    I downloaded app for iPhone on iPad, EXIF Photo Viewer by Takahiro Ishihara. I run it, then I switched to multitasking by pressing 2x Home Button and I saw this: (attached file).

    I scanned iTunes gift card before 2 weeks and this photo just appears now. What is this???

    No jailbreak, iOS 9.3.1, iPad Pro 12.9inch

    "App Store > Scan Card"

    I can already assume it's just a feature the App Store uses to make entering credit card numbers easier, by taking a picture of the card and analyzing the numbers on the face. You probably accidentally hit the scan button somehow.

    If you're truely paranoid about your camera, though, you could easily just put tape over the camera...

    If Apple is wiling to fight the FBI for your privacy, I doubt they would invaded your privacy by taking pictures of your living room. The scan card feature on the Apple Store add was just still running because iPad Pro was able to keep the app running in memory

    When I run that exif app, it shows my photo in multitasking, like on screenshot. When I force quit that app, and I multitask again, I see regular App Store.
