Quick Access to your iPhone Camera

screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-11-05-20-am Sometimes you need to take a picture…. quickly. You don’t have time to go through the steps of unlocking your phone and finding your way to your camera icon.

Apple gave us a shortcut a while ago, with the camera icon available from the lock screen. However, I noticed in recent iOS updates, this shortcut was gone. But that’s ok ….. because we have a new improved way to quickly get to the camera.

How to get to the camera (one step!) from your lock screen:

From your lock screen, simply swipe LEFT. From the right side to the left side.

That’s it. There’s your camera!!!

Really quick and easy, and perfect for capturing that photo that just won’t wait.

    Thank you for this tip. I have been swiping UP and that sometimes takes 2-3 swipes and then one still needs to click on the camera icon. So merci beaucoup for this much better method.

I'd love to hear what you think!
