If True Tone is on does the brightness setting not stay fixed?

    I have True Tone on and have upped the brightness once or twice. I can almost swear when I checked later or the next day, the brightness slider was lowered. Is this how it is supposed to work? So if I want high brightness, I have to turn True Tone off?

    you probably have Auto Brightness turned on.

    Settings-> General-> Accessibility-> Display Accommodations-> Auto Brightness (toggle)

    Thanks! Now the whites really are bright! I wonder why that toggle is hidden in a deep sub-menu.

    The theory behind Apple burying the auto-brightness toggle is that having high brightness on all the time may increase the likelihood of burn-in on the screen. Under the toggle in Settings, it seems like Apple has added “long-term display performance” to the explanation under what could be affected by turning off auto-brightness.

    I think it's 'hidden' because Apple wants to encourage customers to keep using it. Since a month or so I decided to finally use auto brightness for the first time ever, and I have to say it's very convenient, works amazingly well and has definitely improved my battery life.

    Yeah but I kinda hate auto brightness. But now it looks like Apple is trying to scare us with burn in, with out explicitly saying it(Long term performance as above). Decision, decisions...
