iPhone 14 Pro users report camera shaking issue in third-party apps

Some early adopters of the new iPhone 14 Pro are reported to be having major issues with the device’s camera.

Users have taken to social media with videos showing the camera module audibly and noticeably vibrating and rattling, and in some cases, the image on the display shakes almost comically.

The issue only appears when users launch third-party camera apps such as TikTok and Instagram, which suggests that a software issue may be the root cause. It doesn’t look like anyone is experiencing a problem with the stock Camera app.

While there is currently no official explanation for the rather remarkable flaw, it appears that the optical image stabilization (OIS) engine has failed.

However, the 9to5Mac report suggests that the problem may not be from Apple, but rather the social media apps themselves, which may not have been modified to accommodate changes to the iPhone’s camera hardware. That said, it’s not the best look for Apple’s most expensive new iPhone, and it’s not clear if this flaw could cause permanent damage to camera hardware.

Reddit users (by using 9to5Mac) also weighs in with one post: “So, my camera shakes uncontrollably whenever I open Snapchat or use the camera for Instagram. However, I don’t run into any issues when I use the regular camera app.”

The iPhone 14 Pro was released on Friday and is the first iPhone model to replace the Dynamic Island notch in the iPhone display.”

We have reached out to Apple for an update on what advice the company is offering to users affected by this issue, if any. Instead of anything official right now, we would probably avoid using the apps that are causing the problem to minimize the risk of permanent damage to the camera module. While it’s not ideal when you’ve just bought a new phone, it’s probably reasonable for now.
