How to enable and disable Auto Brightness on iPhone XS Max and XR
by Victor Hristov / Feb 04, 2019, 5:22 AM
Auto brightness is fundamentally changed with the latest versions of iOS and this means that if you just drag the brightness slider in Control Center on your iPhone up and down, you will only temporarily adjust brightness, but it will not stay fixed and will keep on adjusting to the environment.
So... how can you get a full manual control over screen brightness on the latest iPhone XS, XS Max and XR?
You can do it in a few simple steps, but keep in mind that Apple has made it harder simply because auto-brightness works very well and your average user will not need to have this manual control in the daily grind. If you do, however, here is how to take a full manual control over screen brightness.
First, go into Settings and select the General option
Here is where it all starts
Next, open the Accessibility tab and select Display Accommodations
This is the new home for switching Auto-Brightness on and off
Finally, toggle Auto-Brightness on and off
Don't forget to turn it back on after you've done your experimenting
And here is a short video showing you all the steps
If you just can't follow the pictures
You've done it.

Auto brightness being a power user feature? - retarded!

Lol, kind of expected that from an iFan since reading comprehension and critical thought isn't exactly a skill they possess. The one study iFans like to believe is from Chikita in 2015. Most peers glossed over that study and even Chikita had this to say about their own study: "Even Chitika admits that its results "are not comprehensive." Because the company focused on states and not smaller regions, such as cities or neighborhoods, the results lack "a great deal of granularity"." Another study by a British betting company conducted through an online quiz was disregarded by all reviewers but idiots still believe in it. Finally, there was one by Consumer Intelligence report a while ago. It showed that about 10% more Apple users had Associates degrees or higher compared to Samsung users but they did not correlate intelligence in any way to their results. Income wise the iOS user base in the US is about 10%

Lmao, you’re so insecure and triggered, but that’s to be expected from a Samsung troll, next time try not to cry so loudly, you look desperate, and btw, thanks for proving my point, you’re lovely :))))

I haven't head about that but it's been proven that Android users are more tech savvy than ios users and thta's whta's relevant here. On Android to turn off Auto brightness you just: Open settings > Chose Display(or Battery) > Toggle Auto Brightness on/off. Simple and intuitive, complicating simple things is not a sight of intelligence.

Never got the fact that if ever you go to Auto brightness settings in the bottom it display message that "Turning off Auto brightness will affect battery life". How come turning off a basic feature like auto brightness will affect my iPad's affects battery life?
