How to Turn Down Brightness on iPhone 11

Your iphone 11 screen consumes considerable battery power. To help extend battery life and preserve energy savings, auto-brightness automatically adjusts display brightness based on ambient lighting levels – this feature is enabled by default but if desired manual control may be desired. Alternatively, use Control Center’s brightness slider or set a shorter screen timeout in order to further save power.


Screen brightness is one of the greatest drains on your battery. Lighting up your screen uses up a great deal of power, so reducing its settings is one way you can help conserve power and conserve more by decreasing auto-lock time or restricting how brightly an App displays itself.

Your iPhone allows you to easily control its brightness by accessing Settings -> Display & Brightness and choosing either automatic brightness adjustment based on ambient light, or manually controlling brightness yourself. Alternatively, this feature can be disabled for manual control if desired.

To switch off automatic brightness setting on your phone screen, tap on the icon in the bottom right corner. From then on, manually adjusting brightness may need to be done whenever opening it up again. Furthermore, customizing controls includes adding or removing toggles from control center when you swipe down, as well as customizing their order so they’re exactly where they belong.

Another effective way of conserving power is using Airplane mode when not connected to Wi-Fi, as this will prevent your iPhone from searching for nearby wireless networks and using up precious battery life. You can also reduce backlight by making adjustments in system settings; for instance if your screen is too bright you could decrease the backlight to save power. You could also adjust maximum screen brightness levels or modify how your display appears on-screen.

Reddit users have discovered that Google Pixel phones boasting 90Hz refresh rate displays are subject to throttling when set below 75% brightness; this occurs due to ambient light sensor detection of high levels of illumination in their surroundings.

Your smartphone can help conserve battery by disabling the automatic brightness feature in Settings and setting a specific brightness level for the screen. Furthermore, setting email accounts to Fetch rather than Push can significantly lower power usage by your phone.

Night Shift

Night Shift, available exclusively on iPhone, automatically adjusts the brightness and color temperature of your display at night in order to help improve sleep by reducing blue light exposure from screens, as well as warming it up by altering color temperature settings in order to make displays warmer and increase color temperature during sunset/sunrise cycles. You can enable it in settings menu and it will begin working from sunset through sunrise cycles.

iOS 9.3 beta 5 introduces some changes to Night Shift which could make their way into the final release. One key alteration is that tapping Night Shift icon now offers two options for Night Shift: “Turn On for Now” or “Turn On until Tomorrow.” Choosing this latter option allows the feature to stay turned on until manually turned off by you.

Apple has also implemented subtle but significant language modifications for Night Shift’s Temperature slider: they now use terms “Less Warm” and “More Warm,” rather than cooler/warmer respectively. Most will likely not notice these subtle modifications, but for those concerned about blue light’s effects on their sleep cycle it could prove crucial.

Night Shift on my iPhone was extremely helpful when trying to sleep better, though it did cause some side-effects that I found annoying: photos and videos took longer to load, while its brightness would sometimes fluctuate unpredictably – something especially noticeable when using my phone for presentations or in dark rooms.

However, one of the key problems with Night Shift was its inconsistent functionality. For example, when taking photos in low light sushi restaurants with my friend Kayla in low-light environments using both Pixel 3 and iPhone 11, night mode gave a richer and more contrasty image from Pixel 3. I haven’t determined why this happened but it should definitely be fixed before this feature becomes part of iOS 14. If you’re experiencing difficulties, here are a few solutions you may want to try:

True Tone

If your device’s battery life is becoming an issue, one way you can reduce its usage is to adjust its brightness. Also consider shortening its auto-lock time; this will shut off your screen after less time has been spent inactive and save power – tap Settings/General/Auto-Lock for this.

The iPhone 11 features an innovative True Tone display, which automatically adapts the hues of its display to match ambient light, creating more natural images and making using your phone easier on your eyes. However, you have the option to disable this feature at any time or adjust its temperature up or down depending on your individual tastes and needs.

As well as offering an automatic brightness adjustment, the new iPhone also comes equipped with a dark mode to help ease strain on the eyes. This mode works across all applications and can be enabled by going into Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations and toggling on “Dark Mode.” You can even set a schedule to automatically turn it on each night!

If your device becomes overheated, it will dim or turn off its display to protect its screen – this is especially crucial if using it while charging or when exposed to direct sunlight. To prevent this, adjust your auto-brightness setting in the accessibility menu for maximum brightness and avoid this scenario.

Customizing the Control Center allows you to add or remove the controls you prefer. In addition, you can change display brightness levels, enable haptic touch brightness toggle, adjust auto-lock settings and set font size/text zoom accordingly for those with vision limitations.

Display Accommodations

Your iPhone X, iPad Pro and iPod touch’s display utilizes advanced technology that automatically adjusts brightness. In addition, color intensity adjusts according to ambient lighting so images look more natural – you can disable this feature via Settings.

Control Center or Display & Brightness can be used to set your preferred screen brightness. In case your iPhone or iPad becomes overheated, maximum screen brightness is temporarily decreased until it can cool off – helping prevent potential display damage.

If you want to turn off Auto-Brightness on your iPhone, head to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations and toggle the setting off. However, this will also disable Night Shift and True Tone; these features could come in handy in dark environments like movie theaters or late evening when using your device – helping reduce eye strain while improving the experience as well as conserving battery life by adapting display brightness based on ambient light conditions.
