The long-awaited iPhone 14 Pro finally went on sale on Friday, with fans around the world eagerly lining up outside Apple Stores to be among the first to get their hands on the new device.

But some early adopters are already reporting a bizarre issue — the rear camera’s main lens physically shakes and rattles when taking photos or videos in some third-party apps, including Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram.

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

The issue does not appear to affect the iPhone’s built-in camera app.

A handful of videos showing the problem have been shared to social media, including this one from TikTok user Damian Munoz

HOW MUCH IS THE IPHONE 14 SERIES?

iPhone 14 – £849

iPhone 14 Plus – £949

iPhone 14 Pro – £1,099

iPhone 14 Pro Max – £1,199

“So I’ve been experiencing my camera shaking uncontrollably every time I open Snapchat or use the camera for Instagram,” wrote one Reddit user. ‘However, I don’t run into any problems when using the regular camera app.’

Someone else wrote: ‘Picked up my new iPhone 14 pro yesterday and occasionally get ois camera shake (by shake I mean I can see and hear it shake) in Snapchat, anyone else experiencing this?’

“My iPhone 14 Pro just arrived and when I opened Snapchat the camera was shaking a lot and making a rather strange mechanical noise,” wrote another.

A handful of videos showing the problem have been shared to social media, including this one from YouTuber Luke Miani and another by TikTok user Damian Munoz.

The videos show the user opening 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 of the device vibrates uncontrollably and makes a rattling sound.

Miani said the incident resulted in the lens on his iPhone being unable to focus properly on subsequent use, 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 has yet to comment on the issue, 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 problem, Apple could potentially implement a fix in its iOS 16.1 update.

One user said that restarting the phone and then opening the default camera app before opening Snapchat temporarily fixed the problem.

However, if iPhone 14 Pro owners are concerned about potential damage to the rear camera system, they should avoid opening the camera in apps like Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram until the matter 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, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The new models boast a number of flashy features including improved camera technology, ‘Always On’ display and satellite connectivity (currently only available in the US).

The standard model retails for £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 £1,199.

The Pro models are more expensive, largely because they have more advanced cameras and a sophisticated pill-shaped notch at the top of the screen, called the ‘Dynamic Island’.

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

They support satellite connectivity that allows 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 record G-force measurements when vehicles are hit.

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

The iPhone 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen (same as the standard model) and costs £1,099, while the Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen (same as the Plus) and costs £1,199.

They have more advanced cameras than the standard and Plus models and a sophisticated pill-shaped notch at the top of the screen, called the ‘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, according to Apple.

They also feature satellite connectivity and car crash detection technology and will be available in deep purple, silver, gold and space black colours.

The £419 ($399) Apple Watch Series 8 has an Always-On display – meaning the screen displays a small amount of quickly readable information when idle.

It also has a strong crack-resistant front crystal, a temperature sensor that provides estimates of when a female wearer is ovulating and the same collision detection technology as the iPhone 14.

The battery in the Series 8 can also go longer – up to 36 hours from a single charge – than the SE 2 thanks to a low power mode.

The Apple Watch SE 2 delivers some of the Series 8’s advanced features, including crash detection, at a lower price (starting at £259 or $249).

It has the ovulation function, but it is less extensive than on the Series 8.
