Question: Remove flashlight and camera shortcut from iPhone X lock screen

I'd be grateful if someone could tell me how to remove the flashlight and camera shortcuts from my iPhone X lock screen. They are not shortcuts I need and detract from the beauty of the lock screen. Neither my iPad of iPhone 7+ have them and both are running IOS 11.


Thanks in advance.

iPhone X, iOS 11.1

Not really. You can remove the camera icon from your lock screen, but that would require you to turn your camera off completely off in restrictions, which would mean you'd have to turn it back on in restrictions, so not a good solution.

Thanks, that is helpful.


Sometimes got to wonder what Apple are thinking and why they feel the need to dictate something as trivial as 'shortcuts'. Apple, if you are reading this, can users please have a 'choice' in this matter. The short cuts are not something i use or need and detract from the 'experience' of using an iPhone. Could we please have the choice of retaining or removing shortcuts please.


I must say that overall, I am a bit dissapointed with the iPhone X.. my fault for pre-ordering something I had not actually seen in the flesh, but anyway.


Thanks
