A flashlight is one of the devices that can be replaced using the iPhone. After all, a fairly bright flash is built into this smartphone and it can be turned on at any time. In this case, you do not even need to install additional applications.
In this article we will talk about how to turn on the flashlight on the iPhone. The article will be useful to users of iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, 5c, 6, 6s and 7.
How to turn on the flashlight using the Control Center
Starting with the seventh version, the iOS operating system has an interface element called the “Control Center”. With it, you can quickly turn on or off the most popular functions. For example, through the “Control Center” you can turn on silent mode, “Airplane” mode, wireless Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
Among other things, in the "Control Center" there is the ability to turn on or off the flashlight. This is done very simply. To get started, you need to open the “Control Center” using a swipe from the bottom edge of the iPhone up. After you open the “Control Point”, simply click on the flashlight icon and it will turn on immediately.
If you have an iPhone 6s or newer iPhone model, then when you turn on the flashlight, you can use the 3D Touch function. To do this, just with effort, click on the flashlight icon in the "Control Point".
After that, a menu with additional features will open. With this menu you can select the mode of operation of the flashlight. Three modes are available: low light, medium light and bright light.
Please note, in order to turn off the flashlight, you need to go to the “Control Center” once again and press the button with the flashlight icon again. If this is not done, then the flashlight will continue to glow even when the screen is locked. If you forget about the iPhone with the flashlight turned on, it will light until the battery is exhausted.
How to turn on the flashlight using third-party applications
You can also turn on the flashlight using third-party applications. In order to find applications for working with a flashlight, open the AppStore and enter “Flashlight” into the search.
Installing a special application allows you to not open the "Control Point", instead, to turn on the flashlight, just click on the application icon on the desktop. If you need to use a flashlight often, then this can save you a little time.
In addition to this application, you can use the flashlight in non-standard ways. For example, using applications, you can set the flashlight to blink at a certain frequency.
How to turn on the flashlight when making a call
You can also turn on the flashlight on the iPhone when making a call. This feature is designed to help people with disabilities, but it can be useful for the average user. If the flashlight will turn on with every call, then the probability of missing a call in a noisy room will be lower.
In order to enable this feature, open the iPhone settings and go to the "General – Universal Access" section. In this settings section you need to enable the "LED-flash for warnings."
After enabling this function, all incoming calls with a locked screen will be accompanied by the inclusion of a flashlight. If the screen works during an incoming call, the flashlight will not turn on.
