    The phone isn't unlocked. That's a misleading and click bait video as well as forum post. Color me unimpressed.

    First of all, this is not unlocking the phone at all. This is using settings that the user has left enabled (or even enabled themselves) in the Touch ID & Passcode settings under the "Allow Access when locked" section and in Settings -> Siri. Since he does not show those specific settings in the video, I'm assuming he has at least the following enabled:

    Settings -> Siri -> Access on Lock Screen -> Enabled
    Settings -> Touch ID & Passcode -> Reply with Message -> Enabled

    Additionally he has Control Center accessible on the lock screen as well. (Settings -> Control Center -> Access on Lock Screen)

    It's probably recommended to keep these settings disabled, or at the very least disable access to Siri from the lock screen.

    So you don't take advantage of "hey Siri" then?

    I dont use that either.
    I found that if the phone actively always listens for the "Hey Siri" voice command then the battery seems to drain faster.

    I don't think keeping Hey Siri on decreases battery life. The Coprocessor which is required for Hey Siri is always 'running'. It would be running regardless if Hey Siri is enabled or not. I have not noticed a decrease in battery life from it.

    OP, you should check the definition of 'unlocked' :rolleyes:. Even in the video, you can see the locked icon at the top of the device.

    As others have said, the phone isn't unlocked and it's working as designed. But I'll give the OP the benefit of the doubt and assume he just copied the YouTube video title. ;)

    I'm quite pleased with the battery life of my 7 (NOT PLUS) running 10.1.1

    View attachment 663554
    SPOILER: 9+ hrs of usage and 37+ hrs of standby

    I have push accounts enabled, some background refresh on, and I only kill apps that ignore the background refresh toggle. I also have about 3 dots or signal all day and keep auto brightness on.

    Interesting, I thought something like that would put an added strain on the battery. Exactly how much Im not sure but since I never use it I ended up turning it off.

    Accidentally trigger it? You say "Hey Siri" a lot in regular conversation?

    Yeah, not sure why it said that. Here's another example.

    Great cherry-picking though. On-point.

    Agreed. That seems likely to me.
