    I have these permission but i still seem to be getting an error " camera permission(s) are required."

    Don't get the Permission dialog just an error ... What am I missing??

    In my case it is asking permission when i click on gallery icon but if i click on "Don't Allow",even it's accessing photos

    In your case you should ask for permission before entering Gallary page.

    This is the way to do it, also don't ask for all your permissions up front when you start that app, ask for then as you need them.

    my code is like this in xamarin forms ios project
    if (!CrossMedia.Current.IsPickPhotoSupported)
    await DisplayAlert(TaskyeConstants.PHOTOSNOTSUPPORTED, TaskyeConstants.NOPERMISSION, TaskyeConstants.OK);

                var file = await Plugin.Media.CrossMedia.Current.PickPhotoAsync(new Plugin.Media.Abstractions.PickMediaOptions
                    PhotoSize = Plugin.Media.Abstractions.PhotoSize.Small,
                    CompressionQuality = 50,
                    RotateImage = true,
                    MaxWidthHeight = 50,
                if (file == null)

    i am giving permissions in Info.plist(these two permissions for gallery NSPhotoLibraryAddUsageDescription,NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription
    and for camera i am giving NSCameraUsageDescription
