I was told by a member of the Tech Homie Squad. That the only way that they can see the clock on their iPhone is by either pressing the power button, or home button on their iPhone. While this is one way to check your clock, I’ve got another way to make it a little easier for you.

You can use the “Raise to Wake” feature on your iPhone to skip having to press any buttons to check the time, or anything else for that matter. All you have to do is just pick up your phone to wake up the screen. Here’s how to do it:

1: Press the settings icon on your iPhone. (looks like a gear)
2: Look for “Display and Brightness”.
3: Press the switch by “Raise to Wake” to turn the feature on.
4: Enjoy using your fingers just a little less than you had to before!

Here’s a video for a little guidance:
