Does anyone that downloaded 4.2 know if the Auto brightness / light senser
bug has been fixed ?

Can someone please try it out and let me know... I would really like to use the auto brightness feature.

Adjusting the brightness manualy over and over again is getting really old.

Thanks

    I don't have this bug and I have not seen a number of posts and threads here reporting the same.

    Apple doesn't list every single bug that is addressed with a particular update and this is certainly not a problem experienced by everyone. If not listed, this obviously is not a major issue and just because it is not listed does not mean it wasn't addressed for those with the problem.

    Since this wasn't listed, don't install it, or install it to see if it resolves the problem for you.

    Don't know if that is a bug because none of my iPhones have gone from bright to darker on their own. I've always had to put them to sleep then reawoken them to get the screen to darken.

    I have my phone set on 50% brightness & auto. If I'm in a pitch black room, the lock screen will be full brightness, but then once the phone is unlocked the brightness drops way down. Seems to work pretty good in most circumstances.

    I think He's talking about when you come from outside on a bright sunny day into a dark room the phone should darken without putting it to sleep and then waking it up again. My iPhones have always worked the the way you have described.

    No I have not. Give me links to all the many threads here reporting this problem.

    If many, many people have this problem, prove it.

    If your iPhone has a hardware problem and remains under warranty and you haven't done anything to void the warranty, your iPhone will be exchanged under warranty.
