£1700 iPhone 14 Pro Max has mystery ‘grinding’ bug that ruins camera photos

Apple is set to release an update for its top-end iPhone 14 models next week after user reports emerged of a major camera bug.

According to iPhone users, the latest Pro and Pro Max models (which can cost up to £1700) have a significant camera bug whereby the camera can grind, rattle or shake when a third-party app is opened.

This means iPhone fans have been unable to use their expensive cameras on apps like TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat, despite the camera being one of the key selling points for the premium iPhone models.

Apple is now set to release an urgent update to fix the problem, but in the meantime, iPhone 14 Pro users are being urged to not use any apps which trigger the rattling as this could lead to permanent damage.

The issue is reportedly linked to the iPhone Pro's camera stabilisation system, and was first identified over the weekend by users of the iPhone subreddit.

One user said: "So I've been experiencing my camera shaking 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."

Another wrote: "Hope it hasn't permanently ruined image quality otherwise I'll demand a replacement. Not having a brand new £1200 phone 'repaired'."

Apple has been approached for the Daily Star for comment on the issue and forthcoming update, and this article will be refreshed as soon as this is received.

However, according to Bloomberg and The Verge, the company is "aware of the issue and a fix will be released next week".

The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are the premium editions of the latest iPhone 14. They promise premium camera features as well as a new 'Dynamic Island' feature at the top of the screen that houses notifications and more.

The iPhone 14 Pro starts at £999 while the iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at £1099, both of which increase in price depending on how much storage you want.
