iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users have been complaining about camera issues lately. In the latest development, some have claimed that the camera app on their handsets is taking a while to open. The issue builds on an earlier issue in which some early owners of the newly-launched smartphone claimed that their camera shakes and makes noises in third-party apps. Apple has introduced new camera hardware with a new 48-megapixel main sensor in the iPhone 14 Pro series of smartphones.
Macromers Report Multiple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users are reported to take four to five seconds to open the camera app after tapping the camera app icon. The problem appears when the app is running in the background. According to the report, the issue “does not appear after manually closing and reopening the camera app or restarting the software.”
Furthermore, users are facing this issue in photo mode and “doesn’t appear when the camera app is set to video mode.” Interestingly, the issue appears to be limited to the camera app and does not affect third-party camera apps, the report claims. The recently-released iOS 16.0.1 update does not appear to have fixed the issue. MacRommers says that restarting the iPhone or factory resetting the device may not provide a permanent solution.
In a recent development, users of iPhone 14 Pro models complained on Reddit that the rear camera setup on their new smartphones shakes violently and makes noise when used with third-party camera apps like Snapchat and Instagram. However, users did not face any problem with Apple’s native camera app. The company reportedly plans to fix the issue next week.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max come with a 48-megapixel main camera sensor with second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization — one of the key upgrades included in this year’s flagship series. These updates come with improved cinematic modes as well as new modes like Action Mode and Photonic Engine.
