Getting started

The Auto-Lock feature on iPads is a power-saving mode where the device screen turns off after a period of inactivity. While this feature is useful in conserving battery life, there are instances when you might want the screen to remain active for extended periods. This guide provides you with step-by-step instructions to disable the Auto-Lock feature, ensuring your iPad screen never turns off automatically.

Unlock Your iPad

Start by pressing the Home button or swiping up from the bottom (depending on your iPad model) to unlock your device.

Open Settings

Locate the "Settings" app on your iPad's home screen. It's characterized by a gray gear icon.
Tap on the "Settings" icon to open the app.

Access Display & Brightness Settings

In the left pane of the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on "Display & Brightness."

Find the Auto-Lock Option

Once you're in the "Display & Brightness" section, you'll find the "Auto-Lock" option on the right pane.

Select Never

Tap on "Auto-Lock" to view the available time intervals.
You'll see options ranging from 30 seconds to 5 minutes, and at the bottom of the list, there's a "Never" option.
Tap on the "Never" option.

Exit Settings

Once you've selected "Never," your changes will be saved automatically. You can now exit the Settings app.

You're all set!

Disabling the Auto-Lock feature on your iPad ensures that the screen remains active and doesn’t turn off automatically. This can be especially helpful during presentations, reading, or any activity that requires the screen to be on for prolonged periods. However, remember that keeping the screen on continuously can consume more battery. Ensure your device is adequately charged or connected to a power source if you plan to have the screen on for extended durations.
