How to Turn On/Off Auto-Brightness in iOS 11 on iPhone/iPad

Did you update to iOS 11 on your iPhone or iPad and now you are unable to find the auto-brightness setting under Display & Brightness? Well, that is because Apple for some reason has relocated it. Auto-Brightness, when enabled, adjusts the screen brightness depending on the surrounding light. It is turned on by default but if you wish to disable it then you will find it at a different location in the latest iOS version. You can follow this tutorial to know the changed steps to turn on/off auto-brightness in iOS 11.

1. Open Settings.

2. Tap on General.

5.  Here, you should find Auto-Brightness option. Toggle it’s switch to ON/OFF to enable or disable it.

As mentioned below the auto-brightness setting, disabling it may affect battery life. This is because of the fact that you may increase screen brightness in a particular area but then forget to decrease it when high intensity is not required. Auto-Brightness takes care of exactly this and adjusts the brightness to optimal level at all times.

So, keeping this in mind you can decide whether to activate or deactivate it.

As always apart from the new features in iOS 11 there are some slight changes in the settings. Auto-Brightness is one of them where Apple has just moved it to a different location. To users like me, it makes sense to have it under Display & Brightness like it was in iOS 10 or earlier. The reason for the change seems unclear but what matters for now is you know where you can find it.
