Lock / Unlock

If the iOS device is in a case that has a cover, disable the Lock / Unlock setting so the device does not turn off when the cover is closed. That way, the hub or clients do not disconnect. Note that this feature only appears in the Display & Brightness Settings once the case is on.

  1. In 'Settings', tap 'Display & Brightness'.
  2. Tap to toggle 'Lock / Unlock' off.
