The iPhone 14 screen can get incredibly bright, especially outside when the sun mode kicks in. However, some users may notice that the display gets dim, even with auto-brightness turned off. Here’s how to fix the iPhone 14 screen dimming issue.
How to fix iPhone 14 screen dimming with auto-brightness off
To fix the iPhone 14 screen dimming with auto-brightness off, users should:
- Stop using demanding apps.
- Closing demanding apps like the camera recording 4K or graphically-demanding games like Genshin Impact or Call of Duty Mobile will give the phone opportunity to cool down and the screen to brighten.
- Turn down the maximum brightness.
- Keeping the phone on maximum brightness can cause it to heat up to the point where it needs to drastically lower the brightness. Considering 70-80% brightness instead of 100%.
- Limit use in direct sunlight.
- The sun can cause electronics to heat up incredibly quickly. Though the iPhone 14 does crank up the brightness to improve screen visibility, it may quickly dim when it gets too hot.
- Limit the use of intensive apps while charging the phone.
- Charging the iPhone 14 generates a lot of heat. Combining that with a demanding app will cause more heat and force the phone screen to dim.
