Automatic brightness, an iPhone feature included with iOS 13, changes your screen’s brightness based on the environment you’re in.

For example, if you’re under bright lights, your iPhone’s brightness will go up to match. In a dark room, the brightness will drop so it doesn’t strain your eyes.

If you’re changing environments quickly – going from a dim hall to a brightly lit conference room, for example – you may have noticed your iPhone’s screen adapting.

If this feature is more of an annoyance than a convenience for you, turning off automatic brightness is simple.

Here’s how to turn off the automatic brightness settings on your iPhone running iOS 13.
