The Auto-brightness on iPhone automatically adjusts brightness levels based on the light conditions around you. For example, it increases brightness in dark conditions and lowers it under a properly-lit environment. You can disable this option if you have little or no use for it though.
How do you turn off auto-brightness on iPhone?
iOS devices use an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness levels based on the light conditions around you. Although good, it can cause battery drain. So, if you are running low on battery, the best option would be to disable this setting present under the Accessibility’ section. In case its hideous location is driving you nuts, here’s how to find and disable it.
- Go to Settings.
- Select the Accessibility option.
- Choose the Display & Text Size option.
- Set the toggle for the Auto-brightness option to the Off position.
- Exit Settings.
- The option will be disabled permanently.
The toggle for auto-brightness on iPhone no more appears under the ‘Display & Brightness section. So many people may not find it. This, however, doesn’t mean the feature has been wiped out completely. Follow this post to find out how to turn off iPhone auto-brightness completely.
Disable iPhone auto-brightness
On your iPhone, go to the ‘Settings’ app and scroll down until you find the ‘Accessibility’ tab.
Tap it to open the tab.
When the Accessibility page opens, choose ‘Display & Text Size’ in the first section.
Scroll down to locate the ‘Auto-brightness’ option. It should be visible to you at the very bottom of the page.
Simply toggle the slider to the ‘Off’ position. The feature will be instantly disabled.
Hereafter, your iPhone should no longer change the brightness automatically. You need to disable it since the feature is on by default.
Kindly note that the iPod touch doesn’t support this feature.
Hope that makes sense!
