Hello,
My iPhone 6s with the latest iOS keeps dimming the screen. I turned off auto dim, no luck.
Thanks for help.

You may need to re-calibrate the sensor. I believe the way to do this is to go into a very dark room with auto-brightness turned off. Set the brightness to a minimal degree and then activate the auto-brightness and immediately turn it off again.

Once you've done this, bring your phone into a very bright place (preferably in the sun or a really bright room) and now slide the display brightness all the way to maximum and then re-enable auto-brightness. This should hopefully fix the issue.

That's how it works before locking--the screen dims and then the phone locks.

It used to be that the iphone wouldn't lock if I was watching a movie or YouTube videos. So, every 30seconds I have to touch my phone to get it to stop turning off or.... Turn off auto lock.

Well, you didn't mention that part of it. When you are watching something auto-lock shouldn't apply (nor the dimming part of it).
