Unless you touch it and actively use it, the display of an iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max, iPhone X or iPhone 10 will start dimming at some point. The only thing you can control is how fast or how slow you want this to happen. And since you’ve been searching for information on how to stop the Apple iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max/iPhone X or iPhone 10 screen from dimming, we can tell it’s the second option.

But what do you know, you’re here, so we are going to show you how to handle the dimming in both ways. Because regardless of how you want it to be, the steps are the same.

How can you get to it and what options you will specifically have is something that we will discover together in this short article.

  3. You’ll see quite a generous list of options in there, so, feel free to select your favorite (from 30 seconds to 5 minutes or more).


Naturally, you shouldn’t worry if you don’t really know what’s your favorite option for now. Try something, set it, see how it works and repeat the steps if you need to change it. Many of the iPhone 11/11 Pro/11 Pro Max, iPhone X and iPhone 10 settings, the screen dimming included, are something to be learned through trial and error.
