If you are one of those guys who did not opt-in for the iOS 11 beta program, then you would be happy to know that iOS 11 final version is out for everyone. The iOS 11 brings a lot of changes under the hood and in the UI part as well. While it is true that a lot of new features has been added, not everything is perfect either. Well, a piece of software is never perfect and it will always be under constant development, one version after another. One particular change that we don’t like that much is the way you change auto brightness setting in iOS. We’ll see what is the problem and the solution for the same in this article.
Auto Brightness in iOS 11
While there is nothing wrong with the Auto Brightness feature, which works perfectly well for the record, the way you toggle it is much harder now. A good way would be to give a shortcut on the control center. A decent way would be to provide the toggle switch under the Display Settings. But, strangely, Apple has decided to do neither. Yes, you read that right, it’s in either of the two locations I had mentioned above. In contrast, you might have to tap a few more times inside the Settings which we will see how in detail below.
Turn Off/Disable Auto Brightness in iOS 11
As already stated before, it is just a few taps away inside the Settings menu. The Auto Brightness Toggle in iOS 11 can be found by following the below steps:
- Open the ‘Settings‘ menu and then tap on ‘General‘.
- Next, tap on ‘Accessibility’ and then scroll down till you see ‘Display Accommodations‘ and then tap on the same.
- The next step is to find the ‘Auto-Brightness‘ toggle and then tap on the same to turn it off. You gotta go through all the steps above to if you want to toggle auto brightness back to ‘on’ in the future.
That is all, you have successfully disabled auto brightness. The point is, for a device which is being claimed to be user-friendly for almost over a decade, the above thing we just did should be made way more easier. Hopefully, Apple changes its mind and provides an easy way, which I think is bound to happen sometime soon. We’ll see how that goes!
