>                 Key: CB-7667
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Plugin Camera, Plugin Media Capture
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.0
>         Environment: iOS 8
>            Reporter: Dan Polivy
>            Priority: Minor
> In iOS 8, it's possible for the camera to be disabled for any given app; in iOS 7, this
was only possible in certain regions (e.g. China).
> If the camera is disabled, and someone launches the Camera plugin to capture an image
from the camera, they'll just get the camera UI with a black screen, and no indication that
the camera permission is disabled for the app. A better UX would be to show the user a prompt
indicating that the camera permission is disabled, and (on iOS 8) providing a button to take
them to the Settings app to change it.
> As of iOS 7, there's a new API to test whether the app has access to capture the desired
media type:
> [AVCaptureDevice authorizationStatusForMediaType:mediaType];
