Following complaints from a number of consumers who recently purchased an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max that the rear-facing cameras on their devices vibrated “uncontrollably” and made odd noises when using social networking apps, Apple announced it is developing a software upgrade.
In videos and blog entries they published on social networking websites, some customers said the issue only occurred while using the camera with third-party applications like Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram. A user submitted a video to YouTube that showed the phone shaking while using TikTok. Other Reddit users discussed issues that were comparable to mine. One customer remarked, “My camera shakes violently every time I open Snapchat or use the camera for Instagram.” I don’t experience any issues when utilising the built-in camera app, though.
In a statement to CNN on Tuesday, Apple (AAPL) said it is actively looking for a solution. We are aware of the problem, and a patch will be released the following week, according to a corporate spokesman.
Since releasing a number of new iPhone models earlier this month, it’s Apple’s first setback. The Pro models, which incorporate the first 48 MP camera and a few other cutting-edge features, start at $999, so it’s expected that they’ll be in particularly great demand this year.
According to recent tweets from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, due to the overwhelming demand for the iPhone 14 Pro models, the company altered the production lines for its standard iPhone 14 portfolio in order to make more of the higher-end devices. The wait periods for the iPhone 14 Pro variations seem to be longer compared to the rest of the iPhone 14 series.
There have been a number of software updates since the company’s newest mobile operating system, iOS 16, was unveiled last Monday, including Apple’s fix. Then, Apple released iOS 16.0.1 to fix issues with newly purchased iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro devices as well as a bug with the zoom feature of the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
