Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have gotten stellar reviews across the board with many praising the new rear camera systems on offer. Unfortunately, many iPhone 14 Pro users are now reporting camera shaking/rattling issues that are plaguing their phones when using third-party apps.

Out of the four iPhone 14 models that Apple launched this month, the iPhone 14 Pro and the 14 Pro Max pack the most changes compared to their predecessors. For instance, in addition to the ingenious Dynamic Island, both Pro phones come with much improved 48 MP main camera units alongside ultrawide and telephoto shooters. As it turns out, some third-party apps don’t play well with the new cameras.

According to some iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max users, the camera unit visibly shakes/rattles in third-party apps like Snapchat and TikTok making it practically impossible to take sharp photos. Additionally, many users are also reporting hearing mechanical noises coming from the camera housing. Videos of the camera issue have been shared on Twitter and YouTube where one can see the rear shooter shake during use in third-party apps.

Interestingly, the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear shooter problems aren’t affecting the official Apple camera app and are only apparent in third-party apps like Instagram. Based on this, it is quite likely that the rattling of the camera units is a software bug that could be fixed with an update.

So far, Apple or the affected third-party apps have yet to offer a fix for the problem.
