Apple has released a fix for iPhone 14 Pro camera shake glitch and copy-paste issues

0

Apple has released an iOS 16 software update that fixes the camera shake reported by some users of the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Affected users claimed that the rear camera’s main lens physically vibrated and rattled when taking photos or videos in third-party apps, including Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram.

While the cause is still unclear, the iOS 16.0.2 update claims to fix the issue and a number of other bugs that have come to light since iOS 16 was released two weeks ago.

This includes a persistent popup that appears when an app tries to paste text or images from another app, asking for user permission.

The rapid release of iOS 16.0.2 will come as a relief to those who have paid between £849 and £1,199 in the past week for one of the latest iPhone 14 handsets.

The update should be made available automatically to anyone with an Apple device running iOS 16 and installed through the Settings app.

On Monday, noted tech reporter Mark Gurman said: Bloomberg that Apple was working on the fix and that it would be released sometime next week, but it’s earlier than expected.

The camera shake issue didn’t seem to affect the iPhone’s built-in Camera app, but many concerned users took to Reddit and Twitter to describe their experiences.

“So I’ve experienced my camera shaking uncontrollably when I open Snapchat or use the camera for Instagram,” one person wrote reddit user.

“But when I use the regular camera app, I have no problem with that.”

Another wrote: “I picked up my new iPhone 14 pro yesterday and get occasional camera shake (by shake I mean I can see and hear it shake) in Snapchat, does anyone else have experience with this?”

“My iPhone 14 Pro just arrived and when I opened Snapchat the camera was shaking a lot and making a pretty strange mechanical noise,” wrote another.

A handful of videos showing the issue have been shared on social media, including: this one from YouTuber Luke Miani and another by TikTok user Damian Munoz.

The videos showed the user accessing the camera function in a third-party app on the iPhone 14 Pro and seeing a blurry image on the screen, while the main lens on the device was shaking uncontrollably and making a rattling noise.

Miani said the incident caused the lens on his iPhone to fail to focus properly when used later, even in the iPhone’s default Camera app. He took the device to an Apple Store and was able to exchange it for a new one.

Some users have suggested that this could be due to a software bug affecting the optical image stabilization of the device.

In addition to the camera issue, the update fixes bugs that led to repeated copy-paste popups and the screen that appeared black during installation

The popups have been added as a privacy feature, as apps now have to ask for permission before accessing the clipboard, which may contain sensitive data.  However, it has annoyed users as it allegedly appeared when they tried to paste something into an app

Apple senior manager Ron Huang previously admitted that MacRumors that his persistence was “absolutely unexpected behavior.”

It also fixes an issue that caused some iPhone X, iPhone XR, and ‌iPhone‌ 11 models with serviced or replaced displays to become unresponsive after installing iOS 16‌.

The patch notes for the update read: “This update provides bug fixes and important security updates for your iPhone, including:

  • ‘Camera may shake and cause blurry photos when shooting with third-party apps on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • ‘Display may appear completely black during device setup
  • Copying and pasting between apps may cause a permission prompt to appear more than expected
  • ‘VoiceOver may not be available after reboot
  • “Fixes an issue where touch input was unresponsive on some iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11 screens after maintenance”

Apple is currently testing iOS 16.1 with developers and public beta testers, which will introduce Clean Energy Charging among other things.

This optimizes iPhone charging times for when the power grid uses cleaner energy sources, and is intended to reduce the device’s environmental footprint.

It will initially only be available to users in the US, but may be rolled out elsewhere at a later date.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced four variants of the iPhone 14 at the company’s “Far Out” launch event on September 7.

These were the standard iPhone 14 model, the iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The new models boast a host of flashy features, including enhanced camera technology, ‘Always On’ display and satellite connectivity (currently only available in the US).

The standard model costs £849 and comes with a 6.1-inch screen, while the Plus costs £949 and has a 6.7-inch screen.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen and costs £1,099, while the Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen and costs a whopping £1,199.

The pro models are more expensive, mainly because they have more advanced cameras and an advanced pill-shaped notch at the top of the screen called ‘Dynamic Island’.

The £419 ($399) Apple Watch Series 8 has an Always-On display – meaning the screen displays a small amount of quick eye-catching information when idle.

It also has a strong tear-resistant crystal on the front, a temperature sensor that provides estimates of when a female wearer is ovulating, and the same crash-detection technology as the iPhone 14.

The Series 8’s battery also lasts longer – up to 36 hours on a single charge – than that of the SE 2, thanks to a power-saving mode.
