It must be because you have auto-brightness enabled and sometimes when you move your phone in the car, the light quantity that activates the sensor will change and hence the dimming of the screen.

Sounds like the common issue of reports causing the screen to dim and it doesn't return. It's a known issue.

The forum definitely supports adding attachments. But there's been dozens of posts about it with screenshots, so it's not necessary.

I am updating in this thread as it was the first to report the screen dimming/going black issue on iOS.

According to Waze, this issue has been resolved with a server-side fix. No sure what they did, or if they just "turned something off" so the app won't try to do the pop-up spotlight or what. No details have been provided.

This is happening on my iPhone as well. It started when I updated to latest version and when I am driving without navigation.
