The iPhone’s LED flashlight can be very useful in the situation of power outages, midnight trips to the toilet, or even for checking for monsters under the bed. Depending on whether your iPhone has a home button or Face ID – which itself depends on the model of your phone – there are different shortcuts for toggling your flashlight. Here is a guide on how you can easily do this.
Using your iPhone flashlight via Control Center
If you have a newer phone with Face ID, beginning with the 2017 iPhone X, swipe your finger downward from the top-right corner of the display, which can be found next to the camera notch. The Command Center will be made visible, with the Flashlight button on the bottom left of the screen as of the iOS 14 software.
On older phones that have a Home button, swipe upwards from the bottom of the phone screen to make the Command Center pop up and appear. Use the toggle to switch the Flashlight button on.
