Lock Screen Stops Meditation on Apple Devices

Does your meditation stop or pause after the screen goes dark and locks? We've got a fix for that!

This is an issue with one of Apple's native apps, like Music or Podcasts, trying to access audio in the background and it's controlled on the iPhone itself. 

The solution here is to force quit all open apps on your phone. 

  1. On an iPhone X or later or an iPad with iOS 12+, from the Home screen, swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause slightly in the middle of the screen. On an iPhone 8 or earlier, double-click the Home button to show your most recently used apps
  2. Swipe up on each app's preview to close the app. 

In most cases, taking this action once resolves the issue permanently but if it happens again please try repeating these steps.

For more information and a video of how to force quit an app, see this support article: Apple Support: How to Force Quit an App.


If you try this and you're still having trouble with the app or if you have any other questions, please email us at support@tenpercent.com.
