    Not sure if this is an iOS 8 or iPad air 2 thing but auto brightness actually works! As in, when it gets dim in the room the screen goes dim. Before it always got brighter but never dimmed on its own.

    You wanna know the most amazing part about that? The iPod Touch 5th generation didn't have auto brightness because it was "too thin", but the iPad Air 2 is the same thickness!

    This reminds me of the first ipod nano that had a camera, it could only take video, not pictures, because it too was too thin. I think Apple just cares more about their ipads than there ipods, that and technology moves on and is made thinner.

    The iPod is dead, expect it to only be refreshed if they can make it cheaper, otherwise expect it to disappear in a year or two.

    It was an intentional choice that the brightness can only increase rather than decrease with auto-brightness.

    It's very frustrating to accidentally cover or have a shadow cast on the light sensor and have the screen dim while you are using it.

    Are you sure that it's not just dimming when idle? If the display dims or sleeps, it is allowed to "wake" at a lower brightness.

    i dont remember apple ever stating that they had to remove it because its too thin. sounds more like an excuse from the fanbase.
