My 2 week old iPhone 8 won’t lock automatically after the set limit of 30 seconds. My phone remains unlocked until I physically press the lock screen button.

Even then, if the screen is touched, the display wont turn off itself.

How can I get my autolock screen function to work?

I had the same problem with my iphone 8 and this morning kept googling answers thinking it was a major problem. Then I have restarted the phone and it now works. Should have done this first! lol
