  • The Flashlight button will be added to the Control Center, in the end, use the three grey colored lines to rearrange the position of Flashlight in the Control Center.
  • After adding Flashlight in the Control Center, pull down the Control Center from the top-right corner, if you own iPhone with Face ID. While on iPhone with Touch ID swipe up the Control Center from the bottom of the screen to access the Torch button. Later, if you haven’t rearranged the Flashlight, then it will show up at the end of the Control Center.

    Method 2: Turn Off Flashlight on iPhone Using Siri

    One of the simplest ways to control the basic functions of the iPhone including Flashlight is using Siri. Though Siri needs to be enabled on the device, otherwise, it won’t listen to your commands. These are the following steps to enable Hey Siri. Ditch the steps if you already have Siri enabled. At the same time, we can’t use Siri during Meetings or in Public Place or while our family members are sleeping, some folks might find this inconvenient. Under such circumstances, go with other tips.

    Note: Your iPhone must be connected to Cellular Data or Wi-Fi to turn off Flashlight using Siri since offline support for Siri hasn’t been added to date.

    1. Go to the Settings app.
    2. Tap Siri & Search.
    3. Toggle ON Listen for “Hey Siri”.Ask Siri to Turn Off Flashlight

    The commands recommended by Apple to Turn On and Off Flashlight using Siri are:

    • Turn off my flashlight.
    • Turn on my flashlight.
    • Will you turn on my flashlight?

    Alternatively, try making your own commands.

    Method 3: Turn Off Flashlight on iPhone Lock screen

    This option sounds weird; however, it’s a pretty simple way to turn off the torch when iPhone is screen locked. You don’t need to unlock the iPhone to turn off Flashlight, merely swipe the lock screen from right to left like we do to open the Camera app, unlike, in this case, it’s not necessary to launch the Camera app, simply swipe from right to left only to the half screen. The flashlight will automatically be turned off on the iPhone, without asking Siri or using the Control Center. This one’s my favorite trick though!

A simple touch won’t turn on or off the Torch, Apple has added 3D Touch functionality into it, which means, you have to touch and hold the Torch button for a second, plus, the device will gently vibrate, indicating Flashlight is turned off or on.
