iPhone 14 Pro cameras facing issues on third-party apps

iPhone 14 Pro users are reporting issues when accessing the camera rig on third-party applications.

According to early adopters, the rear camera’s primary lens vibrates uncontrollably in third-party apps with camera functionality such as TikTok and Instagram, resulting in shaky video footage on the device.

The issue does not seem to affect the Camera app on the iPhone and thus is likely to be a software bug.

Users have been taking to websites like Reddit and Twitter to report the issue, but right now, we don’t know for certain whether it’s just some iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models that are impacted by the update.

Apple added a new second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization feature to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models, and it’s likely that there’s a software bug with the stabilizer that could be quickly fixed with an iOS update from Apple.

According to some users, the main lens on the device will vibrate uncontrollably in some third-party apps, and following this, it stops focusing properly even in the Camera app. YouTuber Luke Miani uploaded a video to share the news, and then revealed he took his device back to an Apple Store for a replacement unit.
