    Is there a base level for auto brightness and how do you set it? Like in normal daylight inside a room you setup a brightness level and in darker or brighter conditions auto brightness adjusts relative to the room condition. I have tried adjusting the brightness but auto feature somehow changes it to what it wants not what I set.

    Eureka! After having jumped thru the min brightness/max brightness adjustment hoops several times in the past year, I followed the instructions in Link #1. (Turn OFF Auto-Bright, drag slider all the way down to least possible setting, go into a dark room and then turn Auto-Bright back ON.) I now have an iPhone 5 & iPad 4 (iOS 6) and iPad Mini-r (iOS 7) all working properly in the brightness department for the first time ever. Thanks. :)

    I've never had problems with auto brightness. Ever.

    Don't have to do any calibration or anything special. I have auto brightness on and in a dark room I set the desired brightness.

    From then on that is the minimum brightness and it never fails.

    Lucky you. I've burned my retinas in the wee hours more times than I can count. :( Particularly nuclear when awakened from sleep. :mad:

    Wow. This is the second thing I've learned today. :D My wife and I had given up on auto brightness because it never worked for us. I just did the dark room thing and now I see the slider slowly creep up when I turn on the lights. Sheesh.
