Reddit user altapowderdog first noticed this effect of their new iPhone 11, as owners discovered its glow when activating its flashlight feature. To turn it off and prevent blinding yourself with momentary bright light and accidental activation, simply rotate your wrist away from you to turn it off. This ensures no momentary flash blindness occurs or accidental activation.
Turn it on
When in a pinch in the dark, your iPhone can come to the rescue! Simply tap on the flashlight icon in Control Center (iPhone X and later, iPad), or swipe up from the bottom of any screen to bring light where needed. If the feature doesn’t seem to be working as intended, remove any case or accessory which might obstruct its camera or flash before trying again.
iPhone owners with colorful models may notice their device glows when using its flashlight function, as first noticed on reddit by altapowderdog and since by several other users. While this effect can be pretty cool, prolonged staring could result in blinding yourself!
Adjust the brightness
Stock iPhone flashlights don’t offer much configuration options compared to other flashlights on the market; however, Tenmetsu by iOS developer Plat-Ykor may change that. This jailbreak tweak works on iOS 13 or later devices and adds several useful new functions – including being able to adjust brightness – that give users greater control of their LED flashlight.
Another interesting feature of this app is its ability to automatically adjust brightness and dimness based on your face orientation. So, for instance, if you turn away your wrist to activate the flashlight it will switch back off once your hand returns toward you – an effective way of avoiding blinding yourself with flashlight usage as well as saving you from pressing buttons manually!
Change the mode
Nitecore and Fenix flashlights feature various flash modes designed to aid you in emergency situations, including strobe mode and SOS alerting capabilities that can come in handy during these scenarios. Since using a flashlight in such circumstances can be hazardous, it is vitally important to learn how to utilize its capabilities correctly.
An iPhone flashlight can be an invaluable emergency aid, particularly if you find yourself out after dark. Thankfully, its LED light can serve as an emergency flashlight when needed; just ensure your battery is fully charged prior to using it in this capacity and remove any cases or accessories which might interfere with its proper function.
Your iPhone flashlight is convenient to use, yet its capabilities may be limited. If you use jailbreaking iOS 13, however, there is an app created by Plat-Ykor called Tenmetsu which adds additional features such as strobe light mode configuration options and more!
People frequently rely on their iPhone’s built-in LED flashlight as an invaluable emergency tool, such as during a power outage. Furthermore, its small and portable design make it convenient to carry around. Unfortunately, this feature has some drawbacks – specifically that its switch can only be controlled with one button; additionally, users cannot use a stylus with it, making using it difficult in darker environments or distracting while reading or writing on screen.
