Galaxy S7 Auto Rotate and Auto Brightness stopped working after Nougat Update

JUMP TO SOLUTION

- After updating to Nougat, the auto rotate option does not work.  I've ensured that the Portrait lock is not on and that the icon is set to rotate.

 

- After updating to Nougat, auto-brightness keeps the screen perpetually dark and does not account for different ambient light levels.

 

Anyone else having these issues and have you found out how to resolve them?

I personally haven't seen any other posts directly related to these together. When you've toggled them on, have you made sure that you also tried toggling any power saving mode off just to see if by chance it's auto defaulting that stuff. You could also give your phone a nice wipe of the cache partition which will clear any residual data your phone saved after the System Update. You can follow the guide on how to do that here - How To: Clear the Cache Partition

I was surprised this worked, but now both features are functioning normally.  Thanks!

Auto-rotate and Auto-brightness quit working for me as well yesterday.  Thought I somehow had messed up the settings unknowingly.  Auto-rotate and Auto-brightness both were turned on but neither worked.  After clearing the cache per your link, everything is back to normal.  Shame on the update for doing that but thank you so much for getting things back to normal!  It is much appreciated.
