    I'm going to get an iPhone soon, and I was wondering what are these sensors for, near the speaker.

    They turn the display off when you hold the phone beside your ear take a call.

    And they automatically adjust the screen brightness depending on the lighting level of the room/place you're in.

    If you are gonna get a case for the iphone, make sure it doesn't cover the sensors
