How to use flashlight on iPad Pro with iOS 11

On the iPad Pro, a LED flash was added a year ago. To be more precise, now there is such a flash on every iPad Pro available in

sale. However, iOS did not contain flashlight features for the iPad. This has changed since iOS 11.

Does your function support iPad?

The function only works on iPad with iOS 11 and LED flash. Here are all supported models: iPad Pro 9.7, iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Pro 12.9 (both generations).

On older models (including iPad Air and iPad Air 2) and iPad mini there is no LED flash, so they do not support this function.
