iPhone 14 Pro camera shakes and makes strange grinding noise for some users

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have some issues in apps like Snapchat, Instagram, and TikTok. Users have reported that the camera starts shaking and makes a grinding noise when the camera is used in these apps.

The new iPhone 14 has only been released for a few days, but some users are already reporting an issue regarding the camera. In effect, the camera of several iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max shakes making a rather strange grinding noise. This issue seems to only occur in third-party apps that use the camera. Users who reported this issue encountered it on Snapchat, instagram and TikTok.

Several reports have already been shared on social networks, but none concern Apple’s Camera app. This would therefore indicate that it is not a hardware problem, but rather a software one. The problem would therefore not come from the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro itself. Besides, you need to update your iPhone 14 as soon as it starts to fix another camera issue.

iPhone 14 Pro users are experiencing the same issue using Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok

On Twitter, content creator Luke Miani shared a video of this issue using snapchat. As you can see, the camera of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which has more battery life than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, starts to vibrate uncontrollably. The tremor is even visible to the naked eye. In addition, we also hear a grinding noise. Another user, “@ChrisOcean24”, shared the same issue while also using Snapchat.

We don’t know yet if camera shake and noise could cause property damage. So it is recommended that users affected by this issue bring their iPhone to an Apple Store. For their part, Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok will probably prepare an update of their respective application.

Finally, neither Apple nor the social networks concerned have yet communicated on this problem. However, this should soon be corrected via a software update. While waiting for more official information, we can think that third-party applications were not prepared for the new features of the iPhone 14 Pro camera, which is barely more powerful than the iPhone 13 Pro. In particular, this could be optical image stabilizationwhich would cause that squeaking noise.
