Access camera without unlocking iOS devices
Authored by: robogobo on Mar 12, '12 01:57:59AM

The previous photos from the library are available if there's no pass code set for the phone. That also allows you to bypass the slide to unlock when pressing the home button. This makes perfect sense. The camera slider is both opening the camera app and unlocking the phone. If a pass code is set, you have to enter it when you're finished using the camera if you want to do anything that would normally require entering the pass code.

This is reminiscent of the alternate method of unlocking used by the jailbreak tweak Lockinfo- possibly another UI element "borrowed" from a jailbreak developer by Apple. Even though I no longer Jailbreak, this is the main reason I always supported the non sanctioned devs. We have all gained from their innovation.
