Hello there!
I have a question about autolock.

Is it possible to turn off autolock for a single app?
(So the screen doesn't turn black.)

I don't wanna have to do it in settings every time...

//Thx for the help!

Auto lock & screen going dark are 2 different things. Screen going dark saves the battery. Auto lock guards your privacy, etc. What's the use case for the app?

yes, that's the problem... It would be really cool if it was possible to set different auto lock times for different apps...
I agree. I use a hearing app called iHear. I have new hearing aids coming soon, but this app helps in the mean time. I set auto lock to never when I use iHear. But I have to remember to put it back on 1 minute. I usually notice if I forget.

Makes total sense, although I have my iPhone with me 24/7 no matter what. :)
At home I set it down to do things. I may put it in my pocket like that. I don't take my phone to the bathroom at home. Too many folks drop theirs in the toilet. I haven't yet figured out how they manage doing that, but I don't want to find out the hard way. Away from home, it is with me at all times.
