In less than two weeks, Apple has likely sold millions of iPhones 14 devices, but the launch has not been easy. It has only been a few days since the introduction of the new Apple iPhone 14 and iOS 16, which was intended to be the software with the smoothest operation. However, 12 days after the release, the system and the handset suffered significant flaws. Major defects already been observed in the iPhone 14. Apple has also acknowledged and recognized these flaws, asserting they are trying to fix them. Therefore, if you are considering purchasing the new iPhone 14, you must read the following flaws first.
1. Camera Shaking
Users have encountered issues while using the 48-megapixel wide-angle camera with third-party applications. In particular, the malfunctioning camera in social networking applications such as Snapchat, Instagram, and TikTok. On social media, iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max users demonstrated a buzzing noise emanating from the camera, which is more troublesome than the inability to concentrate when using Snapchat.
Numerous camera components involved in focussing and stabilizing the picture seem to be moving fast and uncontrolled. Based on the media-posted recordings of this bizarre iPhone 14 Pro camera issue, it is only conjecture.
Uncertainty surrounds the scope of the iPhone 14 Pro camera problem. Apple is aware of the issue and is seeking a solution. Regardless of the app, a forthcoming firmware upgrade will likely prohibit the camera from functioning, as in the examples above.
If your camera is experiencing a buzzing issue, you should return it for a replacement. This is the only method to assure that the iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max was not permanently damaged. The second remedy is more irritating for those who like social media activity. To avoid the camera buzzing problem, you should ignore all social media until the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max get the official software update.
2. iMessage & FaceTime
Apple provided a paper addressing iMessage and FaceTime difficulties with the latest iPhone version. Apple explains in that paper that after setting up a new iPhone 14 or 14 Pro, some users may not get iMessages or FaceTime calls, and discussions in messages may appear as two different threads. Receivers may perceive your messages as originating from the incorrect account (such as your email address if you had selected your phone number).
A disadvantage of depending on iMessage for high-quality texting is that when iMessage malfunctions, you are forced to revert to SMS (the green bubbles), a decades-old standard that has not kept pace with current communications demands. Tim Cook believes purchasing an iPhone is the answer to green bubble concerns. However, this clearly excludes the most recent iPhones.
Apple’s iOS 16.0.1, released yesterday, includes a remedy for the issue. iOS 16.0.1 offers a few bug updates for the new iPhones, including a patch for a problem in which landscape images may seem blurry when zoomed in.
The upgrade should resolve activation difficulties with iMessage and FaceTime, restoring you to the blue bubble crew. Most iPhones should ask you to install the latest software during setup; however, if this does not occur, you may download the update by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update.
If you continue to have troubles after upgrading, Apple advises connecting your iPhone to a cellular network and choosing the phone number you want to use with the Messages app under Settings > Messages > Send & Receive.
3. Data Migration
Apple is investigating an issue that might cause the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, to freeze when transferring data from an earlier iPhone.
The document states that Apple is “aware of this problem and is conducting an investigation.”
Apple specifies that certain new iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max models may freeze and become unresponsive following an iCloud recovery or data transfer from a prior iPhone during the Quick Start procedure. Apple recommends that consumers forcibly restart their iPhone if it becomes unresponsive for longer than five minutes. New iPhone 14 Pro buyers had a similar activation difficulty on Friday. While the iPhone 14 Pro arrives with iOS 16, buyers must install the latest iOS 16.0.1 upgrade after setting up their new devices. This version has been provided primarily to address customer complaints with data transfer, authorization, and picture difficulties with the range.
