Apple iPhone X and XS users want to eliminate this button from the main lock screen

New Delhi: If you are an Apple iPhone X or iPhone XS user and have often wondered how your smartphone’s LED flashlight turns on its own when you don’t do anything, you are absolutely not alone. Over 500 users of iPhone X and iPhone XS users have taken this to Apple’s discussion forum, talking about it.
Even though this is not a bug and something that is triggered by users itself, what’s bothering iPhone users is the flashlight button present at the main lock screen. The unintended activating of the flashlight on iPhones not just makes the users’ cynosure but also drains out the handset battery severely.
“The flashlight keeps on getting activated in my pants front pocket. It drains my battery and I end noticing the light is on when the phone becomes very hot. How can I remove this short cut from the lock screen?” complained an Apple user on the discussion forums.
On the other hand, some even suggested a couple of solutions. While one of them suggested turning off 3D Touch to stop the accidental activation, the other one said that people can turn off Tap to Wake feature.
One user said, “What's happening is as your phone is being jostled when you walk, the screen is getting active. Turning off Tap to Wake option would fix this problem without removing the flashlight.” You can turn off this feature by steering through Settings > General > Accessibility > Turn off Tap to Wake.
Doesn’t matter how much the accidental triggering of the flashlight irritates you; there seems to be no solution coming from Apple. As of now, the company seems to be busy in rolling out the fix for the Group FaceTime bug. We will also be witnessing the next-gen iOS version, iOS 13 getting introduced.
