    Just a quick question -

    Can you help me figure something? Place a call anywhere with your phone on a table or your hand. When you place you finger above the earpiece over the proximity sensor, does the screen go black immediately or about half a second or so later after your finger touches the spot?

    Thanks a lot. I just got a new 6S and wondering if the proximity sensor is broken or if it's the same for all of em.

    It is hard to tell. My screen goes blank as my hand approaches the sensor.

    Even if yours were a half second, what difference does it make as long as it works?:rolleyes:

    Because I just got it brand new and I'd like to figure out if the sensor is faulty.

    Can you move your finger quickly and place it over the sensor?

    This is happening to me. Is there a fix for this? It's like when I start typing or doing something using my hands, i have to pause. When the screen comes back on, I have to be quick otherwise my hand will set the sensor and the screen will go back to black and it's annoying.

    There has always been a delay, presumably to stop it triggering accidentally if you brush the sensor. Nothing to worry about and no way to change it. As far as I know, even the newest devices do this.
