    I have the same problem ever since I updated to IOS 6. I use assistive touch and auto lock doesn't work everytime. The battery drained and my phone died a few times. This is a very serious bug. Apple please fix it.

    Accessibility is a feature to allow easy access for people with disabilities. Your selection is for Physical and Motor disabilitiies.


    Various setting in this panel will alter the way iOS works so that people with disabilities will be able to use the phone. None are on by default.


    There are security trade offs, but for someone with a motor disabilitiy being able to use the device which can be more important in this case, again dependent on the physical limitation.

    @drstrangep0rk yes, I understand that. I used to be able to use assistive touch and the screen would auto lock automatically. Since the update, the auto lock doesn't work anymore with assistive touch running. Assistive touch may be under accessibility feature but you also need to realize that the home button on the iphone is very delicate (breaksdown after about a year of continuous usage usually and costs about 100 USD to repair at the apple store in the US) and we are trying to preserve the button for as long as we can by using the assitive touch function instead.

    I think Apple just fixed it ! Read this atricle that came out today : new-ios-6-app-store-design . I tried the App store search today on apps that always crashed,and they seem to be working now ! But I need to use for a few days to be convinced. And I guess Voice Over works to now.

    Sorry,I went on the wrong forum,but you should know if you are having problems with your App store.

    I'm on an iPhone 5 and the autolock only works infrequently - it's very annoying, because I won't use the phone without the accessibility touch, due to home button always wearing out on earlier models.


    I don't think I should have to retore to a new phone either, I really wish Apple would resolve this rather than users

    having to search fruitlessly for a solution.

    using iP4 and iP4s, having the same issues on auto lock features when the assistive touch is enabled. I use the assistive touch so as not to wear out the home button. I did not have this issue when using iOS 5.1.11.

    I was facing same issue after upgrading to iOS6, tried many settings etc but no luck. today I just tried to turn off assistive touch and then turn it on, now auto-lock is working like before.

  • brendan169 Level 1 (0 points)



    i did the same - when you switch off assistive - auto lock works.


    however, if you switch it on again, and use assistive as your last touch to take you to the home screen auto lock

    doesn't come on.


    it's a small thing, not the end of the world, but annoying on the worlds greatest phone.



  • chlorineapple Level 1 (0 points)

    It's a small thing I admit but it used autolock with assistive touch used to work fine but since the update, it no longer works. I have also noticed other glitches with IOS 6 as well such as app store crashing and maps crashing. I like some of the update features but why is apple releasing such a buggy software when IOS 5.1.1 worked just fine for me. I really can't wait for the new update now as I can't downgrade to IOS 5.1.1 either.

  • brendan169 Level 1 (0 points)



    Agree, - I use assistive to take the pressure off the home button, which always breaks, this is shoddy from Apple



  • nbenroth Level 1 (0 points)

    I use assistive touch as well, and if I "reset all settings" (in the reset menu), it seemed to resolve the issue. It is a little annoyong to have to reset ll of you settings, but at least no personal data is lost.

  • fanium Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes. I have the same issue. I have to turn the assistive touch off. too bad, apple plase fix it asap.



  • piningliwasan Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the same problem with auto-lock. I have a 4S and I use Assistive Touch. Please release a patch that fixes this problem. This is very annoying.
