5.) Tap on the Flash icon on the upper left corner (iPhone 4 only), and tap it again to change it to either On, Off, or Auto.

Watch your disk space when recording video

Before you start filming your next feature-length Hollywood production from your iPhone, keep in mind that recording video can quickly fill up your iPhone’s disk space (at a rate of about 80MB per minute of video). You can check how much space you have left on your iPhone by opening Settings>General>About.
