The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were officially released on September 16. Since then, users have experienced several problems and bugs, ranging from battery issues, AirDrop not working, camera shake, and much more.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were indeed all sold with the first version of iOS 16, but awaiting customers to get their hands on the device would be iOS 16.0.1. This update was specifically designed for Apple’s latest premium iPhones and resolved a glitch that affected the ability to activate FaceTime and iMessage. Other issues facing iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users have not been determined.
Camera Shaking When Using Social Media Apps
Shortly following it was announced that iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max began to be delivered to customers, there were reports that the model’s Main camera shakes uncontrollably whenever the camera is used through apps such as Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram, and Instagram, which can result in the shaky video.
Apple has said that the issue can be resolved with an update to its software that it is planning to launch next week, reaffirming that users won’t need to buy a new camera. As long as the update is not made available, there isn’t going to be a solution that can fix the shaking camera.
iPhones Becoming Unresponsive After Data Transfer
In an internal memo obtained from MacRumors, Apple acknowledged that certain iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users could experience their new iPhone slowing down and not responding when they transfer information from an earlier iPhone. In its memo, Apple instructs users to temporarily reboot their iPhones to fix the issue. Apple has announced that it will fix this issue in the iOS 16 update next week.
AirDrop Not Working
Users have reported that AirDrop isn’t working with iPhone 14 Pro models, saying that attempts to AirDrop something from an iPhone 14 Pro to another iPhone will result in “waiting” being displayed indefinitely. At the moment, the issue appears to be focusing on those with iPhone 14 Pro models, which suggests that it might not be an issue that is widespread for iOS 16 customers.
Excessive Battery Drain
Although it’s early, certain users have reported abnormal battery consumption on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It’s normal for users to experience some battery drain during the days following the installation of an iPhone, so we’ll need to wait and check if the reports persist or are just temporary. Users of other devices are also experiencing battery drain while running iOS 16.
Slow Camera App
The new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users are complaining about the “slow” stock Camera app on their latest iPhones. The complaints state that the camera may take a few seconds to load once it’s opened. Some users have suggested that this issue may be related to the RAM management feature on the most recent iPhone models. However, the exact cause hasn’t yet been identified. Apple might also address the issue in an update coming next week.
