Turning off True Tone, the iPhone’s auto-brightness function is a good place to start if you want more control over how bright your iPhone is.
The brightness of your iPhone’s display is automatically adjusted by sensors. Because of this, you can use your phone in bright sunshine or in a darkened room without having to change your settings manually in many different conditions.
Your phone’s display requires a lot of power to illuminate. Light sensors can be used to change the screen on your iPhone.
True Tone, the iPhone’s auto-brightness setting, can be turned off at times when you prefer to regulate the brightness of your iPhone’s display.
How to disable iPhone’s Auto-Brightness
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Select “Display & Brightness” from the drop-down menu.
- Use the toggle to switch off True Tone under the Brightness subheading.
- In order to adjust your iPhone’s brightness, move it up or down to the True Tone toggle switch.
Navigate back into your iPhone’s settings and toggle on auto-brightness again if you wish to reactivate True Tone.
In the Control Center, how do you change the brightness?
If you want to keep True Tone enabled but temporarily override it, you can use the Control Center to instantly modify the brightness.
- Swipe down from the top-right of your screen on an iPhone X or later running iOS 12 or later to launch the Control Center.
- On an iPhone 8 or before, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Control Center.
- After launching Control Center, tap and slide up or down the brightness bar to change the brightness level of the display.
By holding down the brightness slider in the Control Center while swiping up or down, you can fast access common display settings like True Tone, Dark Mode, and Night Shift.

Digital displays, on the other hand, can be frustrating to work with, especially for prolonged periods of time. There are a few things you can do to prevent eye strain and headaches from using your iPhone if you’ve noticed that it’s been causing you problems.
