    This can't be by accident I sense a running theme joke by Apples software team. Will it be another 3 months until we get it back. Swipe up from button no longer has a Flashlight Button.

    It's in the VIP builds but there isn't a VIP build for iOS 10 yet.

    I think it's ******** that there still isn't a flashlight option. I don't see one coming until all newer iPad models get the camera flash.

    I shouldn't have to do that, but I guess I have to.

    Beyond silly that Apple keeps overlooking this. It can be very handy.

    I never realized my iPad pro 9.7 had a flash even LOL. I can't see myself ever using it as a flashlight. Although one reason I suppose is that if there was a power failure but otherwise I wonder what practical use a flashlight is on the iPad Pro?

    Long battery life then a flashlight if the screen turns off but light is still on. Not sure that is possible however!

    Try the usual swipe up. Then swipe to the left or right. If you swipe up and see the music app, then just swipe left or right on the music app to see the familiar flashlight, wifi, etc.
