This is a question that many users of iPhone and iPad in iOS 10.3 have. After all, the guys from Apple were right to introduce this super-useful feature with their devices. You can never know when you’re going to need a flashlight. Why carry a LED Maglite with you when you have a built-in flashlight on your smartphone?
These two aren’t necessarily comparable, in the sense that the Maglite will always give more light. Nevertheless, the Torch feature will give you just enough light so nothing else matters other than knowing how to turn it On or Off, depending on your needs.
This article is a guide on how to use your iPhone and iPad in iOS 10.3 as a source of light. We’re going to introduce you to the Torch app and the Flashlight widget, the two things that work hand in hand to do just that. In case you didn’t know, the Flashlight comes as a default widget, so there’s no need to waste any more time looking for third-party apps to download.
If you want to use your smartphone as a flashlight, take a look at these instructions:
- Start the device;
- Swipe up from the bottom of the display to launch the Menu;
- You’ll see a list of widgets and, towards the lower left corner of the screen, you have the Flashlight icon;
- Tap on it and the iPhone or the iPad will light up;
- To turn it off, tap on the very same icon once again.
