    I am running IOS 11 PB2 on my 12.9" version 1 iPad Pro and I noticed that there is no flashlight feature in the Control Center. I went into settings > Control Center > Customize Controls thinking I just had to turn it on, but there is no Flashlight there either. Yet when watching videos of IOS 11 being used on iPads they do have a flashlight control and in one case the person in the video showed how to adjust the Flashlight output. He did it just as I would do on my iPhone, but I do not have any flashlight. What happened?

    In the video he is using an iPad Pro 9.7," is this why that this device has the flashlight and the 12.9 does not?

    To be honest when running IOS 10 on my 12.9 I never noticed or attempted to use the flashlight as it is a little awkward to do on a device this large, so I actually never noticed whether or not it had a flashlight feature. That being said, should I be seeing a flashlight and if so what do I have to do to turn it on?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the iPad Pro 12.9" first gen has an LED flash on it.

    You're correct. There is no flash on the iPad Pro first 12.9 Generation. It's only the second Generation iPad that has a flash, which is from the iPhone 7 camera.
