Touch camera icon in lock screen to turn off flashlight Phones
In iOS 7, suppose you trigger the flashlight via Notification Center.

After using the flashlight, you don't have to swipe up the Control Center and tap the flashlight icon again to turn it off—no, no. There's a simpler way.

Trigger the lock screen, and then simply touch the camera icon in the bottom right corner: The flashlight goes off.

"[T]rigger the flashlight via Notification Center"? You mean trigger the flashlight via Control Center. You can't turn on the flashlight via Notification Center.

Doesn't work for me: Pressing the camera icon just makes the lock screen bounce.
