The 2018 MacBook Pro has an ambient light sensor for its True Tone display. Where exactly is this sensor? I'm hoping for a diagram so that I know where exactly to position a webcam slider cover without blocking the sensor.

According to MacRumors:

Apple says the new MacBook Pro has a multi-channel ambient light sensor, next to the FaceTime HD camera

but that isn't specific enough to tell which side or how far from the camera.

The sensor is 1/2 inch to the right of the camera.

I pointed the display at a bright light and opened the Display system preference. I moved a small object along the top of the screen until they brightness changed.

Thanks to Solar Mike for the idea.
