Access camera without unlocking iOS devices
Authored by: pulykamell on Apr 24, '12 08:01:58PM

Thanks for this tip. I've had iOS 5.1 for however long it's been out, and it never occurred to me until today to see if there was a way to take a picture without unlocking the phone. As somebody said above, in iOS 5.0, you just tapped the camera button and the camera would launch. In 5.1, doing that just causes the screen to bounce a little. I assumed that in the update, they disabled this as some sort of security feature or god knows what. I'm not entirely sure why Apple decided a swipe gesture is better than touching an on-screen icon, but at least now I know how to activate the camera without unlocking the phone. Thanks!
