If the flashlight won’t work on your iPhone SE 2020, you can usually troubleshoot the issue in a matter of minutes and get your trusty light shining again.
A nearly exhausted battery can prevent an iPhone SE 2020 flashlight from working, especially if the phone is very warm or cold.
If you cannot find your flashlight in your iPhone SE 2020 Control Center, you may have accidentally removed it, but you can quickly add it back in the Settings app.
Even the most prepared people rarely walk around with a flashlight in their pockets, but these days, there’s really no reason to when our iOS devices have a decent flashlight built right in. While not bright enough to fill a large room with light or to cast a beam dozens of feet ahead down a hiking trail, an iPhone SE 2020 flashlight creates more than enough light to help you find your dropped keys, read in a tent, light up the sidewalk ahead of you, or rock out at a concert.
How to troubleshoot your iPhone SE 2020 flashlight not working issue
If your iPhone SE 2020 flashlight isn’t working, however, you don’t necessarily have to be left in the dark.
Here are four ways to fix an iPhone SE 2020 flashlight that won’t turn on.
Charge your iPhone
If your iPhone’s battery is almost zero, the flashlight may not work. This is all the more true if the phone is very warm or very cold, conditions that already reduce its proper function. Charge your iPhone , get it down to a moderate temperature, and try again.

Close the Camera app
If your iPhone SE 2020 camera app is open, the flashlight won’t be able to take control of the LED. Please follow these steps to close the camera app on your iPhone SE 2020:
Simply double-click the Home button quickly, either on the home screen or in an app. Once you do that, all active apps will appear on-screen, in the order of when they were last used. From the switcher, locate the Camera app, and swipe up on its card.
Restart your iPhone
Turning your iPhone SE 2020 off and on again may refresh the software and restore the flashlight. Here is how:
Step 1: The first thing that you have to do is hold the Power button / Side button until you see the power off slider on the screen.
Step 2: Now, you have to drag the Slider from left to right and wait 30 seconds for your 2020 iPhone SE to turn off.
Step 3: To turn it back on, simply press and hold the Power button / Side button until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
Reset your iPhone settings
If a basic restart doesn’t do it, reset your phone’s settings. You won’t lose any data, images, or other stuff, but you may need to reset your wallpaper and alarms and other basics.
Step 1: Start the “Settings” app, then tap on “General.”
Step 2: Now, tap “Reset,” and finally “Reset All Settings.”
Step 3: Tap “Confirm.”
We trust one or a combination of these fixes worked for you and your iPhone SE 2020 flashlight is working again. Now you know what to do if flashlight is not working on your iPhone SE 2020.
