Whether you want to know how to turn off the flashlight on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR or how to turn it on, it’s pretty much one and the same. If you’d new what the flashlight is and where you can find it, everything would make more sense to you, but we’ll get there in a minute. Before we proceed, if it’s your first experience of this kind, let us say just that: don’t expect a LED Maglight effect, it’s nothing like that.
Now, the flashlight on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR – as most Apple users refer to it – is a widget. And it is actually a very common and useful widget, at least from the perspective of the developer. That is why you will find it listed within the Control Center, the one that you can extend with one swipe on the Home Screen, from the bottom toward the top of the screen.
This widget is actually called Torch and you will most likely identify it in the lower corner of the quick settings menu. It has a dedicated icon, just like all the other quick commands, and can be accessed with one tap.
That one tap is everything you need to turn on or off the iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR flashlight. The first time when you do it, you turn on the widget; and the second time when you do it, you turn it off. There’s really not much to say and if you go and follow these steps right now, you’ll see it too. Super-fast, easy and accessible!
