iPhone 14 Pro Camera Shakes and Vibrates in Apps Like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram for Some Users

After the launch of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, some early users of the device have noticed that the main rear camera lens is shaking uncontrollably in third-party apps with camera functionality, such as Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram, resulting in shaky videos. This issue doesn’t seem to affect the built-in Camera app.


This issue has been reported by users across the board Twitter, Reddit, TikTok, and the MacRumors Forum since the iPhone 14 Pro models launched on Friday, but it’s unclear how widespread the problem is or what the underlying cause is. The primary lens on the iPhone 14 Pro models features “second-generation” sensor-shift optical image stabilization, and it’s possible that the stabilizer is working due to a software bug, but this is just speculation.

YouTuber Luke Miani said he was having problems with one of the iPhone 14 Pro Max units he tested. Miani shared a video of the problem showing the main lens on the device vibrating uncontrollably, and she said the incident resulted in the lens not being able to focus properly in subsequent uses, even in the Camera app. Miani said she took the iPhone to the Apple Store and was able to exchange the device for a new one.

If the problem is caused by a software bug, Apple may apply a fix in iOS 16.1 beta. We’ve contacted Apple to ask if Apple is aware of and/or investigating the matter, but the company has not responded to our request for comment.

Until this issue is resolved, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max owners should avoid opening the camera in apps like Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram if they are concerned about potential damage to the rear camera system. We will share any additional information about this matter, including any feedback from Apple, as it becomes available.
