    Hello I have an iPhoneX running ios 12. How the heck do you prevent people from deleting your pictures or accessing photos when the phone is locked. Now that we do not have the ability to remove the camera or flashlight from lock screen any longer, now it also seems that we cannot prevent access to Photos and the ability to DELETE all photos all when the phone is supposed to be "locked". Can this be true or am I missing something painfully obvious?

    There is no access to all photos when the phone is locked.

    Uhmmm...Access the camera from the lock screen. Then tap the photos on the bottom left. You can see/delete/edit all photos!

    I don't think you remove those, they are just there by default. But without you unlocking your device yourself no one else would be able to access all photos or anything else on the phone (just the camera and flashlight basically, assuming you also have control center access from the lock screen disabled, and other things like Siri access from lock screen disabled).

    Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls. That allows you to remove Camera, Flashlight from Control Center.

    And can remove Control Center from lock screen with Settings > Touch/Face ID & Passcode "Allow Access When Locked" to off for Control Center.

    I don't think any of that affects the camera and flashlight options on the lock screen though.
