A Scientific American article shows how you can add a drop of water on the lens of the iPhone camera and create a magnifying lens / microscope.

Just place a drop of water on the lens and turn the phone over.  The suspended drop will act like a magnifying glass.  The larger droplet will lead to higher magnification and the liquid will be highly sensitive to vibrations.  It will be hard to hold the phone stead with your hands to take a picture.
