How do I lower the brightness further than the limitations on the iPhone / iPad?


1 Answer 1


To lower brightness lower than the limit:

Settings app > General > Accessibility > Zoom:

Set Zoom Region > "Full Screen Zoom"

Set Zoom Filter > "Low Light"

Set Maximum Zoom Level all the way to the right (The highest value)

Go back to Accessibility:

Settings app > General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut:

Set "Triple-Click The Home Button For" > Zoom

To Test: Triple click the home button and the screen will go darker.

  • Seems a rather convoluted method for something that's on the Control Centre anyway.
