Share This:

The iPhone XR is the latest addition to Apple’s flagship lineup of smartphones, and it is packed with amazing features. One of these features is the ability to turn on a flashlight with just a few taps. Whether you need a bit of extra light in dark places or just want to impress your friends, this feature can come in handy.

Thankfully, turning off the flashlight on an iPhone XR isn’t difficult either. There are two ways to do it: by using Siri or by directly accessing the flashlight icon on the lock screen.

Firstly, if you have enabled Hey Siri, you can simply say “Hey Siri, turn off my flashlight” and the light will be switched off instantly. If Hey Siri isn’t working or isn’t enabled on your phone, then you can turn off the flashlight using the lock screen icon. To access it, pull down from the top of your screen to open up notifications and then find the toggle for Flashlight. Tap on it once and it will be switched off immediately.

You can also set up LED Flash for Alerts in Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual; this will allow your iPhone XR’s LED flash to blink when you receive notifications or calls even when your phone is in silent mode. To prevent LED flashes when iPhone is in silent mode, simply turn off Flash on Silent in Accessibility settings.

Using these two simple methods, you’ll be able to quickly and easily turn on and off your iPhone XR’s flashlight whenever you need it!
