    Hey there,

    Several times over the last few days, my phone has unlocked and opened in my pocket, with apps opening several times, and a phone call on another...

    I’m at a loss for why this keeps happening, my face is definitely out of sight lol

    Anyone experiencing/ experienced something similar?

    Make sure you have require Attention toggled on in Settings

    It is. Phone has been in dark pockets.

    Do you have a habit of glancing at your device as it goes in your pocket. It only takes a second to pick up your face

    Turning off raise to wake might help with this issue. That way the screen doesnt come on when you move your phone, or go to put it in your pocket. I turned it off on mine in favor of tap-to-wake.

    I haven't had this issue. I always lock the phone and put it in my pocket. I don't see how it could open and start doing apps since it would need to see my face.

    I’m with you. I cannot see how that is happening unless Siri is detecting commands from you. If so, disable “Allow Siri when locked”.

    Raise To Wake may be the most annoying “feature” Apple has ever developed. I can’t turn it off fast enough!!

    ? I have had phones turn on and make calls in my pocket many times ! my iP4 was the worst culprit, mostly ( I think) from being pressed on a handkerchief.

    I am w/ Mumfoau -- never had it happen... but I don't put anything with my phone. Maybe that is why?
