Some iPhone 14 Pro users are saying that their camera is “shaking, rattling, and even making physical noises” when it is used in a third-party app like Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok.

Apple unveiled the new iPhone 14 series earlier this month and the devices went on sale last Friday. Now that the users are getting a hang of their new iPhone 14 Pro, issues with the camera system have surfaced. Some users have claimed that their camera is “shaking, rattling, and even making physical noises” when it is used in a third-party app like Snapchat, Instagram and TikTok.

Users have taken to Reddit and Twitter to share their concerns and see if they are the only ones with a faulty device but as it turns out, these apps were just not quite ready for Apple’s latest technology.
One user wrote on Reddit, “So I’ve been experiencing my camera shaking uncontrollably whenever I open Snapchat or use the camera for Instagram. However, I don’t run into any issues when I use the regular camera app.”
A video shared by Apple YouTuber Luke Miani on Twitter showed how his iPhone 14 Pro Max started vibrating and making buzzing noises when he opened Snapchat on the phone.
Another video on YouTube showcased a similar problem with the shaking and the type of noise that should only come from a grinder.
Either way, anyone who is spending over $1,000 (and more in India) on a smartphone does not expect a bug like this. Who knows what kind of damage it does to the camera module itself?
The camera seems to be working perfectly fine on the main camera app and only malfunctions when it is opened on a third-party app. What the actual issue could be is still unclear. Is this a hardware problem or can Apple fix it with a minor update? And is it a problem that most devices are facing? Only time will tell.
