Canot change Auto-Lock as its Greyed Out and stuck at 30 seconds on iPhone [Solved]

The auto-Lock feature on most mobile phones is very useful since we forget to lock the screen if we are not using it and it drains the battery if left unlocked. So most users set the auto-lock feature to the lowest possible time duration on their iPhones. After the auto-lock set duration time of inactivity, it locks the iPhone and the user needs to authenticate before unlocking it again.

But many iPhone users have reported that whenever they go to change the auto-lock duration on their iPhone, they see that this feature is greyed out and set to 30 seconds automatically. They are now not able to change it to any other duration.

On researching this issue further, we get to know that the lower power mode when enabled on any iPhone, will automatically set the auto-lock feature to 30 seconds and will not let the user change it.

In this article, we will show you how you can fix the Auto-Lock Greyed Out and Set to 30 seconds problem in iPhones.
