My iPhone sleeps if I don't touch the screen for 30 seconds while watching videos.
It dims, and then sleeps.
I think that started in the last week.
It happens while watching videos in Safari, Netflix, and other apps.
I'm on 10.3.1.
How do I fix it?!

Try a restart with home + lock buttons held down until you see the Apple logo. Wake/lock + volume down if its an iPhone 7 I believe.

Do you have low power mode enabled? (battery color would be light orange and not green regardless of charge level).

This happens to me sometimes when i am watching videon through safari but not on all sites for some reason
I don't remember this hapenning in previous versions of iOS 10.
When did you notice it?
This is so annoying, and even more stupid, can't see a single reason for Apple to do this. At least, give us an option to disable it.

Did you upgrade your device through OTA? Try to restore it using iTunes. Don't forget to take a backup.
