How to Fix iPhone 14 Pro Camera Autofocus Issue?

Facing Problem with Autofocus on iPhone 14 Pro Camera. Here is the Simple Guide to Fix iPhone 14 Pro Camera Autofocus Issues.

Previously the 14 pro variant users are facing a new serious issue while using the camera. It is said that the iPhone makes a kind of mechanical noise when the camera shakes or rattles while using it. Apple has tried to fix this issue by releasing a new update version, iOS 16.0.2, but it didn’t help much. Once the number of these complaints decreased after the new update, recently, the 14 pro variant users have been hit by another irritating issue on the camera.

The issue describes that many users are having a bad experience with autofocus mode while clicking a photo. iPhone 14 Pro camera autofocus issue arises with close to things or at a regular distance. However, the standard variants of the iPhone 14 series look immune to this bug. Only a small number of users of the standard version had complained about the autofocus issue.

Overview: iPhone 14 Pro Camera Autofocus Issue

This issue mainly hit the 14 Pro users. The users are unable to capture a relatively close object. The camera performs quite poorly at that time and occasionally flickers and slows while focusing. This issue remained when the users switched to third-party apps to capture close-range photos.

Besides this, the issue also appears when the user tried to record a video that is accompanied by a humming sound. One step ahead, some users have complained that the camera behaved so badly that they weren’t able to make an online payment when needed as the camera refused to focus on the QR code. Note that the 13 Pro variant in the iPhone 13 series also had the same issue at the time of its launch.

    I had trouble with the focus of my new iPhone 14 Pro Max from day one. This ruined many of my videos and photos. My previous phone, iPhone 12 Pro, did not have any issues. Shame on Apple for selling us a defective camera system as an “upgrade” to older phones that worked much better.

    Have 14 Pro that will swing in and out of focus continuously so that you can not make a photo. Have tried various ways to stop. The only thing that stops it for a while is to power off the phone and then power it back on after which it works correctly –for a while. This is on a phone I have had about three months but this issue just began. Once it starts it will do this at all magnifications and lighting conditions and regardless of other settings on the camera.
