What is an iPhone proximity sensor?

Your iPhone 5’s proximity sensor switches off the display and touchscreen when your device is brought near your face during a call.

Why is the proximity sensor so important?

The proximity sensor is useful because it functions to (A) conserve battery power and (B) inhibit unintentional inputs from your face and ears, such as ending calls prematurely, dialing random numbers, or accidentally hitting some other call-interrupting button(s). This is a pretty super, well-devised sensor tool, huh? Sure is. Test it out. Make a call now. Witness the sensory magic at work.
