    I have a little idea for the iPhone: when the flashlight is on, a little flashlight icon should appear at the top, just like how the rotation lock icon appears when it's on. I know a few times I've accidentally turned the flashlight on or forget to turn it off and I'm sure many have done the same. The flashlight icon would be great

    Just this morning I was thinking about how stupid it is that you have to wake up the phone and swipe up just to turn off the light. There should be a quicker way to do it.

    Activator…Short hold on Power Button.

    At least that's how my setup is.

    Then there's Candlelight…

    Sorry guys. Advantages of being jailbroken. :)

    Seems more or less the same as the silent switch which you need to look at or at least feel to know what position it's in. That hasn't changed in all these years, so it sounds like it's not that likely it would be for flashlight.

    Agreed. It's easy to do and in potential sunlight, you wouldn't be able to notice it's on.
