Quick Access to your iPhone or iPad Camera – Video Tip

I can’t believe I didn’t post this tip many years ago, but hopefully it will still help some newer iPhone or iPad users.

If you want to take a quick picture of something, it is a pain to swipe and unlock your screen. And even a bigger pain if you are doing the right thing and using your fingerprint or lock code to keep your phone locked.

Well, Apple listened to its users and added a clean and simple way to get to your camera with ONE swipe of your finger…here’s how:

  1. Push your Home button at the bottom of your iPhone or iPad
  2. Tap and swipe the small camera icon in the lower right corner upwards to get instant access to your camera

That’s it! Really! Watch the short video below for a demonstration and please pass this tip along to your fellow iPhone and iPad owners!
