It's a good idea, but I get my work email on my phone, so turning off auto-lock probably won't work. You mentioned this isn't an issue for your iPhone 6+, is the phone reading your fingerprint to unlock? If not, perhaps I'm experiencing a glitch since I used to be able to do this, and now can't. I assumed it was a security update.
Is there a way to create an EN note using Siri while the iOS device is locked? The key to this is being as handsfree as possible since I need this while driving. I used to be able to hold the home button to activate Siri, then say "send an email to myself." I'd choose my EN address, dictate the subject and message, and I'd have the note sitting in my designated notebook. Then something changed with the iOS and I'm unable to do that now; Siri asks me to unlock my screen, which I'd like to avoid while driving. I have an iPhone 5, therefore no touch ID/fingerprint feature. Does anyone know of another way to do this? Thanks!
