Hello folks, ever since I have upgraded to 10, I notice that my screen turns on every now and then without reason. I thought maybe I touch a sensor or something, but no. Any ideas?

The same things happens with mine, unfortunately I have no idea why. Best guess is the best knocked it, or whatever it's laying on slightly and it's triggered the raise to wake action

This has happened to all of my devices over the years. I have even caught long press home button voice command menu turning on by itself.

There is a "Raise to Wake" feature with iOS 10, try leaving your phone lying flat and watch it for a while to determine if the behavior continues.

What device are we talking about? Does the screen turn on for a moment and the device is locked and there's nothing on the screen? Does it happen when you are holding or moving it or when it's just lying down on its own?

The same thing happens to me, I don't even touch the iPhone so raise to wake can't happen but sometimes it turns on even when I have no notifications.

You want to say that phone screen turns on without any movement when it lay down on the table ? Must be motion coprocessor malfunction. If you have it turned off - also you should visit Apple Store
