    What level brightness do you leave your iPad/iPad mini on? Is auto brightness on or off?

    What does auto brightness even do?

    I left it around 40-50 with auto b on but i dont know if its a bug or sumthing because the screen don't dim as much as i expected.
  3. macrumors 6502

    50-65% with auto brightness on.

    Auto brightness will automatically adjust the brightness for you depending on the setting you are in. (Outside, indoors, etc)

    I leave it around 60% and I don't usually adjust it.

    Night time in bed, with a small side table lamp on, ~25%

    Daytime 75-100%, depending on visibility.
  6. macrumors 6502

    About 20% at night reading in bed and the rest around 50-75 with auto brightness

    I have mine set to auto brightness, but you dont have an option for that.
  8. macrumors 65816

    I switch a bit back and forth between about 40% and auto brightness. I generally like it a bit dim, especially when I'm reading pdf documents.
  9. macrumors 68040

    50% with auto brightness off. I adjust if necessary.

    OK, I had a question if I have my Auto-Brightness on whould I drag the Brightness Adjustment Slider all the way down to Zero ? Or Should I leave it half the way in between or where exactly ?
  11. macrumors regular

    Correct me if im wrong but i think it doesn't matter where you put the slider till, if you have auto-brightness turn on. The screen detects light and will adjust accordingly. So let's say even if you set the slider to 0 with auto brightness turned on, if you're under the sun you could see the slider auto adjust it to maximum brightness.
  12. macrumors 6502a

    Nope I have noticed this, If you bring the Brightness Slider to Zero and even if you keep the Auto-Brightness on. The screen becomes very dim versus when I keep the Slider half the way. This is in the same light conditions.

    So I am not sure where the slider should be ? When the Auto-Brightness is tuned on ?

    I leave mine on at 50% and use auto-brightness.
  15. macrumors 65816


    Max Brightness. I'll turn it down a nudge while I'm reading something in iBooks.
  16. macrumors regular

    In normal indoor light I'm at around 35-40%, but I use auto-brightness and that turns it up and down.
  17. macrumors 68020

    Yep, I can't understand how people can even enjoy the display if it is at 100% brightness... indoors!
  18. macrumors 68040


    60% with auto brightness on. :apple:

    100% during the day, 0% at night.
  20. macrumors regular

    50% with brightness on.

    It's not a bug - it's just a slight change to how it works. If you set it in normal light to what you want in normal light, and then you set it in dim light to what you want in dim light then it should adjust back and forth automatically.
  23. macrumors regular

    I use all my idevices at 100%...wow im a minority...
  24. macrumors 68020


    I use auto-brightness. It works perfect for me.
