Turning your Apple Watch into a flashlight may consume a lot of battery of your smart watch; however, there are occasions when you have to use a flashlight on your Apple Watch. With the watchOS 4, Apple has introduced this new feature in Apple Watch also. If you have downloaded and installed watchOS 4 on your Apple Watch, you can easily use flashlight in watchOS 4 on Apple Watch.
Note that it is a feature introduced in the OS and therefore, you can use it on your older Apple Watch other than Apple Watch Series 3. Let’s check how to turn ON or OFF Flashlight in Apple Watch.
How to Use Flashlight on Apple Watch in watchOS 4
Step #1: Launch watch face on your Apple Watch.
Step #2: Bring up Control Center by swiping up from the bottom of your watch.
Step #3: The newly designed Control Center will have Flashlight icon among other features.
Step #4: Here, you need to tap on Flashlight icon.
Unlike iPhone’s Flashlight feature, Apple Watch offers three different modes in Flashlight: white, flashing white, and red. You can use red mode when you don’t want to call attention to yourself.
Step #5: To select any one mode, you need to swipe horizontally on watch screen and choose any one mode by tapping on it.
Step #6: To turn off Flashlight, simply swipe down from the top of watch screen and tap on Dismiss.
You should use this Flashlight feature very carefully so that Apple Watch battery doesn’t get drained quickly. Remember that your smart watch has battery life of nearly 18 hours; if you use flashlight without any discretion, you need to fix Apple Watch battery drain issues if you are running it on watchOS 4.
