How to Fix Dim Screen of Your iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
- Reboot Your iPhone: More often than not, I'm able to fix some minor issues like app crashing or freezing just by rebooting my device. Hence, I would recommend you to give your device a quick reboot to get rid of this problem. Simply press and hold the Home button and ON/OFF button at once until you see Apple logo on the screen. (On iPhone 7/7 Plus, press and hold Volume Down+Power Button)
- Make sure to adjust brightness level properly: Swipe up from the bottom bezel of the screen and drag the brightness slider to the right/left in order to set the brightness perfectly.
Solution #1: Turn Off Auto-Brightness
Launch Settings app → Tap on Display & Brightness.
Solution #2: Disable Reduce Transparency
Launch Settings app again → Tap on Transparency.
Tap on Accessibility → Tap on Increase Contrast.
Solution #3: Disable Reduce White Point
When you turn on Reduce White Point, it lowers the intensity of bright colors. Turn it off.
Settings → General → Accessibility → Display Accommodation → Turn off the switch next to Reduce White Point.
Solution 4: Turn off Invert Colors, Color Filters
Have you enabled Invert Colors and Color Filters on your device? If yes, turn them off.
Settings → General → Accessibility → Display Accommodations → Now, turn off the switch next to Invert Color.
Settings → General → Accessibility → Display Accommodations → Color Filters and turn off the switch.
Solution #5: Ambient Light Sensor
Sometimes, dim brightness problem occurs due to malfunction of the ambient light sensor. The ambient light sensor enhances the iPhone to adopt the different lighting conditions so that if you are in dark room or place, it brightens your screen to have the clear view and when your phone is exposed to sunlight or it is under any bright light, it gets dim to provide you the clear view.
At times, the ambient light sensor does not work when you lock or unlock the screen of your iPhone. So, try to lock/unlock the iPhone and look for the result. Or, the other problem may be that the iPhone case or dirt may not allow it work properly. Therefore, remove the case from your iPhone and clean it properly. We hope, this method might resolve this issue.

Solution #6: Turn Off Zoom
Turn off Zoom as it might be the culprit. Some users reported having solved this issue after turning it off.

Launch Settings app → Tap on General → Scroll down and tap on Reset → Tap on Reset All Settings → Confirm in the pop-up.
Solution #8: Go for the Kill
If none of the above-mentioned tricks have been able to solve the problem, then update your iOS device to the latest version. Software Update can help you fix it. Settings → General → Software Update.
