Siri Tip of the Day: Turn on the Flashlight

Siri can turn the flashlight on and off. Very handy, especially when you do it hands-free (via “Hey Siri”). Try it in the dark!

Siri icon, iOS 12

Very handy, especially in the dark: just say “Hey Siri, turn on the flashlight.”

You can also ask Siri to turn off the flashlight.

If you ask Siri to turn on the flashlight when it’s already on, or off when it’s already off, you get a message:

Screenshots: Siri lets you know the flashlight is already on when you ask it to be turned on a second time. Same thing for "off."
Siri knows the flashlight is already on (or already off) in case you ask for the same thing twice.
