When your flashlight is On, there is just one way to turn it Off. Even when your screen is a lock, you can still turn it Off. Just swipe from right to left on your iPhone screen to bring up the camera and the flashlight will switch Off.

Why does my flashlight keep turning on iPhone 12?

One of the reasons your iPhone flashlight keeps turning on itself is because you are accidentally touching the flashlight icon on the lower left of the screen with your thumb or palm. This can be annoying as the flashlight will keep draining your device’s battery life.

Unfortunately, the flashlight shortcut cannot be removed from the lock screen, but there are several ways to quickly turn it off. If your flashlight is turning on while inside your pocket, the best thing to do is to turn off the Tap to Wake feature.

You can do this by going to the Settings > General > Accessibility > Turn off Tap to Wake. However if the flashlight is on because of the accidental touch of a hand, just swipe to the left very slightly from the lock screen to turn it off. Another way is to ask Siri to handle the task. Just say “Hey Siri, turn off the flashlight,” or “Hey Siri, disable the torch. Or “Hey Siri, flashlight off,” and “Hey Siri, torch off.”
