    If I remember correctly, the fix was something similar to this: turn off auto-brightness and then slide the lever to its dimmest position. Now move the slider to just slightly right of it dimmest position and then turn on auto-brightness. After that, allow bright light to shine on your screen. That was it. It worked for me. If I come across the thread that contained the instruction, I will post a link to it in this thread.

    This has been fixed with the iOS 6.0.1 update, at least for many of us. When you enable auto-brightness, move the lever to your desired level of brightness in a low-lit area. Now go to a well lit area (preferably outside). Your screen should increase its brightness. Now go back to the low lit area and watch the level of brightness decrease back to the level you initially set it to.
