Do you know how to turn on flash notification on iPhone? Well, see this scenario – you have to put your handset in silent mode and also turn off vibration alert. But, how on earth will you know that you received an SMS or if someone’s calling you? It actually looks impossible without vibration mode, but it isn’t. With Accessibility features, it’s pretty easy to activate LED flash alert. The iPhone’s LED flash light is quite strong (and pretty powerful if you stare at it, directly).

Learn How to Turn on Flash Notification On iPhone

By learning how to turn on flash notification on iPhone through configuration of accessibility setting, the iPhone can go in stealth mode – no vibration or volume – but the user can still know if there’s an SMS or call. The feature is pretty useful in instances where you can’t turn on the vibration mode. When the iPhone is placed faced down and there’s a text or call coming in, there will be three sharp flashes indicating that you need to attend your device.

Steps to turn on flash notification on iPhone

  1. Head over to Settings.
  2. Open “General” – scroll down and tap “Accessibility”.
  3. Scroll down again and there’ll be a toggle “LED Flash for Alerts”.
  4. Turn this ON to enable flash notifications. And that’s all you need to do.

Now every time you receive an SMS or call, a sharp burst of lightning from the flashlight will notify you of it. But here’s what’s interesting – the iPhone has to be kept face-down for the flashlight to be visible. Though the home-screen shine when there is a call alert or a notification by default, it can be missed easily.

We’re personally experimented with the feature, and found it pretty useful. There are folks who can’t put on vibration mode because it is irritating for some and others believe that it kills the concept of putting the iPhone in silent mode.
