Take a photo with a locked screen
To take a photo with a locked screen, you used to have to unlock the screen first, and chance losing your shot. Apple's iOS 5 provides a workaround through the auspices of a screen control and the volume rocker. A camera icon shows up directly to the right of the unlock slider, which will snap open the camera app, even if you have a passcode. Pressing the volume "up" will trigger the camera shutter button. The crowd goes wild.
Photo editing is also on board now. One-click enhancing and iPhoto are coming to the photos app, and so is speedy color correction. Editing options include cropping and rotating, and red-eye reduction. The app itself includes grid lines, pinch to zoom, and changing the exposure by pressing and holding the screen.
