  • iOS 18 will make it possible to control the flashlight’s radius, so you can make the light wider or narrower.
  • The flashlight UI is different, and offers quick controls for changing both intensity and radius.

Apple’s WWDC 2024 event brought forth a bunch of goodies, including a bunch of new features and the expected AI introductions. The iPhone flashlight is something that doesn’t usually get much attention, though. After all, it’s a simple capability that “just works.” You can turn it on and off. What else would you need?

Surprisingly, Apple did give the flashlight function some attention this time around. Mainly, that iOS 18 will allow users to change the flashlight button on the lock screen, helping people avoid turning it on by accident. We’ve found a little extra feature Apple didn’t mention at the event, though!
