Posts on social media, including Reddit claim there to be a lot of jitters, believed to be a shaking of the optical image stabilization (OIS) system.
In the case of the iPhone 14 Pro, the 48MP Main camera has Apple’s second-generation Sensor-Shift OIS, which physically moves the sensor, while the other uses an older and more conventional OIS system.
A few users have claimed that they could see and hear the shaking and mechanical movement when they used the third-party app’s camera features.
In one video demonstrating the issue, the iPhone was slightly moving and generating a grinding noise.
It is unknown how many iPhones could be affected by the issue. AppleInsider tried, and failed, to reproduce the bug independently, the report said.
The new iPhone 14 Pro comes with several new changes in the camera setup, when compared to the iPhone 13 Pro series. The new series includes a 48MP sensor and an Action Mode to generate smooth video.
In terms of hardware, this is one of the biggest camera updates in any iPhone since the launch of the very first smartphone from Apple. The higher pixel count can provide better zooming options.
