How to Switch Off Auto-Brightness on iOS 11 iPhone/iPad

iOS devices use an ambient light sensor to adjust brightness levels based on the light conditions around you. The sensor lowers brightness in dark locations and raises brightness in light locations. The auto-brightness feature is on by default. However, those who did not want to use the feature can go to "Display & Brightness" under settings and toggle it off, but that's no longer the case in iOS 11.

The iOS 11 software update brings many positive changes to our iPhones and iPads. However one feature that has been annoying many users involves the Auto-Brightness feature. With iOS 11 Apple has relocated the Auto-Brightness toggle, making it harder for users to get to it. This was done to discourage users from turning this feature off, as it can negatively affect your device’s battery life.
