OS 10 has many new features, but one that hasn’t gotten much media attention is Raise to Wake. If you turn on Raise to Wake, you can see your Phone7’s Lock screen without having to touch the Home button.
Raise to Wake is a new Lock screen feature available in OS 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.
Key Feature of Raise to Wake for Android:
✔ You can raise your hand to unlock device
✔ Click start to enable this application.
✔ When your phone / tablet is locked, raise your hand to wake screen up
✔ Raise to unlock: Unlock the screen by raise the device screen.
✔ You can increase or decease the sensitivity of your sensor.
✔ You can use this App to Unlock the Screen if your android have Proximity Sensor
✔ Working with Android N ( Nougat )
Raise to Wake is particularly useful if you have the second generation Touch ID sensor, which is so fast that it makes it hard to see your Lock screen OS 10 before you get taken to the Home screen.
In this how-to I’ll show you how to enable Raise to Wake (or disable it if you prefer not to use it).
How to enable or disable Raise to Wake in OS 10
It’s very easy to turn Raise to Wake on or off.
1. Open the Raise to Wake app.
2. Tap on Enable "Raise to Wake".
3. Tap on the Raise to Wake switch.
That’s it, when you raise your Android Phone 7 up you will now see your OS10 Lock screen without ever having to touch your Home button.
If you change your mind, you can easily disable Raise to Wake by tapping the switch again.
One caveat though that you should know about Raise to Wake. As I write this post the feature requires the M9 processor found in the Phone SE, Phone 6s, and the Phone 6s Plus. So if your phone doesn’t have that, you won’t be able to use Raise to Wake.
The devices that have an embedded TYPE_PROXIMITY required for Raise to Wake are:
- Phone 6s
- Phone 6s Plus
- Phone SE
Why I love Raise to Wake on the Phones 6s Plus
You’d think that something like Raise to Wake would not be a big deal, given all the other cool new features in OS 10. But I’ve found that it’s one of the best things about Android’s new version of OS10.
When I pick up my Phone and I see the Lock screen, I can easily swipe left to load the camera app, or I can swipe right to access my widgets. I can also access notifications right on the Lock screen, including Messages notifications that I can reply to immediately.
Once you get used to having Raise to Wake, it’s pretty tough to do without it. It’s an OS feature that feels like it should have always been there.
