You may know the camera flash on your iPhone could be used as a flashlight (and if you didn’t, hey, you’ll learn two new things here).  But did you know that with iOS 10 and 3D Touch built into iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s models, you can adjust the brightness level of the flashlight?

Here’s how:

[wpvideo XJc7uqeR w=700 h=623 autoplay=true loop=true]

• Swipe up from the bottom of your Home screen to bring up Control Center
• Tap and press down on the Flashlight button—this activates the Quick Actions Menu
• Then choose which level of brightness you need: low light, medium, or bright

The Quick Actions Menu is part of 3D Touch.  If you’re pressing but can’t seem to get the menu to appear, take a deep breath… it’s OK.  You can adjust the sensitivity of how hard or light you press to something that works for you.

Here’s how:

• Tap the Settings app
• Tap General
• Tap Accessibility
• Tap 3D Touch

The firmer you adjust the sensitivity, the harder you’ll have to press to activate 3D Touch and bring up Quick Actions Menus (you actually learned three things!)
