First, let’s take a look at how to increase the lock screen time on an iPhone.

You can choose aywhere from 30 seconds up to 5 minutes, depending on what you’re comfortable with.

Now that we know how to increase our iPhone’s lock screen time, let’s explore some of the benefits of doing so. The main benefit is that it makes it more convenient for you to use your phone without having to constantly unlock it. This can be especially helpful if you have a lot of apps installed on your device and don’t want them all locked out when you’re done using them. Additionally, increased lock screen time can help protect against unauthorized access in case someone were to try and gain access to your device while it was unlocked.
