    Double Tap will. Glance won't. There's some problem with the type of screen used in the 929/930. Nokia is trying to figure out a way around the limitation but nothing yet.
    Daniel wrote an article about it.
    I keep seeing posters on here saying that double tap will be a wp8.1 feature. I'm wondering if it'll come with 8.1 from Microsoft? Or with Cyan from Nokia?

    Seriously, the 930 is an awesome phone. But my most used feature is the glance screen. Especially to look at notifications. Lack of this feature is the only thing making me re think whether I should buy this or not in the future.

    umm I just read it somewhere on the forums, all phones with at least amber update, going into 8.1 will have double tap to wake.

    Does Nokia have a patent on 'double tap to wake'? A quick search of Google Patents didn't find anything relevant assigned to Nokia. (Not trying to make a point, just interested)
    Yes, I believe so. They patented it in the times of the N9. It was developed by the engineers that have meanwhile left Nokia and formed Jolla.

    I see just as much info on my Glance screen as I do on the Lock screen: Message notifications, battery state, details of next Calendar appointment etc.

    You know that if you pick up the phone or move it by holding it near the bottom it does *not* wake up the Glance screen? Just stay away from the camera.
    I have WhatsApp on my lockscreen. I can see messages there right away in case they show up and read part of them to see if it's urgent. Glance only shows icons.
    Also, I know about that. I just don't like Glance nor find practical at all. Simple.
    We can't all like the same things ;)

    I don't know if it's a 8.1 feature as I don't have access to 8.1. It was a firmware feature on higher end WP8 devices but I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft had integrated the technology into 8.1 itself. Unlike Glance, Double-Tap to wake isn't actually restricted by the hardware on the phones.

    There's a word for attitudes like that. Not a very nice one. Look at some statistics from the US patent office: List of top United States patent recipients - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    very nice but where is Apple?

    Does anyone have a reference to this patent? I couldn't find anything on Google Patents, but not everything is easy to find there.
    If Nokia have such a patent, they may have cross-licensed it to other companies already. Cross licensing is quite common - two companies bundle up a load of patents and agree not to sue each other over them. The best stuff is rarely included, but relatively minor 'inventions' like this might be, especially if Nokia had no plans to use it in a product.

    That list applies to all patents, not just mobile, telecoms and computing (Apple's main lines of business). Apple participate in many fewer markets than the companies at the top of the list and they don't have a large 'research' division, so it's not surprising that they don't appear.
    I would not link the number of patent filings to a company's 'innovativeness' too closely. Business models vary and depending what you are aiming to achieve, there are other ways to protect inventions which may be more appropriate in some cases.

    I was messing around with a Nexus 5 this weekend, and yesterday. I had no idea how important dttw was to me until now. I hate to say it, but reaching for the power button to wake the screen seems to antiquated.

    I don't know what this means...

    But yeah, I agree. Now if only WPCentral could confirm that the Icon will get double tap to wake...

    depends on your carrier, could be this month or could be in 2 months before cyan is rolled out, so I think gdr1 for dev will come to most before cyan, unless ms include cyan in the gdr1 update.

    I have a Lumia 930 for past week. Great phone. 8.1 and cyan installed. dttw was working up until yesterday, but now isn't running. I don't think I've changed any settings, but very annoying now that it is not working. Anybody any ideas how to resolve? Option has been switched on and off, phone has been on and off, battery saver switched off, touch sensitivity reduced and increased.
