    On my iPhone 6, when I go to the Settings app and then General > Autolock, the only options I am given are:

    1 minute
    2 minutes
    3 minutes
    4 minutes
    5 minutes
    Never

    :confused:

    I'm sure pre iOS 8, there were options of 1 hour and 2 hours as well?

    Can anyone confirm what options they have on their phones?

    Do you have any Exchange accounts or potentially other (corporate) profiles on the phone? Those can have some control over what sort of auto-lock and passcode options you have.

    So do people have Exchange accounts and/or corporate profiles? Again, those can control the options that are offered independent of iOS version and a lot of the times that's how different people end up having somewhat different options.

    Mine is the same, but I don't have "never". I get corporate email. You probably do too. So the MDM software used by your company is likely limiting or changing your options.

    Hi DinoF


    I have 5 minutes ticked on mine.

    However I'm sure I've seen a jail break tweak at some point.

    Google "iOS 6 autolock duration" and "iOS 7 autolock duration". Videos for both iOS's show the same duration that you are reporting so it's been like that since iOS 6.

    That wasn't Auto Lock; that was another setting found under the Passcode section (it was the "Require passcode" duration).

    I can't understand why this has been changed for the life of me? I should be able to set a delayed locked response of my choosing, whether I use Touch ID or not.

    ....actually yea - you could be right!! My setting under Passcode now ONLY shows 'Immediately' though? Where are the rest of the times (...2 hours, 4 hours, etc)??

    Can someone clarify then - what is 'Autolock' and what is Passcode' (aren't the 2 settings the same)?

    Do you have TouchID enabled? If so, that's the only setting that's there associated with it.

    Auto lock is simply the time when the screen turns off on its own, while passcode is the time when the need to enter a passcode to unlock kicks in.
