Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you desperately need a flashlight but can’t seem to find one? Well, worry no more!

If you own an iPhone 11, you have a built-in flashlight ready to illuminate your path with just a few taps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to turn on the flashlight on your iPhone 11.

Step 1: Access the Control Center

The Control Center is where all the essential shortcuts and toggles are conveniently located. To open it, simply swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone 11 screen. This action will reveal a panel that contains various quick settings.

Step 2: Locate the Flashlight Icon

Once you’ve accessed the Control Center, take a moment to familiarize yourself with its layout. Look for an icon that resembles a flashlight beam. This is the toggle button for turning on and off your iPhone’s flashlight.


If you don’t see the flashlight icon in your Control Center, don’t panic! It might be hidden from view due to customization settings. You can easily add it back by following these extra steps:

  • Go to “Settings” on your iPhone’s home screen.
  • Scroll down and tap on “Control Center”.
  • Select “Customize Controls”.
  • In the “More Controls” section, locate “Flashlight” and tap the green plus (+) button next to it.

Step 3: Activate the Flashlight

Now that you’ve located the flashlight icon in your Control Center, it’s time to turn on the light! Simply tap on the flashlight icon once, and voila! Your iPhone 11’s rear camera flash will illuminate your surroundings.

Step 4: Turn Off the Flashlight

When you no longer need the flashlight, follow these steps to turn it off:

  1. Access the Control Center by swiping down from the top-right corner of your iPhone 11 screen.
  2. Locate the flashlight icon, which should now be highlighted or activated.
  3. Tap on the flashlight icon again to turn off the light.


If you prefer to turn off the flashlight without accessing the Control Center, you can also do so by pressing the lock button (located on the right side of your iPhone) twice quickly. This action will instantly turn off both your flashlight and screen.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to turn on and off the flashlight on your iPhone 11.

This handy feature can be a lifesaver in various situations, whether you’re navigating through a dark room or searching for lost items in dim lighting. Now go forth and light up your world with just a tap!
