    Hey everyone,

    I've installed the iOS5 GM on my iPhone 4 and I can't seem to find a way to enable the camera lock screen shortcut. Did I miss something? Is this an iPhone 4S exclusive benefit?

    Thank you!

    I don't have the GM so can't help directly, but they did announce that as an iOS 5 feature at WWDC, so not phone specific.

    I dont believe so. It works on my 3GS. You have to double tap the home button when the phone is in sleep mode, much like when you are just bringing up the lock screen controls for music.

    It has not worked 100% for me. Sometimes it's there and other times it's not, whether my phone is locked or not.:confused:

    Try double clicking the home button while on the lock screen to enable the music controls. Should pop up.

    Alternately double-click the home button while locked, you should be able to skip the click-to-bring-up-lockscreen step.

    Double clicking the home button worked! Thanks for the help, somehow I missed that.

    What was that about?

    I wasn't interested in any previous versions since I didn't want to deal with a buggy beta, and I wasn't a developer. I already found and installed iOS 5, on my own, thanks very much. I simply wasn't familiar with the new camera shortcut and asked a simple question that several other members were kind enough to answer.

    Sheesh, just because you're cranky it doesn't mean you should go around spreading the hate.

    A few other variables may come into play here, but has anyone timed home screen to picture capture? I know the 4S was something like 1.1 seconds, but I'm guessing the A5 has something to do with that.

    Wait, if you have to double tap to bring it up, does double tapping to bring up the music controls no longer work?

    They both come up when you double tap the home button.
