Turning on flashlight on iPhone is helpful when you are in a dark environment.

That's why this article not only covers the way to turn on flashlight on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X in iOS 11 but also provides the method to add the flashlight control to Control Center after mistake deletion. Read on to get more details.
