In his latest post, Benny mentions that most modern phones have a light that flashes when there is a new message or call. However, the iPhones does not. Benny explains that there is a way.
The phone’s camera flash can be set to notify users of new events. However, the flash is on the back of the phone and it will only activate if the device is in ‘locked’ mode.
“The cool thing about the LED flash notification is that it works even when your phone is on silent. Since I usually leave my phone on silent at work, this comes in handy. I did notice the blinking flash, even in the brightness of my office, so it definitely works,” Benny says.
However, he also mentions an additional solution, by way of a new case called Flashr. The case redistributes the flash, giving a subtle glow when there is a notification.
The one drawback Benny can see is that, in order to take a photo, users will be required to switch the device back to ‘Photography’ mode, thus removing the cameras convenient camera access.
This drawback aside, Benny claims to be impressed with the list of customization features that Flashr offers, as well an option for the case to sport the Apple logo.
“Still, it’s great to know you can set a flash notification for texts and phone calls, whether you buy a case to enhance these features or not. The flash notification may also have a little bit of an impact on your battery life, especially if you’re so popular that your phone is constantly receiving incoming calls and texts,” Benny concludes.
