How To: Change Flashlight Brightness on Your iPhone in iOS 10

Change Flashlight Brightness on Your iPhone in iOS 10

There has been a built-in flashlight on iPhones and iPod touches ever since the release of the Control Center in iOS 7, but it has stayed exactly the same since then. In iOS 10 and higher, you can actually adjust the brightness from the toggle if you have 3D Touch.

First, swipe up the Control Center from any screen, then just force-press the flashlight icon until a menu pops up allowing you to choose between Bright Intensity, Medium Intensity, and Low Intensity. The difference between them is drastic, covering all the bases. In the new iOS 11, the names of the intensity values are gone, but there are four options instead of just three.

If you're using iOS 10, you do need a device with 3D Touch to adjust flashlight brightness right now, so the 6s and iPhone 7 models are the only devices it'll work with right now. If you're using iOS 11, it will work on all iPhone models using either 3D Touch or a long-press.

Just updated your iPhone? You'll find new emoji, enhanced security, podcast transcripts, Apple Cash virtual numbers, and other useful features. There are even new additions hidden within Safari. Find out what's new and changed on your iPhone with the iOS 17.4 update.
