‘Raise to Wake’ iOS 10 feature is not available in all iPhone,iPad,iPods- here’s why

Written by
Raise to wake is a great feature in iOS 10, now you no longer need to press the lock button to wake up your iPhone. Now in iOS 10 it’s always active and all you have to do is just Raise your iPhone and your display will automatically turn on.

This feature is exclusively available on iOS 10 beta on Apple’s M9 motion coprocessor devices. If these is good new for iPhone 6s/6s plus users that you are having this great feature and sad news for others that, Sorry your older iPhones are not supported.

Apple has released the iOS 10 beta for developers on this June 13th, iOS 10 is the biggest iOS release ever. And it’s just great. Everything is so buttery smooth and the iMessage features will surely blow your mind. The batter performance is magnificently great. if you want to install iOS 10 beta right now on your iPhone,iPad,iPod touch now then click here to register your device to an Apple Developer account here > and enjoy iOS 10. Read this post on how to install iOS 10 now.

At the moment, that means the feature will only work on Apple’s most recent iPhones, namely the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and SE. The M9 can also be found in iPad Pros, but Raise to Wake doesn’t appear to be supported on those devices as of the first beta.

The limitation mirrors support for using “Hey Siri” in iOS 9 without plugging into power, which is also dependent on having an M9. The difference is that 9.7-inch iPad Pros are supported as well — yet not 12.9-inch models, for reasons unknown.

Raise to Wake is not only technically possible in more recent Apple devices but almost necessary. Apple’s latest Touch ID sensors, found in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, respond so quickly that trying to wake a device with the Home button can completely skip the lockscreen, making any notifications or widgets there useless.

It’s not clear why Apple is keeping the feature off of iPads. While the iPad Pro lineup still sports slower first-generation Touch ID sensors, the Raise-to-Wake-capable iPhone SE does as well.
