Use this Secret Trick to Turn the iPhone Flashlight Off Quickly

Tip flashlight photoWe’ve all used the flashlight on the iPhone as it’s one of the iPhone’s most useful, if low-tech, features. If you recall, you turn it on by tapping the Flashlight icon in Control Center (get to it by swiping up from the bottom of the Lock screen or Home screen). But you don’t have to retrace your steps in Control Center to turn the flashlight off. Instead, you’ll use your camera, well kind of. When the flashlight is turned on and you want to turn it off, fust swipe left partway on the Lock screen, as though you wanted to take a picture—you don’t even have to go far enough to switch to the camera. That turns off the flashlight without any need to fumble around in Control Center.
