Apple will fix iPhone 14 Pro camera shake via software update

Three iPhone 14s started shipping on Friday. Millions of users have gotten their hands on the standard iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Some of the people who bought an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max quickly discovered a camera shake issue when using specific social media apps. This phenomenon resulted in disturbing buzzes emanating from the iPhone 14 Pro’s 48-megapixel wide camera.

Apple has acknowledged the issue, saying it will fix the camera shake bug via a software update next week.

We speculated earlier this week that Apple would fix the issue via a software update. The obvious temporary solution is to avoid taking photos or videos in Snapchat, Instagram, TikTok, and other social apps. This is the only way to avoid any camera buzzing issue similar to what some iPhone 14 Pro users have experienced.

“We are aware of the issue and a fix will be released next week,” an Apple spokesperson said. Told MacRumors.

When asked if customers who experience the camera buzzing issue on their iPhone 14 Pro models should bring the phone in for repair, Apple said the software update will fix the problem. This implies that a hardware patch is not required.

After experiencing the camera shake behavior, some have speculated that the camera might suffer real damage. The phone reportedly failed to focus in the default Camera app after experiencing buzzing/shaking behavior. This is anecdotal evidence, however.

Apple had had time to understand the cause of the problem on the iPhone 14 Pro models. And a software glitch is likely responsible for the rapid camera movements that caused the shake and buzz.

That said, if the camera experiences similar issues after the update patch, you can still take the phone to Apple for further repairs. Time will tell just how vast the case is. What if iPhone 14 Pro will need camera shake repair programs. But that’s just speculation at this point, and we’re getting ahead of ourselves.

However, people who have encountered the camera buzzing bug and are concerned about the integrity of the camera can substitute the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max. You’re still within the handset return window, given that the handset only started shipping on Friday.
