How to adjust your brightness settings on an iPhone or iPad

It’s easy to adjust display the brightness and color temperature on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Here’s how:

  1. On an iPhone X or later, or an iPad with iOS 12 or iPadOS, swipe down from the top-right corner of your display. On an iPhone 8 or earlier, or on an iPod touch, swipe up from the bottom edge of your display.
  2. Drag the brightness bar up or down to adjust the brightness.

(This how-to is based on my experiences and info on Apple’s support pages — where the images sometimes come from.)

  • Really? Seriously? This is all you got? Look, if you have to write an article instructing people on how to do the most basic, easy thing on am iPhone, then it truly is a slow news day.
