    Reply message at lock screen
    Can anyone teach me how to reply the message at lock screen? I tick the "Reply the Message", but it is not working. Apps such as Whatsapp, Inbox

    Receive whatsapp from sender. But the sender name display at lock screen is not my contact name, it shows sender's customised name
    Any solutions? Coz I do not know who is sending me the message when i look at the lock screen

    Can I view or reply message shows at the lock screen without key in passcode once again

    Q. How to restore the android data to my new iPhone

    When setting up your iPhone you should've seen the option to transfer from android. It'll connect to that app and transfer your info over.

    Q. Wifi will be automatically disconnected when the screen off

    No it won't disconnect with the screen off.

    The way Apple security is set up, you can't reply to messages without unlocking the phone. And I'm happy about it. I wouldn't want random people in my house reading or replying to messages without my knowledge because they were able to bypass the locked state of my iPhone.

    I'm having that same issue with what's app but I was with my 5 also so I'm not sure if their new update made that an issue or not.

    In order to reply on the lock screen, go to Settings>Touch ID & Passcode, scroll down to "allow access when locked:" Turn on the reply with message.
    It works on my 6S+.

    That is incorrect. You can indeed reply to messages from the lock screen, especially if you have a recent version of iOS.

    The aforementioned apps have to have that ability. If not, then those apps will not be able to. That restriction has nothing to do with the device.

    Receive whatsapp from sender. But the sender name display at lock screen is not my contact name, it shows sender's customised name
    Any solutions? Coz I do not know who is sending me the message when i look at the lock screen
    That's a WhatsApp issue. Check the app's settings or the website's support section.

    Can I view or reply message shows at the lock screen without key in passcode once again
    I reply message frequently. Feel troublesome that i need to key in passcode or thumb print when I need to reply message
    Yes, you can.

    Your device should remain connected while the screen is off, but if it does not, it'll immediately reconnect.

    Sorry. Was unaware that you could do that. I've had many iPhones and so does everyone around me and I haven't seen anyone use it accept for people with jail broken phones. I apologize for the misinformation.

    Can you explain how to me? I followed his directions above but when I get messages, it allows me to swipe left and there's an x or swipe right and unlock the phone. I don't see a reply option without unlocking the phone.

    I assuming its not allowing my friends and I to do that because we don't have our message previews on so we would have to unlock the phone to read the message anyway.

    Thanks for correcting my wrong answer.

    I would think this is a given...you definitely have to have your message preview open in order to respond to a message from the lock screen.
