Set iPhone Camera LED to Flash on Incoming Calls and Alerts
The iPhone’s camera LED flash can be used to alert you to incoming calls, messages, and other alerts. With this feature enabled, anytime a call comes in the devices LED will flash repeatedly, even when the iPhone is on silent mode.
Enable LED Flash Alert for iPhone with iOS 5
- Tap on the “Settings” app and then on “General”
- Select “Accessibility” and toggle the ON switch next to “LED Flash for Alerts”
This was an old jailbreaking tweak, but Apple adopted it as an accessibility feature for iOS 5. Undeniably useful for those with hearing difficulties, it’s also genuinely useful for those of us who regularly keep their phones on mute.
Thanks to Barry S. for sending in the great tip!
