iOS 7 comes with some brand-new features, but of all these changes, the Control Center really stands out. It feels like that it should have been out there since the start. But as they say, better late than never. iOS 7 users are able to bring up the Control Center from any screen, even the lockscreen and then turn on the flashlight with a single tap. This little option eliminated the need for installing any third-party flashlight apps.

When you use the flashlight for a long time, naturally the iPhone’s screen turns off. The process to turn it off is the same to turn it on, which means you’ll need to press the home or wake button, bring up the Control Center and then tap on the flashlight icon. Well, that’s quite lengthy isn’t it? Not exactly a burden, but if you want to save those precious seconds, there’s a simple trick to quickly turn off the iPhone’s flashlight.
