Apple to Fix iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max Camera Shake Issue Within Next Week; details here – Tech News, Firstpost

The tech giant Apple has announced that it is preparing a software update for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max that would fix a bug that causes the device’s rear camera to shake when using certain third-party applications.

The iPhone maker told Bloomberg that a solution for the camera shake problem on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max devices will be made available by the end of next week. This will ease customer concerns that the dramatic camera shake issues on their new phones may have been caused by a hardware defect. Conversely, when the new software update is available, users can simply install it.
Many models of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have encountered the problem of camera shake, especially when using third-party apps like Snapchat and TikTok. Interestingly, the Apple Camera app continues to function normally. According to Bloomberg, the optical image stabilization hardware may have occasionally encountered issues with third-party apps, causing it to malfunction.

Due to the problem, the OIS or focus systems of the iPhones become erratic and vibrate unpredictably. It renders the video taken with the smartphone camera useless and can even cause damage to the hardware of the device. Users reported that they also heard screeching or buzzing from their device. However, it appears that the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus models are not affected by this problem. Some iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max owners have expressed their frustration with the camera issue on social media platforms.

One of the biggest improvements for this year’s iPhone is the iPhone 14 Pro’s new camera system, which for the first time uses a 48-megapixel sensor for the main lens. The phone also has a software feature called “Dynamic Island” at the top of the device that works with an improved camera cutout to display essential data like navigation directions or AirPods status.

The next software update (iOS 16.0.2) for the iPhone 14 series will be the second so far. Users were advised to upgrade to iOS 16.0.1 on launch day to fix a “FaceTime” activation issue.
