A proximity sensor is a sensor that is able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. A proximity sensor often emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and looks for changes in the field or return signal. The object being sensed is often referred to as the proximity sensor’s target.
Proximity sensors are used in iPhone 5 to detect (and skip) accidental touchscreen taps when held to the ear during a call. The proximity sensor is located just behind the speaker meshing on the top portion of your LCD screen. The most common reason for the proximity sensor to get faulty is because of moisture or liquid ingress. If your iPhone screen does not go off during a phone call then it is time to get your iPhone 5 Proximity sensor replaced by a professional.
The iPhone 5 Proximity sensor is assembled along with the front camera, ambient light sensor and a microphone on a single flex assembly during the manufacturing process. Hence if either is faulty we need to change the complete proximity flex assembly. If your iPhone screen does not go off during a phone call or having the symptoms mentioned then it is time to get your iPhone 5 Proximity sensor replaced by a professional.
You need to replace your iPhone 5 Proximity sensor if:
- Display doesn’t goes off during calls.
- Applications run automatically during calls.
- The call gets disconnected intermittently.
- Calls get on hold frequently.
- LCD screen brightness does not respond to ambient light.
