Can I remove the flashlight from lock screen in iOS 16 on iPhone?

remove flashlight from lock screen ios 16 iphone

Ever since I bought the new iPhone, I loved everything except the useless flashlight button on the device’s lock screen. I sometimes use the camera button on the device’s lock screen to quickly launch the camera without unlocking the device. But when I saw the flashlight icon on my iPhone’s lock screen, I found it annoying and useless.

Another reason for hating the flashlight button on the lock screen is because it is situated on the lower-left corner of the lock screen, and most of the time, I accidentally turn the flash on while taking my iPhone out from my pocket. Of course, force touching the flashlight button will turn it off, but why would I have to do it every time. It would be better to permanently disable the flashlight from the lock screen on iPhone.

How to remove flashlight on iPhone in iOS 16?

When Apple released iOS 14 and iOS 15, people expected the new option to remove the flashlight from iPhone’s lock screen, and sadly, the company did not care about it. However, users with iPhone X and later models were expecting iOS 16 to remove the flashlight from the lock screen on the iPhone feature when Apple launched the new iOS 16 at the WWDC 2022 event.

iOS 16 is currently available for limited users as the beta form. The iOS 16 public beta will release in July 2022, and the final version will release in September 2022 along with iPhone 14 series.

However, developers have already started testing the new iOS 16 beta version. But we have not seen any new iOS 16 feature to remove or change the flashlight button from the lock screen. The new iOS 16 public beta and final stable update are still on, and we may get this new feature on iOS 16 final update to change the flashlight and camera icon from the lock screen of iPhone.

If you have also installed iOS 16 beta on your iPhone and found any way to remove the flashlight from the lock screen of iPhone, kindly share with us in the comment box. Feel free to share any hidden features of the new iOS 16 update.
