How to Make Your iPhone Light Up When You Get a Message


The iPhone's vibrate notification can sometimes be too loud for certain situations such as a silent classroom or work environment. As an alternative, the iPhone has an accessibility feature for the hearing impaired in which you can set your iPhone screen to flash as an alert for notifications, such as the receipt of text messages or email.

  • Tap to launch the "Settings" app and select "General."

  • Tap "Accessibility."

  • Tap the "ON/OFF" toggle next to LED Flash for Alerts in the Hearing section so that it displays ON.

  • Press the "Home" button to return to your iPhone's home screen. Your iPhone screen will now flash when you receive text messages.
