But some early adopters are already reporting a bizarre problem: The rear camera’s main lens vibrates and rattles when taking photos or videos in third-party apps, including Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram.

It is unclear how widespread the problem is and what the underlying cause is. However, several concerned iPhone 14 Pro users have taken to Reddit and Twitter to describe their experiences and share videos demonstrating the problem.

The issue doesn’t seem to affect the iPhone’s built-in Camera app.

The videos show the user accessing the camera function in a third-party app on the iPhone 14 Pro and seeing a blurry image on the screen as the main lens on the device vibrates uncontrollably and makes a rattling sound

A handful of videos showing the issue have been shared on social media, including this one by TikTok user Damian Munoz.

“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 show the user accessing the camera function in a third-party app on the iPhone 14 Pro and seeing a blurry image on the screen as the main lens on the device vibrates uncontrollably and makes a rattling sound.

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.

Apple hasn’t commented on the issue yet, but some users have suggested that it could be due to a software bug affecting the device’s optical image stabilization.

If this is the issue, Apple may be able to implement a fix in the iOS 16.1 update.

One user said the problem was temporarily resolved by restarting the phone and then opening the default Camera app before opening Snapchat.

However, if iPhone 14 Pro owners are concerned about possible damage to the rear camera system, they should avoid opening the camera in apps like Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram until the issue is resolved.

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

They support satellite connections that allow users to send satellite SOS messages if they are caught in an emergency without service.

They also have technology that can detect when users are in a car accident and automatically call emergency services, thanks to a dual-core accelerometer that can detect G-force readings when vehicles are hit.

They will be available in midnight, starlight, blue, purple and red colors.

They have more advanced cameras than the standard and Plus models, and a refined pill-shaped notch at the top of the screen called ‘Dynamic Island’.

Dynamic Island hides the front-facing camera, but also resizes to show important alerts, notifications and activities, blurring the line between hardware and software, Apple said.

They also have satellite connectivity and car accident detection technology, and are available in deep purple, silver, gold and space black.

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.
