    I found this bug yesterday.

    Listen to music, bring up the camera and the music stops. Hold the wired ear piece to listen to music again and the camera goes out of focus. Can't refocus until I go out of the camera app (killing the camera app from the task switcher) and back in. So looks like you can't listen to music while taking pictures with the wired ear piece.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Live photo was turned off. Does this happen to you too?

    Doesn't happen with me, using Spotify as a music player.

    Looks like it happens with Apple Music!

    Sounds like correct behavior to me. If you're using the camera, auto stopping music seems appropriate.

    Yes but the camera shouldn't go out of focus upon playing music again while in the camera app.

    True, that is a bit odd.

    Why should it be necessary for the music to stop playing if I'm snapping a still? Or if I'm just opening the app? It stops in both cases.

    If I start recording a video, I get that, but I would think that's the only time when you'd want the audio to auto-stop.

    Just my opinion. For the vast majority of people taking pictures it makes sense to stop the music. Someone wanting music to keep playing is the exception.

    Personally I've run up against this issue tons and never once *desired* for my music to be stopped for snapping a random pic. I assumed it's a hardware limitation that I just have to deal with, but I can't think, outside of video, why anyone would want this behaviour given the choice.

    As mentioned, it is just my opinion that you are the exception.

    Actually, this doesn't make sense at all, if you want the must to stop, you'll stop it. Additionally, if the camera goes out of focus and stays that way until the app is forced to restart, it's clearly not by design. This is not user error or by design, it's clearly a bug. Not sure why some insist on baselessly blaming the user like this, it's a new iOS build and bugs will be flushed out, this is one of them.

    Don't twist my words. There is no 'blaming' of anybody. It is my opinion that the stopping of music may be by design from Apple and not a bug.

    Right, clearly by design.

    I reproduced it when I had iPhone 6 because I read this issue in another thread.
    In iPhone 6 the music didn't stop, I played a song in my library (not Apple Music's one), I don't have a suscription to apple Music. So, I played a song, opened app camera and took a picture, song continued playing.
    Now I have a 6s Plus, the song stopped when I opened app camera, no live photo activated.

    If it's by design to stop the music for photos, then by your definition there is a bug because it's not doing it for me on my local library music anymore. ;)

    This must have been addressed in a recent update because I hadn't tried recently.

    Sucks because 6s probably forces it off to accommodate Live Photos. Yuck.

    Fairly lame design then. Would not have been much more difficult to have it stop when the user selects Video or Live Photo. Stopping it for stills makes little sense.
