Is your iPhone 14 Pro’s main sensor messing up Instagram and TikTok? As promised, Apple has done the necessary. In any case, this is what we discover when reading the iOS 16.0.2 release notes. Available for installation for a few hours, this new minor update of iOS 16 corrects a problem observed with the sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro since their launch.

On some third-party applications, such as Instagram, TikTok or Snapchat, their main module was shaking and could also emit a disturbing clicking noise, or even squeaks. A strange problem that Apple therefore seems to have solved at a software level.

Apple reacted quickly, explaining that it was working on a fix that finally arrived just a week after the launch of the iPhone 14 Pro.
