I keep my iPhone on mute most of the day. I lay it on my desk, and check it for alerts from time to time. My hearing is such that I don’t pickup on the vibration the phone makes while muted. Wouldn’t it be great if I could still tell when there was a notification on my phone? How about a flashing light?
This quick little “how-to” is going to show how to set your iPhone’s LED Flash as a notification light. Whenever you get a call, text, tweet or other notification, the iPhone LED will start flashing.
It’s easy to enable the “LED Flash for Alerts.” Just do the following:
- Launch the Settings app.
- Tap “General.”
- Scroll down the “General” settings until you see the “Accessibility” option.
- Tap “Accessibility.”
- Scroll down until you see the “LED Flash for Alerts” option.
- Touch the switch to the right of the option to flip it to “On.”
That’s it, easy-peasy, your LED flash on the back of your iPhone 4/4S will now flash when you receive a notification.
