All is not well for excited new users of Apple’s latest 14 Pro models due to problems with the camera and the popping up of a grinding noise while using third-party apps.
According to numerous reports, those who just purchased a new iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max have been facing uncontrollable lens movement, with some users posting on the internet that their camera shakes and even makes an awful grinding noise when opening the camera on a third-party app, like Instagram, Snapchat, or TikTok.

Popular Apple YouTuber Luke Miani posted a video to Twitter showing how his iPhone 14 Pro Max camera vibrates when using Snapchat, making the photo completely blurry. You can also clearly hear a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the lens in the video, and that is a major buzzkill for prospective buyers.
Luckily, the issue does not affect the iPhone’s Camera app, and is clearly limited to the third-party app software rather than Apple’s hardware. To mitigate this error, Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok may need to push an update specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro.
But even if that happens, there’s no knowing what it does to the camera itself, which is concerning especially due to the fact that the device costs about $1,000 and up.
