The iPhone is the ultimate modern convergence device, seamlessly combining telephone, music player, and internet communicator all into one. Thanks to Control Center and the LED flash, however, the iPhone is only ever a swipe away from being something more — a flashlight! From kitchen to bedroom to car to studio to server room, your iPhone as a flashlight isn't just convenient, it can be a life-saver.
