If you accidentally turn on Flashlight on the back of your iPhone 11, that bright white LED light, it can be confusing to figure out how to turn it off. Here’s how to quickly turn it off at any time on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
How to turn off the flashlight using the lock screen
When your iPhone wakes up from standby mode, you’ll see a special screen called the “lock screen.” On this screen, you can turn off the flashlight by pressing and holding the flashlight icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.
When it turns off, you will feel a slight shock on the iPhone itself, which is a form of haptic feedback . To turn the flashlight back on, simply long press the flashlight icon in the corner of the lock screen.
How to turn off the flashlight using Control Center
Every iPhone comes with a quick menu of shortcuts called Control center and, by default, it includes a shortcut icon that controls the flashlight on your iPhone 11.
To turn off the flashlight this way, first open Control Center by swiping down from the top right corner of your iPhone screen.
When the Control Center menu appears, tap the highlighted flashlight icon, which is usually near the bottom of the screen. (If you don’t see the flashlight icon, you can add it personalizing Control Center in Settings).
The flashlight will turn off. In the future, you can also turn on your flashlight this way, and if you tap and hold the flashlight icon in Control Center, you can open a special popup menu for adjust brightness of the flashlight. I hope this sheds some light on the subject!
