How To Turn Off Auto Brightness In iOS 16

By default, your iPhone, or any iOS device that runs on the latest version, automatically adjusts the screen brightness depending on the amount of ambient light it receives. When you go into the Display & brightness menu in Settings, you won’t be able to find the auto brightness feature. It’s because it’s located on another menu.
