How to remove the camera button on the iPhone lock screen without removing the camera from the springboard

I don't want to allow people without access to take pictures using my phone (pictures are shared automatically by iCloud) But in the same time, I want to be able to use the camera from the springboard.

I'm searching for a native solution under iOS 8.x or later

The only way this can be done is by using Settings > General > Restrictions to disable the use of the camera completely. A side effect is that FaceTime is also disabled.

There is no other mechanism built-in to do what you want.

  • another side effect is that all your applications using the camera don't work anymore – PEC Feb 25 '15 at 15:56

There is no native solution for what you want. But to answer your problem of automatically sharing pictures to icloud, you can disable the feature of sharing automatically.

Settings -> icloud -> photos -> turn off photo sharing

This may not be a complete solution, but can reduce the risk of sharing everything. Hope it helps.

You can just disable access to any functions from the lock screen by going to "Settings" > "Control Center" and then turn off access from lock screen.

    This only controls the presence or absence of the Control Center on the lock screen, and does not answer the OPs question. – IconDaemon May 7 '15 at 14:56

Sorry, but the answer is no. There is no native solution to this. You can always turn off the camera settings though
