With all of the functions and features built into your iPhone, it's hard to keep track of everything it can do. So it's no wonder many are just now discovering a long awaited feature that had been hiding on their phones the whole time.
Even with all of the other bells and whistles that come packed into your iPhone, the convenience of always having a flashlight on hand still remains one of the most useful features you can find.
Sometimes though the handy feature can be a bit overwhelming. iPhone owners will know that in the middle of a dark room it's a bit like turning on the sun.
Naturally users have been searching for a way to tone down the flashlight's blinding brightness, but as it turns out the solution has been on their phone all along.
Did you know you can adjust the brightness on your iPhone flashlight??? https://t.co/61DR886scV— 📿🧘🏾♀️DL🧘🏾♀️📿 (@📿🧘🏾♀️DL🧘🏾♀️📿) 1550539155.0
To adjust your flashlight's brightness all you have to do is enter the Control Center and long press the flashlight icon. A menu will pop up allowing you to choose between 4 different levels of brightness
However only iPhones with iOS 11 will be able to access the menu.
Savvy iPhone owners of course already knew about the feature.
Are there ppl that really didn’t know this? https://t.co/faI5nwPawl— Kenneth (@Kenneth) 1551170940.0
