We've all been there, you're in the doctors, in a meeting, having dinner with the fam or on a polite, first date, and you just have to put your phone on silent.

And what ensues is sweaty palms, butterflies in your tummy and the anxiety of missing an important text or call.

Well, fear not, this simple iPhone hack will solve all of your problems. It enables your camera's flash to go off three times when you get texts, calls and other notifications. So all you gotta do is leave your phone screen-down in front of you. 

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Hearing, and enable LED flash for Alerts.
