On the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, a bug has been reported in which the rear camera vibrates when using some third-party camera apps. Apple has announced that it will deliver a software update to fix this bug by the next week, i.e., by the end of September.
It has been reported that when you open a third-party app such as Instagram, TikTok, or Snapchat on your iPhone 14 Pro and launch the camera within the app, the device camera will vibrate and you will not be able to take photos or videos properly due to the blur and shake. This bug does not occur in Apple’s default camera app but only in third-party camera apps.
Apple told Verge in an email, “We are aware of the issue and a fix will be released next week.” According to Bloomberg, this is due to a firmware fault with the iPhone 14’s optical image stabilisation (OIS). 9to5Mac recommended refraining from using third-party camera apps since the shake can affect the camera hardware.
The iOS 16, released on September 15th, is the second camera-related update after its launch. The first software update addresses an issue where iMessage and FaceTime activation problems. Another issue was the iPhone 14 Pro Max’s lack of display sharpness in landscape orientation. The iOS 16.0.1 was delivered to fix the problem.
Apple hasn’t provided any further details, but since iOS 16.0.1 has already been released, the software update that addresses the camera shake bug will likely be delivered as “iOS 16.0.2.”
