I often send pictures through text/iMessages, but they are always pictures I have already taken or saved. I have never once thought, “I’m gonna take a picture - let me open my Messages app.” Previously, pressing the photo icon within Messsages brought you straight to a list of your photos to choose from. Not anymore! Now in iOS 12, I have to wait for the camera to open, then reach all the way to the top left corner, and tap the photo icon, just to bring up the photos list. It’s inconvenient and annoying. Who thought this was a good idea? And how can I disable it? I hate unnecessary extra steps that waste time.
