Tech Tip Tuesday: Adjusting your iPhone Flashlight brightness in iOS 10

Posted by

It's Tech Tip Tuesday!

Here's a very simple iPhone tip for those of you with an iPhone 6S or newer running iOS 10.  Did you know you can adjust your flashlight brightness?  There are settings for Bright Light, Medium Light, or Low Light.  Just follow these simple steps:

1. Swipe up from the bottom of your phone to show the control center.

2. Press firmly on the Flashlight icon and hold.

3. A 3D touch menu will pop up offering you options for bright, medium or low light. Choose which one you prefer.

And that's it!  The low light is useful if your battery is low, since it uses less power.  It can also be helpful to have an option that's a little less distracting to others, like in a darkened restaurant to read the menu. Bright light is awesome for when you lose your tiny Apple TV remote under the couch.  (Ahem...not that we have ever ran into that particular situation.)
