Apple announces camera fix

The camera is one of the main new features of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. But unfortunately, these are victims of a bug.

In a previous article, we relayed the reports of users on social networks, who noticed strange behavior of this camera when it is used by third-party applications, including certain social networks. In essence, as you will see in the video below, posted by a youtuber, the camera vibrates and makes clicking noises.

As several outlets have explained, this can happen when the camera is used by third-party apps, but not when opening Apple’s official camera app. And from this, we concluded that it was a problem at the software level, but not a manufacturing defect.

Apple reacts and promises a fix

The good news is that Apple has already acknowledged this problem on its new iPhones. And as the MacRumours site reports, a fix is ​​already in the works.

“We are aware of the issue and a fix will be released next week”said an Apple representative, quoted by the media.

The Cupertino company does not give details, but since these vibrations only occur when it is used by third-party apps, it is possible that these applications have not been prepared to support the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

According to Bloomberg, Snapchat, whose app is affected, also acknowledged the issue and said it is working with Apple to resolve it.

Among the new camera additions to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is the second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization system, which could be the source of the vibrations. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also the first iPhones to feature a 48-megapixel main sensor that improves low-light performance.

Another fix for iOS 16

In addition to this camera bug on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple also needs to address a bug that affects not just these two models, but all devices running iOS 16.

Many users who installed this update were annoyed by behavior of the operating system that systematically asks for permission, when the user copies content from one application to another. And according to the MacRumours site, Apple has already acknowledged that this is a bug and not a feature. A patch would therefore already be planned for this other problem.
