Controlling and keeping an eye on Privacy access to the apps is a must, besides, in previous iOS versions, it was difficult to track the apps and permissions that you’ve granted. Concerning the most important function, which is a camera, we have prepared this article, to fix the Allow Access to Camera Not Found on iPhone Apps. Unless you give access to use Camera, it is fairly impossible to use the camera on an app. Looking at this scenario, I’ll show you how to bring back the camera access option and start using the camera.

At first, you should check into the settings and verify if Allow Access to Camera is really gone? There are two ways to manage the camera permissions on iPhone. So go through it. If it didn’t work, then try the below troubleshooting to fix.

Allow Access to Camera setting Missing on iPhone

Manage Camera Permissions

Usually, when we download any app, which needs Camera Access, a pop-up will ask you to Allow Camera Access when you open the app for the first time. However, if you Dont Allow it, then that prompt will never appear; so you’ll have to manually manage the camera permission for that app.

iOS lets you manage Camera Permissions in two ways, go through both of them and check if Camera Access Not found on iPhone is fixed or not.

Option 1: From the App Itself

You can easily manage all the permissions including Camera, Microphone, etc. by opening the apps one by one. This feature comes in handy when you don’t want to let the app use microphone or camera.

  1. Open the Settings.
  2. Scroll down to the App which is causing Camera Access error, tap to open it.
  3. Look for the Camera option and if it appears then Toggle it ON.

Option 2: From the iPhone Privacy Settings

Here are the alternative options where you can access and control the permissions.

  1. Go to the Settings.
  2. Search and tap Privacy.
  3. Tap Camera.
  4. Turn on Camera Access for the app.

This is how Camera Permissions on iPhone can be managed. Still, Allow Access to Camera not found on the iPhone, then check out basic solutions to fix the problem.

Solution 1: Force Restart iPhone

First things first, without thinking twice I’d suggest you force restart the iPhone. Besides, some of you may have already done that, if not then force restart and then only move onto the next suggestion. Restarting the phone will close the background process of your iPhone and of course of all the apps. So here’s how it can be done,

For iPhone 8 or Later:

  • Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
  • Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
  • Press and hold the Side button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

For iPhone 7/7Plus:

  • Press and hold the Volume Down button and Power button until Apple logo displays on the black screen.

For iPhone 6S/6SPlus or Earlier:

  • Press and hold the Home button and Sleep/Wake button and release only when the Apple logo appears.

Solution 2: Reinstall App

Taking a hard step, you have to delete and reinstall the application on which Allow Access to the Camera not working on iPhone. Without camera permission, iPhone won’t ever let you use the camera on that particular app. I’m including this troubleshooting trick, as some of the users already, fixed the camera access issues on the iPhone.

With iOS 13, Apple introduced alternative ways to delete apps. Here you go.

Way 1 (Can only be used with iOS 13 or later): Touch and hold the app icon that you want to delete, then select Edit Home Screen and tap on the (x) to delete the app.

Way 2 (For All iOS’s Version): Long press the app icon until the apps start jiggling and delete it.
