    Question How do I get the iPhone 5S LED notification to work??

    I turned the LED notification on within the iOS software, but for some reason it's not working...

    How can I switch it on??

    Mmm, now I noticed only the LED on the back of the phone flashes...
    Kinda strange to put the LED notify you on the back, since most of us (including myself) usually lay down the phone on the back, so we can't see it flashing!!

    Smart choice to put the LED flash on the back where hardly anyone sees it. :P

    Um, yeah. See, the iPhone (thankfully) doesn’t have a LED for any kind of notification. The whole “let’s use the camera flash for that” was added for those with accessibility issues. At best, it’s a kludge, added on after the fact.

    If you want a bona fide LED for notifications, you’re going to have to buy a device that offers one. #sorryaboutyourluck

    Yeah .. What they said. People who are deaf are more likely to have vibration & this led feature on.
