The intelligent True Tone Flash consist of two LEDs, one white and one amber. When you’ve to take a picture in low light, flash enabled, the iSight camera uses the software algorithms to analyse the color temperature of the scene so that it would adjust the flash sensitivity. You could get the perfect white light and amber combinations.
