New Camera gesture on the lock screen in iOS 5.1

If you’ve updated your iPhone to iOS 5.1, you may have noticed a little camera icon next to your unlock slider. Previously, Apple allowed users to access their Camera app quickly by double-tapping the home button and pressing the Camera button. Now, as the video demonstrates, all you have to do is swipe up.

Bonus tip: after you’re done using the Camera via the lock screen, you can swipe down from the top to re-lock your phone.
