The lock screen is still used to lock the phone otherwise the screen will stay on indefinitely. Once you unlock the screen it should go back to what you were doing before. You can adjust the auto-lock setting (in display settings) but that would keep the screen on too.No. It only asks for a passcode after the "Require Passcode" time setting has expired. If I wake up the phone before that time, it just goes to the screen I explained.
If the phone goes to sleep then when it wakes up it shows the lock screen first. This is basically there so that if the screen turns on on it's own in the pocket or purse, for example, random things don't get activated. The only way to avoid that in stock iOS is to change things so that the phone doesn't lock on its own, but then the screen would stay on too.I just want to wake the phone up, and jump right back to what I was doing. Right now it shows the clock screen, and I have to press home again. Is there any way to do this without turning off passcodes?
