    Works fine for me ... but I'm on dev beta. Reboot your device... did you recently have an issue where it told you it was too hot?

    Try restarting your device.
    Did it use to work?

    Try taking a picture using the flash. That may enable the icon.

    Flashlight doesn't work for me either. The botton is enabled but pushing it doesn't turn it on. The camera flash similarly doesn't work after this update. I've also tried 3rd party apps with no luck. Rebooted multiple times no change.

    Did you try taking a picture using the flash? If not, try that and see if it enables the flashlight.

    Wow! I don't know what to tell you, except to try resetting all settings. I mean, the flashlight feature works on my device running the latest dev beta.

    I just noticed my camera flash wasn't working. Checked the flashlight in the control center, it was grayed out. Here's what I did.
    1. Hard reset (restart phone)
    2. Swiped camera out of multitasking.
    3. Set flash to ON. It works.
    2. Set flash to AUTO. It works only in the dark as it should.
    The stock camera does not have a flashlight setting for the flash, where it stays on. Third party cameras have that. The stock does have the Magnifier feature that can be enabled for that purpose.
    The flashlight in the control center is no longer grayed out.
