More Information

Once you get to the LED Flash for Alerts menu in the Accessibility settings, you will see that there are a couple of other options there, too.

These include options for Flash While Unlocked and Flash in Silent Mode. These allow you to control whether or not you get the flash notification when your device is unlocked, or when you have put the phone into silent mode with the switch on the left side of the device.

Note that the flash alert can be very bright, which makes it especially noticeable in dark environments. This is something to be aware of if you have these notifications enabled and you are in a dark theater, or when you are in bed at night.
