Did you know that each time you get a notification, your iPhone can use its LED flash to let you know when to pick up your phone? That's right, LED flash alerts have been around for quite some time, and they're also present on the latest iPhone lineup. So, let's waste no more time. Here's how to turn ON/OFF flash alerts for notifications on your iPhone 13. 

Note

What you'll read below applies to the entire iPhone 13 lineup (iPhone 13, Mini, Pro, and Pro Max). However, the same applies to previous iPhone generations that can run iOS 15.

2. Scroll a bit down and tap on 'Accessibility.'

Steps to Enable Flash for Notifications on iPhone 13

Once you enable the 'LED Flash for Alerts' feature, your device will blink its flash each time you get a notification (including phone calls, messages, emails, and similar). However, that will happen only while your device is locked. When unlocked, notifications will appear in the top portion of your screen, capturing your attention in that specific way.
