    Both my iPhone 5s and my iPad Air is having an issue when playing videos. Just after I start a video, the picture seems to over-expose. The screen-light does not go higher, but the video gets kind of too white. If I tap to get the pause/duration layout up, it calms down again to normal. I am absolutely sure this is not the videos, because when I am using the YouTube-app, the duration-dot normally has a grey center. When the over-exposure happens, the duration-dot is all white. You can not see the grey center until a couple of seconds later.
    The problem occurs whether the picture is bright or dark. It calms down every time when I get the pause/duration layout up or exit the app. It's like the whole OS goes too bright when playing a video. :(

    I get this problem when playing videos from the internet on iOS 7's own video-player, and on the YouTube-player. It does not happen when I play videos from the camera-roll.

    This happens on both my iPhone 5s and my iPad Air. White/silver models, if that matters.

    Someone else experiencing this? Should I return it to an apple-store? I do not have any local stores nearby here in Norway to check it out. The nearest one is a four hour drive from here...

    This is the auto contrast/gamma correction that was introduced on ipad 4. It can be rather annoying at times but actually is good in standard in brighter lighting conditions. Very annoying at times in a dark room.

    They have improved it a bit on the latest devices since it was a little sloppy on the ipad 4.

    Well I think it is really annoying. Watching a super-duper over-exposed soccer-match on the iPad is painful, and I force myself to click on the screen once every five seconds to keep the picture normal. I guess there is no way to turn it off either... :(
