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 to work properly. Therefore, remove the case from your iPhone and clean it properly. We hope, this method might resolve this issue.
