    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Any users who have an iOS hybrid (pure cordova and           *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If a user has not given the application access to the        *
    * camera, the user will not receive an indication of that. If  *
    * they bring up the camera within the application, it just     *
    * shows up as a black screen.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * -                                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • A check has been added to see if the application has been given
    access to the camera. If not, the user will see a popup letting
    them know that they need to change the settings for the
    application. The popup also includes a button to go directly to
    the settings page where they need to change the camera access
    setting.
