iOS 10 has got tons of all new features to boost its claim of being the most feature-rich mobile OS on the planet. Ever since the latest version of iOS was announced at WWDC 2016, I have been testing it out. And believe me; it has been quite successful in making a good impression.
Among several changes what I really appreciate is the option to access camera by simply swiping the screen from right to left. You no longer have to swipe up on the camera icon from the Lockscreen to access the same. It’s just a little tweak, isn’t it?
But, what if you want to prevent the camera access from the Lockscreen? You can restrict it if you don’t want anyone to use your iPhone camera without your permission. Here is how it works.
How to Disable Camera Access from the Lockscreen in iOS 10
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device, tap on General.
Step #2. Now, you need to scroll down and tap on Restrictions. (If you haven’t yet set it up, you will have to enable it.)
Step #3. You need to set a passcode.
Step #4. Finally, turn off the switch next to Camera icon. Then, exit the settings.

How to Re-enable Camera Access from Lockscreen in iOS 10
If you ever happen to change your mind or wish to access camera instantly, you can re-enable it.

Personally, I keep Camera disabled so that it’s not accessible from the Lockscreen.
