No
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 year ago

Please try this:

  1. Just press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons simultaneously for at least 20 seconds, until you see the Apple logo. You can let go of both buttons after the Apple logo appears.
  2. Your phone will go through the usual process of starting up.
  3. You'll be back in your home screen.

The message says IPhone is locked with a pass code, I enter the pass code and it does unlock the photo's. This started after i installed 10 on my phone.
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 year ago

Does it say your photos are locked?

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Photo's in the camera roll on IPhone cannot be viewed or imported because the IPhone is locked with a passcode. This is what it says.
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 year ago

Bear with me I am researching the issue.

Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 year ago

Go to the General settings and tap "Passcode Lock"
and make sure "Simple Passcode" is off. If it is, try turning it back on & changing your Passcode to something that you will remember, and then turn it off again. Something may be hanging.

Technician: Samuel White, Tech Expert replied 1 year ago

ou can not cancel or ignore any messages which pop up when you first plug in your iPhone and ask "Trust this computer?". The correct reply is "Yes", not "Cancel".

If you cancelled it you can force the issue by having iTunes open when you next plug in your iPhone. Tell the iPhone that it can trust the your computer. Your photos can download into iPhoto again.
