    This is a totally random question, but when using the flashlight in Control Center on a 5s, which flash does it use? I don't have one yet, and was just wondering this...

    Both LEDs.

    Just did it on my 5s to check and now have those "sunspots" in my eyes, thanks! ;)

    Both, although the upper white flash is much brighter (so actually the fact theres light on the lower orange one might be because it's leaking from the white one?). Either way, it's very bright! And yup, spots in my vision too now.

    Yes. Control center is built into iOS 7.

    I kind of think that it is only the white one, but because it is so bright it bleeds to the amber one. I held a piece of paper directly over the white LED bulb and the amber one was not on, but the white was so bright it appeared it was actually on.

    I also speculate this because when used next to an iPhone 4S/5, the flashlight is not much brighter.

    Great. I probably won't use it much because I've got a flashlight in my study room and bedroom lol :)

    Thanks!!

    is the flashlight significantly brighter since it uses both of the LED's?
