Auto shutoff, iPhone 6

I recently got an iPhone6. I used to have an iPhone 4s.

On the 4s, if automatically shut down after some period of activity (5 min?).

I can't figure out how to make the iPhone 6 do that. I have to turn it off manually with the right side button (sounds like a switch click when pressed).

That's not terrible, but sounds like a backward step.

Is there a way ti do that on an iPhone 6?

Thanks

Set the Auto Lock as per above. I don't think there is any setting to auto power off (shut right down). This needs to be done manually.

Fine, how do I unlock it?

On the iPhone 4s, I just swiped that "slide to unlock".

I don't want to have to enter a password every time. Oh so maybe you are saying it works like that?

I don't want to do that until I'm sure there is no password. Don't want to get it locked & be unable to unlock because I don't know the password.

Thanks

If you have a password lock, you must enter it EVERY time you unlock and EVERY time your power up.

You can try removing the password, but the phone will bark at you. I just got used to it.

You should be able to set up Touch ID to not have to always enter in a passcode.
See here. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201371

To turn off passcode:

Settings
Touch ID & Passcode
Enter in your passcode
'Turn Passcode Off'
or
Adjust any other necessary passcode settings to your preference.

I took a chance & set lock time for 5 minutes.

It worked.

Thanka
