Ensure your iPhone’s screen stays dim during phone calls with DimInCall


Have you ever been in the middle of a phone call on your iPhone and noticed your cheek was pressing buttons? Sure, there’s a proximity sensor there that’s supposed to keep this from happening. But any kind of jostling can thwart its efforts.

Luckily there’s a jailbreak tweak that can help with this problem. DimInCall, by developer snakeninny, will automatically dim your screen when it detects your iPhone has established a call connection. And it’ll keep it dim until the call is over…

The tweak comes in the standard package. Once installed, you can configure all of its options from within the Settings app. These options include 4 toggles: dim with microphone, dim with speaker, dim with headphone and vibrate on connection.

I’ve been testing DimInCall over the past 24 hours, and so far it’s worked great. My iPhone 5’s display dims instantly once a phone call has been connected, and it stays that way until I press either the Power button, the Home button, or disconnect.

Ok I’ll admit it, my iPhone’s proximity sensor has betrayed me more than once. But is it annoying enough to buy a tweak? I don’t think so. If it is for you, though, this is one of the better options. You can find DimInCall in the BigBoss repo for $2.
