    My phone is not going into sleep mode and I cannot figure out why. I'm looking for the auto lock in settings to see if it's just not set to go off quickly enough, but it is NOT in the list under general where it should be.

    Am I missing something?

    Settings/Display & Brightness/Auto-Lock

    (I'm too slow again :) )

    Yes, you are not looking at "where it should be".

    And if you are looking for Auto-Brightness in IOS 11, that's moved too! It's now under Settings, General, Accessibility, Display Accommodations. Of all the places to hide it....

    Any setting can be found using the handy search bar within Settings itself fyi.

    Wow - thanks! That is NOT where it told me to go when I searched this on Google, unless I just wasn't looking up the right info. And also, I tried searching on my phone - didn't realize there was a handy search bar in settings, but now I surely do see it!

    The page found via google was probably displaying info on where it was located at earlier iOS versions.

    Yeah, it's always a good idea to include the iOS version number when you're googling for things like that.
