iOS 10: How To Prevent Music Playback From Being Paused In Camera App

The iPhone is great at so many things, and playing music is one of them that is often overlooked. With a mind-boggling number of apps available that do everything from starting your car to helping teach languages, playing music is arguable the first real app-based capability that the iPhone had to offer when it was launched ten years ago.

Since then, the iPhone’s ability to kick out tunes has increased considerably, with streaming services and improvements in audio quality amongst the reasons for that, though we would argue the loss of the headphone jack is a rare blot on the smartphone’s copybook. With music so integral to the iPhone, it is always so jarring when that music stops just because you wanted to take a photo.

Launching the Camera app has always prevented any music from being played at the same time, which has long been an irritation for many of us. As is always the case though, there is one simple way to stop that annoyance from creeping up on you, although it is only simple of you are already jailbroken.

Dndmymusic is a simple, free jailbreak tweak that simply prevents the Camera app from pausing your music when it is launched – no settings to tweak here.

Music lovers can download the tweak from the BigBoss repository, via Cydia, and once they do that, they will be able to take photos and video without a care in the world.

This tweak works with both the front and rear-facing cameras, and has no problem even when slow-motion video is being recorded. If you want to do something with the Camera app but still have your tunes on, then this tweak is right up your alley.

Download Dndmymusic and give it a try. The tweak has only been tested with iOS 10 as of this writing.
