[iOS][Browse] Remove Autolock while charging

Revert the change that removed the screen staying on while plugged into charge. This feature was ideal when driving so you could see what was on without having to touch phone. At home this was great to display on phone/ipad so everyone could use spotify rather than having to pass them to somebody to unlock. Removing this has no benefit and makes the app a lot more unpractical. This change should have been made as an option for the user to decide wether they wanted to lock or not. 

 

Any solutions provided involve using another app for this feature to work. This is not a solution.

Adding a toggle will help. Those who want their phone to sleep after 30 seconds, and those who want it to stay on while charging. I personally would prefer it stay on while charging. Please fix this.
