Apple cares about all users of its iPhones, offering them, among other things, some rather specific features that are not needed by everyone. Flash light notifications can be considered one of those functions. That is, the device, at the time of receiving the call, will not only emit a beep and vibrate, but also report the call to its owner by giving a signal using camera’s flash light. In the framework of this article we will tell you how to enable this function.

Why do you need flash alert when receiving notifications on your iphone
LED flash alert function is located in the “Universal Access” section. Here are gathered some options for people who for one or another physiological reason cannot fully use the device with its default settings. It is assumed that those who have hearing problems will be more comfortable with the flash alert function when an incoming call is received as they are not able to hear the call or the notification sound.
In fact, the iPhone LED flash alert function can be useful in many situations. For example, if you frequently use your smartphone in silent mode, the flash will alert you of new messages and calls. Or, this method of indication may be useful when working in a noisy room, for example, in production, where it is not possible to keep the device with you to notice the vibration, and at the same time you do not hear when your phone is ringing. Also LED flash notifications are useful at night, because even the vibration makes some sound that can disturb others.
How to turn on led flash alert when receiving calls and notifications on your iphone
To enable LED flash alert for calls and notifications on your iPhone, you need to go to the “Settings”. Next, go to the “General” section.
Here, scroll down the available options page a bit down to “Accessibility”. Choose it.
In this section, you can see a lot of different “unusual” options that can change your experience of “communicating” with the iPhone. But in this article we will describe only the LED flash alert function. To find it, scroll down the list of available options to the “Hearing” section, and here go to the “LED Flash for Alerts” section.
Activate the switch in this section for the function to start working on your device.
Please note that after activating the “Flash for Alert” option, a new item – “Flash on Silent” – appears in this section, which will be activated by default. If necessary, it can be disabled. When activated this function assumes that when you have a switch on the device set to silent mode, you will receive notifications not only in the form of vibration, but also in the form of a flash light signal. If you deactivate this switch, the LED flash alert for calls and notifications on the iPhone will be active only when the sound is on.
