone support Raise to Wake on iOS 10 or not?
System requirements for iOS 10 are the same as those for its predecessor, but the iPhone 4s, the original iPad mini and iPad 2 are no longer supported.
With iOS 10, you can allow the display on your iPhone to awaken when you pick up your phone to look at it. Much the same as it is on the Apple Watch, Raise to Wake, lets you get a quick glance at your notification without a single button press.
