iPhone Flashlight Tips
If you have an iPhone X, you can also switch on the light from the Lock screen. Simply hard press on the flashlight icon in the bottom-left corner.
On any iPhone, like the iPhone 6 or later, you can adjust the brightness of the light via the Control Center. Simply hard/long press the flashlight icon to bring up the brightness adjustment tool. Once it appears, drag the slider to adjust the light to your liking.
For those of you who cannot find or use the flashlight using the built-in feature, you can use an app like Flashlight to utilize your LED as a torch.
