    Does anyone know the location of the ambient light sensor on the iPad Air 2 vs on the iPad Air? I received my iPad Air 2 today and put
    my iPad Air case on it. Inseams that the ambient light sensor is not operating correctly.

    The two sensors are located in the upper left and right hand corners of the iPad for the Air 2

    Thanks for the help. I found an Apple document on the Apple site covering all of their portable devices that has the layout showing the locations.

    Again thanks.

    The iPad Air 2 has two ambient light sensors rather than the single sensor which was located near the front facing camera lens on the Air 1. One sensor is located on each in the top front corners. You can see the exact locations by shining a flashlight on the corners. The sensors are redundant rather than additive so that covering one does not cause a problem. I had to punch a hole in my new cover to get the automatic brightness adjustment to work on my Air 2. I have yet to find a case manufacturer who has discover and accommodated this change from the Air 1 to the Air 2. I punched a 5/16 inch hole with a hollow leather punch to fix mine after discovering that a drill made a mess of the fibrous material.

    Once I located the sensors using the document I mention above, I used a pair of diagonal wire cutters and cut the rough holes I needed then I used an Exacto knife to trim and tidy up the cutouts so they looked good. Works great now.

    If you go on the otter box website they have the holes already drilled out
