Apple's new patent details smarter brightness control


The patent is made to address the luminescence shock, which occurs when you turn on your phone's display during a dark condition. Usually, what happens, when you turn the screen on the iPhone take a few seconds to settle down to an appropriate brightness level.

Now, with this patent, Apple has managed to control the selectivity limit of the brightness level of a display of the device, when the screen of the device is activated in dark circumstances especially in the night.

How technology works

Basically, the smartphone will use ambient light sensor when an event is triggered ­suppose you receive a phone call or a message. During this kind of events the instead of turning the display on and adjusting the brightness after, the device will use the ambient light sensor to judge how dark it is.

After determining the environment display will turn on with an appropriate brightness. In simple words, instead of turning on the display at full brightness, the device will simply turn on at reduced brightness when a call or message has been received, which will avoid luminescence shock.

This patent is a continuation of the one which was filed back in 2016. Apple had filed the original patent back in 2007. So its pretty clear that the company is working on it for a while now.

This new feature will also help in saving power. If a device is constantly turning on and off the display whenever a notification is received, it can have a big effect on the battery. Turning it on at a lower brightness could help in power saving.
