Auto-Brightness is a highly user-friendly feature that automatically adjusts the brightness of your device by particular environments.

In the latest iOS version, it no longer resides in its usual place under Display & Brightness section. So, where has it gone? Follow this quick guide to enable/disable Auto-Brightness in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad to improve your viewing experience.
