Make Your iPhone Flash When You Get a Notification
These days it's extremely common to have your phone on silent for long periods of time and sometimes this causes you to miss certain notifications if you're not close to your phone. A great way to prevent this is by enabling flash alerts for all notifications.
This is the same light that flashes when you snap a photo so its definitely bright enough to be seen during the day and even through some clothing. If you'd rather have a visual cue over an auditory one, here’s how you can turn the setting on:
- Open your settings app
- Tap "General"
- Tap "Accessibility"
- Scroll down a little bit
- Tap "Enable LED Flash for Alerts"
