iPhone Flashlight Stopped Working

Has anybody else here ever had their iPhone's flashlight stop working? As in grayed out and can't even select it? My phone said it was too hot this morning (which is odd considering I hadn't used it all night), so I'm wondering if that has to do with it.

I'm also wondering if my phone case is causing it to run hot, but I've used the same case for years without issues.

I've never had that happen, that's odd. I even once accidentally left it on for several hours while asleep and it still worked after I had turned it off/restarted the phone. Could it be an issue with your phone's temperature gauge?
