Guide: How to open the camera from the iPhone lock screen | iOS 9

If the iPhone is locked, there’s a shortcut to quickly open the Camera app straight away. Slide the camera icon in the bottom right corner up until the Camera app appears.

For added security, users aren’t able to look through camera roll items, or see past photo history beyond what has just been taken if the passcode was enabled when the Camera app was opened via this method.
