How to Disable Auto-Brightness on iPhone and iPad

Auto-Brightness feature doesn't always work as expected. Thus, you may want to turn off Auto-Brightness on your iOS device to prevent the ambient sensor from lowering or increasing the brightness without your nod.

Thanks to the built-in ambient light sensor, iOS automatically adjusts the brightness of your iPhone depending on the light conditions. For example, when you are in a dark environment, it will dim the display, and when there is light, it will raise the brightness.

When auto-brightness works perfectly, it not only enhances your viewing experience but also cuts down unnecessary battery consumption. However, it doesn’t always deliver the desired result. If this is the case on your iPhone, you may want to disable auto-brightness on your iOS device. Let me walk you through the quick steps!
