Hello everybody,

Just got brand new Xs yesterday. I have turned off true tone and brightness is set to max. But phone lowers brightness itself randomly without my knowledge :mad: Not when I`m using it, but I will unlock it and find that screen is darker than it was before I locked it - when I go into setting, it has lowered brightness itself. I am on latest iOS (not beta). Why and how to stop it?

Thanks

I`m not looking for a solution, but cause of the problem :)
hmm... Autobrightness is still turned on (?) (under Settings/Display & brightness?)
Also, check for relevant settings /General/Accessibility - maybe in Display Accommodations settings?
Looks like you found it!

I personally like Auto Brightness, but I can see why some people wouldn't.

For me, the key is to go outside in full sun and set it all the way up, and next set it as low as possible in a dark room. Then it's fine outdoors but not too bright when I'm in bed. That way I never really have to fiddle with brightness.

Why on earth would you want brightness all the way up and autobrightness off?? You will kill the battery, risk screen burn in and light up a room with the display! I don't get it...

Because I came from a phone with amazing screen which was very bright. Xs screen looks darker to me if not on max brightness.

In settings just do the pull down search for Auto Brightness. Anything you’re looking for in settings it’s much easier to use the search. Sometimes things are really buried in there.
