It’s safe to say that one of the most useful additions to any iOS device is the Flashlight. I myself use it on a regular basis. I can still recall the time when iPhones don’t have this particular function and you need to jailbreak in order to gain access to a fully-functional flashlight or torch app. In case you don’t know, the Flashlight option can be access by swiping up on your iPhone screen and invoking the Control Center.
