    Since I have been wearing my watch and actually using it quite a bit throughout the day, any time I pull my phone out of my pocket I raise it to my face expecting the screen to activate. It is now getting quite disappointing that there is no feature allowing this since I've really gotten used to it on the Watch.

    What I do hope happens in a future iOS update is for Apple to release an option to activate the phone with a raise from a position like the Watch.

    Something not only as simple as the Watch, but say you can choose a few options for how you normally use your phone. Since I almost always keep my phone in my pocket with the charging port facing upwards, there would need to be two significant movements to allow the phone to activate. One would obviously be for the proximity sensor to know the phone is out of pocket, and then the motion of bringing the phone to reading level.

    There could be options Apple includes for everyone that covers the way we all carry our phones, and of course the simple activation feature like on Watch would be available.

    Just a quick thought.

    Do you have TouchID? I keep my iPhone 6 upside down in my pocket (screen facing inward) and grab it with my thumb on the home button to take it out, and it's unlocked by the time I can see the screen.

    I'd rather use my thumb to make sure I have a firm grip around the phone while bringing it out of my pocket. Many close calls even with a good grip.

    Basically I use want the phone to wake up. No external manipulations a required.
