I some time find ringtones annoying on my phone, therefore I set the phone on vibration. Due to this setting I missed some of my calls, messages and other alert on the phone. I hate missing alerts, yet I am still reluctant to put the volume up on my ringer. Therefore I decided to use my iPhone flash light for notifications
An easy, built-in workaround is to enable the flash light on your iPhone to flash whenever you receive notifications. It is the same light used as the camera flash and flashlight, so it is bright enough to see during the day and perfect for catching alerts.
In fact, it is bright enough that I can usually see it flashing through my pockets, so it is good idea to enable iPhone flash light for notifications.
LED Flash Alerts
With this kind of alert, the LED (or light-emitting diode) used as the flash for your iPhone’s camera–blinks when you have an alert. These LED flash alerts allow you to know when you need to check your phone without looking at the screen or having the volume turned on.
This is a quick guide to making your iPhone flash light up for phone calls, text messages, and all other notifications you can get on your phone.
