I guess only you will know if it overrides Britney's settings?So I was wondering, do most of you use auto brightness or not? I have always left it on and had the brightness set to 50%. By having it on, I guess it overrides the Britney's setting?
This. First time I saw it "working" this way I wondered if I was seeing the light/bright/leaking/etc issues I read about here all the time on my till that moment perfect iPad.I use it on both my iPhone and iPad.
I have both devices set to about 60%.
If it is bright out when I unlock the brightness will increase to compensate.
If it is dark when I unlock the brightness will decrease.
If I walk into a dark area from outside the brightness will decrease not to blind you.
Works great for me.
I have to agree. The auto-brightness feature on the iPad is ridiculously inefficient. Apple's software engineers need to go back to the drawing board and completely re-code it because its functionality is non-existent as it stands now.I find it useless. Would rather have complete control.
Mine adjusts after being on for any amount of time. Example it is dark. My iPad has been on for at least 10 minutes. I shine a light on the sensor and the screen gets brighter. I was mistaken earlier when I said it darkens I meant the other way around.note that the auto-brightness feature does NOT continuously adjust the screen brightness, as you might expect. it appears to only adjust the brightness based on the ambient light level just after waking from sleep/unlock.
if the ambient light level changes after the first few seconds the iPad is wakened, the screen brightness will not change again until the next sleep/wake cycle
if you don't think the auto brightness setting is doing anything, you can test it in a bright room by covering the ambient light sensor (it's located just above the front-facing camera) while your iPad is asleep, then awaken it (slide to unlock, if necessary). with sensor covered, the iPad will wake with a slightly dimmed screen. If instead you test it in a darkened room and wake the iPad with a flashlight pointed at the sensor, the screen backlight will be brighter than normal.
