    can u do this now? like when u take a pic from the lock screen and u go to the "quick camera roll".it makes u go back the home screen first even if u don't have a password enabled. did they change this in ios 6? it's just a pain in the ass extra step

    Nope. Kinda unfortunate and it means you have to unlock and go to Photos just to do it. I guess in a way it's smart so people can't take a picture and upload it to Facebook or Twitter if they get your phone. On the other hand it's inconvenient, especially if you don't have a passcode set.

    Sorry, but this should absolutely unquestionably not be introduced. The implications for people being able to Facebook and Tweet pictures without knowing the passcode would be... very bad.

    The point the original poster is making is that if the phone does NOT have a passcode set (or has one, but the timeout has not yet kicked in) then the quick-access camera slider should allow them to access their camera roll and its related operations.

    Maybe as an option, otherwise I would share the same concerns as The Phazer.

    No, you're still not understanding me. We're saying that if the device isn't locked with a passcode, then it doesn't matter if the quick-access camera allows you to post to Twitter/Facebook, because any person could just swipe-to-unlock and do it from the Home Screen anyway.

    There should be a restrictions setting for it.

    Yeah, that's a good point.

    The reason that this is bad is that it adds incentive for people to not use a passcode.

    You don't want people saying "well, I would use a passcode, but then I lose all these cool features!"

    Not that it's Apple's job to protect us, but I think it would be a mistake for them to willingly introduce items into the "con" list for when you make a pro/con list for "should I use a passcode?"

    That's a good point too. It's really a toss-up.

    The Camera-from-lock already behaves differently depending on whether it's passcode-locked or not. If with-passcode then you can't view photos taken before your current session; you can when locked without-passcode.

    I see no reason why the Camera-from-lock-without-passcode shouldn't behave exactly the same as regular Camera. It should just be a shortcut to the Camera app!
