Several iPhone 14 Pro owners report that the camera on their device starts shaking uncontrollably in third-party apps. The issue occurs in popular apps like TikTok, Snapchat, Instagram, and others.

The shaking only occurs when using the built-in camera of these apps. Some strange mechanical noises from inside the phone accompany the shaking.

iPhone 14 Pro’s primary camera shakes uncontrollably in third-party apps

Due to uncontrollable shaking, the primary camera on the new iPhones cannot focus on subjects. The stock Camera app on the new iPhones does not exhibit this issue. It is only limited to selected third-party apps.

The problem is not affecting all iPhone 14 Pro owners but a sizeable number of them. It is currently unclear if this is a hardware or software issue. If it is the latter, Apple could roll out a minor iOS update to fix this and other bugs reported by iPhone 14 Pro users.



Apple says the iPhone 14 Pro lineup has second-generation sensor-shift OIS, which could be the reason behind this incessant camera shaking.

You can use the stock Camera app on the iPhone to take photos or videos and then share them on Instagram, Snapchat, or other apps. This way, you can avoid the uncontrollable camera shake and still share media content in third-party apps.

Some iPhone 14 Pro users took their unit to the nearest Apple Store and received a replacement unit. You can try your luck, but if this is a software issue, you could run into it again.

iPhone 14 Pro series uses a bigger 48MP camera sensor

Apple is using a bigger new 48MP camera sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Shots are captured in 48MP and then downsampled to 12MP for more details.

Apple also lets you shoot 48MP RAW/DNG photos if you want to capture more details. But such images will easily eat up device storage as they are around 50-100MB in size.
