ios – iPhone Camera app doesn’t work but some other apps can still use it

I’ve seen this be a temporary situation.


  1. Power off your phone – normal controlled shut down
  2. Power it on – test camera app before you run any other app

If that fails, back up and restore the phone. I’ve not seen erase all content and settings fix this, but I always try that before I restore since it’s a lot faster and I’m about to reload a backup either way at that point.

Once you’re sure it’s not a software issue, then it’s time for a hardware repair or swap. Apple has replaced my camera module on that model phone and I was extremely satisfied with the results. Much cheaper than a new phone as well even if you pay for the repair instead of AppleCare or warranty.
