Don’t you like your iPhone’s ability to adjust screen brightness by itself? If so, you’ve probably disabled auto brightness on multiple incidents in the past.

Auto brightness is a feature intended for saving battery life and making your iPhone’s screen easier to read. It senses what kind of environment you are in – dark or bright and automatically adjusts your screen’s brightness accordingly. For instance, if you’re somewhere dark like your bedroom at night, your phone’s screen will automatically dim. On the other hand, when you’re somewhere bright like outside on a sunny day, it will turn itself to maximum brightness.

No doubt auto brightness on iOS 11 is generally pretty good at adapting to changing circumstances but at the same time, it’s one of the biggest battery drainers on your phone. Although Apple has introduced its latest operating system for iPhone, iPad and with various cool features, one thing users are not enjoying is having their retinas close to burnt owing to the phone’s auto brightness.
