    I wish Apple would add two clicks of the power button to get into the camera quickly regardless if the phone is locked or unlocked.

    I like that about my android phones. Would you use this feature?

    Maybe, but I can’t say for certain. Right now, I’m used to either swiping left from the lock screen or going into the Camera app while at my lock screen.

    i just like the double click because it's so much quicker. Really helps me capture moments with my dog.

    I don’t doubt you, and heck, I may even use it if implemented....

    I agree, would be nice to have this. I loved the long press of the Windows Phone camera button and the double click on my pixel power button for this. I am still adjusting to the swipe from lockscreen.

    I hope they do it one day. I mean I doubt they'll randomly add it to iOS 11 but i could be wrong. Hope i'm wrong. lol.

    No. I would not use that.

    I like the current functionality.

    I have no problem swiping left on the lockscreen for the camera. I can get a shot off in less than one second.

    I much prefer the slide of the lock screen get to the camera. It's quicker for me. Just varies person to person.

    The power button already has multiple functions:
    On/off, dismiss a call, calling Emergency number, showing the medical info and such.
    Adding a double tap will only complicate the functionality of that button more.
    As you know, complicating stuff goes against everything what Apple stands for.

    If you can find a better solution, let them now via https://www.apple.com/feedback/.

    On (that's 1 function)
    off (2 functions)
    dismiss a call (3)
    calling Emergency number (4)
    showing the medical info (5)
    and such (6+).

    Ask Apple. Nobody here knows for sure why Apple didn’t allow both.

    It's a valid topic of debate. Why do you think Apple don't allow both? Obviously the "complexity" argument does not stand up.

    If you think that’s complicated, then I don’t have anything else to say to you.
    I stand by my previous post.
    Stop badgering people in this forum and send a https://www.apple.com/feedback/ feedback to Apple.
    Nobody, and I really mean nobody here can make what you want happen.

    Feel free to start a petition on the various petition platforms on the internet. Maybe you’ll get your wish and the iPhone something something will get it someday.

    You are saying that a button with six functions (and maybe more) is not complicated?
    You are also saying that adding a seventh (or maybe eighth, etc) function would be an unnecessary complication?

    Stop badgering people in this forum and send a https://www.apple.com/feedback/ feedback to Apple.
    Why do you assume that I didn't give feedback to Apple already? I already told you that I might have done.
    And why are you badgering people for supporting a request from someone else for a clearly rather popular feature? We are testing out the idea out by discussing it - that's the point of these forums, right?

    Now, let's get back on topic. So far, the only arguments against are:
    1. I don't want it. Fair enough, but people who don't want to use it don't have to. I don't personally use every feature of my phone, but I'm not asking for any to be dropped.
    2. It's unnecessarily complicated, which I think we have disproved above.
    Any more?

    It's completely unnecessary. There are already multiple ways to EASILY open the camera app. You are just choosing to argue against using those multiple existing ways.

    Maybe, but, let's face it - the home button already has a ton of different functions. Single click, double-click for the recent task list (or spaces in iOS 11 iPad), double-tap for reachability, triple click for a number of functions in settings / accessibility. I think people wanting a double click of power for camera sounds reasonable. Or some way with gestures (i.e., raise to wake and turn landscape with the phone held vertically.)

    Motorola has the twist the phone twice to launch the camera, so I'm sure that's got some weird patent on it, or that might not be a bad gesture, either.

    You can always turn it off if you don't want it.

    Of course, you can always "Hey Siri, take a photo" if I am not mistaken.

    I doubt if they’ll change it. It’s convenient to swipe left & double clicking is extremely convenient for Apple Pay.
