Lower iPhone flashlight beam to keep out of MY eyes!
The iPhone (and other smart phones) have either a built-in flashlight or a flashlight app that turns your phone’s camera flash into a flashlight.
The device that is your telephone, computer, message center, entertainment and game center, GPS, and information portal – is also an easily accessible flashlight.
The beam is very bright. The best usage is to keep your iPhone pointed down while activating the flashlight. Otherwise, in a crowded room, you may not be popular.
Accessing the iPhone Flashlight
To access the iPhone flashlight on models previous to the iPhone X, swipe up from above the Home Button, revealing the Control Center. The flashlight feature is located in the lower-left corner. To activate the flashlight, tap the icon. To turn off the flashlight feature, tap the icon.
To access the iPhone flashlight on the iPhone X, swipe downward from the upper-right corner of the iPhone X, revealing the Control Center.
As in previous iPhone models, activate the flashlight, found on the lower-left corner of the Control Center with a single tap and to turn off the flashlight, tap the same flashlight icon…and is always a good idea to confirm the flashlight is off, not by holding the iPhone up where it could shine in someone’s eyes, but watch for illumination below the device.
Handy, Use Everywhere, Do Avoid Eye Contact
I love the iPhone flashlight and use it frequently: outside with the dogs, in the car, or simply to find a misplaced item.
From a fellow restaurant-diner…
When you are using the iPhone flashlight in a restaurant, understand there are other diners close by; your light is bright and can be uncomfortable and distracting from the dining experience.
Ensure the beam is pointed downward toward the table and away from customers’ eyes.
Remember to turn off the flashlight to prevent disturbing other patrons and to minimize battery loss.
Swipe to flashlight is a very useful iPhone tool!
