iPhone flashlight iOS 18: How it works

Apple is known for its impressive attention to detail and a simple but important iPhone feature has received some of that love. Here’s how the all-new iPhone flashlight in iOS 18 works with the Dynamic Island and new functionality.

Up until now, the iPhone has featured a basic native flashlight with an on/off toggle on the Lock Screen and the ability to pick between four levels of brightness when using Control Center.

Now the native experience in iOS 18 comes with improved functionality and a delightful UI on iPhones with the Dynamic Island. Along with more control over brightness, the new experience offers beam width control.

Note: This is how the flashlight experience looks on iPhones with a Dynamic Island in iOS 18

  1. Make sure you’re running the iOS 18 beta on your iPhone (full guide)
  2. Turn on the flashlight from the Lock Screen, Control Center, or ask Siri to turn it on
  3. Now you’ll see the new flashlight UI appear in the Dynamic Island
  4. The slick new flashlight features a horizontal slider to adjust beam width (wide, medium, and narrow)
  5. Swipe the vertical slider to adjust the brightness
  6. Tap the flashlight in the Dynamic Island to turn it off or back on
  7. The flashlight icon stays in the Dynamic Island until you turn it off

There appear to be 6 or 7 levels of brightness you can swipe between giving more flexibility than the 4 we’ve had with iOS previously.

Here is how the new flashlight in iOS 18 looks on an iPhone 15 Pro:
