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.
