    Just noticed and have done a complete restore on 3 devices that 7.1 Beta 3 after a reboot disables Auto-Brightness and you have to turn it back on every time you restart your phone.

    Confirmed on 2 iPhone 5's and 1 5s all experiencing the same behaviour (issue wasn't there in 7.1 Beta 2)

    If anyone has a solution please share :D

    I hope you're submitting bug reports to Apple.

    Just rebooted both iPhone 5's and I cannot reproduce your bug. Auto-brightness is on and working fine. Sorry. Also, when I restored, I setup the phones as new, didn't restore from a backup.

    In my experience they ask for further info and stackshots, much easier just to moan about it casually here ;)

    I noticed my Auto Brightness was off on my 5S. I just upgraded from B2 to B3. I rebooted my phone by holding home and sleep button and auto brightness stayed on. I did the slide to power off and turned it back on and auto brightness is off..

    Even if you just make the motion to shut it down, but cancel without sliding, it disables auto brightness.

    Honestly, this isn't the worst bug iOS has ever had. :)

    I couldn't consistently repeat that on my phone. Sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't.

    Yeah, seems like resetting (using the lock and home buttons together) doesn't affect it, while shutting down and starting up again (just using the lock button and the power off slider) actually disables the auto-brightness setting for some reason.

    It is something to do with the new "slide to power off" screen.

    Why do you think that's related to a visual redesign of a page (given that it's really just a visual change and functionally not much would have needed to change for it)? I mean there can certainly be something there, but it can just as easily (if not more so) be related to something else.

    Really? Just because when you shutdown and restart (not even when you reset)--which the vast majority would rarely do to begin with--you might need to just simply quickly re-enable it?

    Might be something to do with the sliding bar fading out the screen. Give it a try. Sometimes you don't even have to reboot the phone for the auto brightness to shut off. Just bringing up this screen does it. I couldn't consistently produce it, but it did do it sometimes without actually powering off.

    Interesting, in a strange way...if that's the case, then, yeah, it could certainly be related to that.

    I just filed a bug report in Apple's developer bug portal. They don't give much feedback, but they will mark it as new, dupe, known issue, etc when they get to it.

    Definitely related to the brightness fade when turning off the phone. Probably temporarily disables it and forgets to turn in it back on after. No biggie.
