    I have an iPhone 5 version 6.0.1. When I go to Settings> General> Accessibility and turn on the Assistive Touch. My lock screen is set to lock in 1 minute of inactivity but there are times that it will not do an auto lock. Therefore my screen is ON the whole time.

    Can anyone else confirm that this is a bug?

    iPhone 3GS on 6.0.1 with Assistive Touch turned on. No experience of said issue. But with Assistive Touch, the iPhone screen will light up longer when you turn it on or when a notification arrives.

    Thanks for the input but there are times that my screen does not turn off at all even after my 1 minute lock screen is suppose to kick in.

    Maybe you can try resetting the Auto-lock setting and see what happens.

    Yeah I think I've seen other people post about this issue. It happens with me too...super annoying especially because I like to leave Assistive Touch on all the time. Sigh....really hope a software update fixing this is issued ASAP.

    I tried the Restore from iTunes but that did not solve the issue. The bug seems to appear after I click the Home button from the Assistive touch where u see the 4 icons (Home, Siri, Device and Favorite buttons.) My screen stays ON the whole time and not going on Auto Lock.
