Camera issues with iPhone or iPad in iOS 10.3 can happen all the time. Users report that this error manifests after using the camera for quite a lot of time. Once the malfunction was signaled by the device, the camera will fail to work no matter how much you try to skip this unexpected error.
Some have tried to reboot their iPhone or iPad, without success. Others went on and reset the device to its factory settings. That one didn’t work either. So, if you’ve come this far looking for a way to fix the not working camera failed problem, it means you’ve probably tried these two options without success.
Today, we’re going to show you two other things that might easily solve this annoying problem of yours.
Solution #1 – restart the device
A simple restart can do a lot of things, yet it is surprising how users often overlook this solution. Go ahead and hit the Power button of your iPhone or iPad on iOS 10.3. Then, hit the Home button and hold these two together for up to 7 seconds or until you see that the device turns off. Use the power button to turn it back on and launch the camera app.
Solution #2 – clear the cache
If the restart still hasn’t fixed the camera issue, try to clear the cache partition. To do so, tap on the Settings icon and go to the General settings. Select Storage & iCloud Usage, then select the Manage Storage tab. Next, tap an item from the Documents and Data section. Pick the unwanted items and slide them to the left, tapping on the Delete option. If you want to remove all the app’s data, tap on Edit, Delete All and you’re done.
These two steps are often reported to work on solving the camera not working on iPhone and iPad in iOS 10.3 much easier than the reboot or the factory default settings. Try them for yourself and see how it goes. If, by the end of it, you still can’t use the Camera app, looks like you’ll have to contact the retailer and ask for a replacement.
