Some iPhone 14 Users Are Getting This 'Shaking' Glitch While Using TikTok Or Snapchat

Zinger Key Points
  • iPhone 14 Pro users encounter extreme camera shake while using certain third party apps
  • Users take to social media to share instances of the problem, which appears to make the device crackle
  • Problem appears to be limited to the "Pro" model of the newest iPhone, according to 9to5Mac

Users of Apple Inc’s AAPL iPhone 14 are flagging an issue with third-party apps such as TikTok and the smartphone’s new camera technology. 

What Happened: The issue affects third-party apps such as TikTok, Meta Platforms Inc’s META Instagram and Snap Inc’s SNAP Snapchat applications, reported 9to5 Mac.

TikTok user Damian Munoz shared a video featuring the “iPhone 14 Pro Max bug” in a video and said the shaking takes place when “you try to record something.”

@damian.m.munoz This happens on the new #iphone14promax when you try to record something. When it’s first on front camera mode while recording something new. Switch to back camera and it happens. #apple #iphone #iphonetricks #bug #buggy ♬ Me Porto Bonito - Bad Bunny & Chencho Corleone

A YouTube user called “FloW” also shared an issue while using Snapchat with Apple’s newest smartphone.

Apple, TikTok and Meta did not immediately respond to Benzinga's queries on the camera shaking issues. Snap replied that it was "working directly with Apple to address reports from our community that the Snapchat Camera shakes for some with iPhone 14 software.”

Why It Matters: The shaking camera produces a noise that is akin to a “crackling” sound. This was noticeable in a video shared on Twitter by content creator Luke Miani. 

The problem appears to be contained only to the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera at the moment, according to 9to5 Mac.

Since this issue only affects the camera in third-party apps, it’s almost a software bug of a type, according to the report. 

Meanwhile, Apple is also investigating a bug that could cause iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models to freeze while transferring data from an older iPhone. 

Price Action: On Friday, Apple shares fell 1.1% in the after-hours trading to $150.70 and rose 0.4% in the after-hours trading, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
