iPhone Tap to Wake and phone locking

I’ve had this problem in the past where an iPhone in my pocket would lock me out for 5 or 10 minutes. Turning off Tap to Wake fixes the problem, but makes the phone less convenient to use. I noticed that this happens when I’m wearing shorts, not so much with long pants. I guess the phone is closer to my leg and the screen is getting tapped more?

Anyway, are there any tips to having the iPhone in my pocket and tap to wake on?

I keep my phone in my pocket with the screen facing out for this reason. It’s probably the most counter-cultural thing I do…


Thanks, I’ll give that a try.
