Apple killed the Camera Roll to the horror of many iPhotogs with the  release of iOS 8.1, but the first iOS 8.1 beta shows the company has had a change of heart is open to bringing it back, but not for everyone.

iOS 8.1 beta 1 allows users to resurrect the classic Camera Roll album after it was replaced by the Recently Added photo, but you actually have to turn off Apple’s new iCloud Photo Library service to activate it.

If you want to get Camera Roll back and don’t mind sticking with physical storage, here’s how to turn it on:

Most iOS 8 users have probably switched to the iCloud Photo Library by default when you upgrading to iOS 8. To turn it off go to Settings >> Photo & Camera >> iCloud Photo Library (Beta) switch to off.
