    You have to double-tap the home button.

    Where is lock screen camera?

    I thought that iOS 5 would allow us to have a camera icon on the lock screen. Is this something that you need to set up? I can't seem to find a spot to do that. Thanks for any help.

    Do you always have to double press? If so, doesn't that defeat the whole purpose?

    Camera button on Lock Screen

    Did anyone else notice that the camera button on the lock screen is not showing up? I searched all over for the option to enable this and I couldn't find anything. Was this left out? Am I missing something???

    Did you double click on the lock screen? It only appears when you do that.
