iPhone 14 Pro camera breaks while using some apps

Fix coming next week

Published

on

If you’re a heavy social media user, you might want to hold off on buying the new iPhone 14 Pro. Several users online have reported major issues surrounding the phone’s camera and the world’s most popular photo-sharing apps.

First collated by 9to5Mac, the iPhone 14 Pro reportedly suffers from uncontrollable camera shaking while using certain apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok. A few users are also reporting the same issue with the Pro’s bigger brother, the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Additionally, users are also reporting a “pretty strange mechanical noise” whenever the issue occurs. Based on a few videos posted on the issue, it’s a disturbing noise. It sounds like a combination between a Taser and a bee rattling inside a box.

Earlier this month, Apple launched the iPhone 14 series. As expected, the two Pro variants feature a big upgrade to their cameras. Besides a larger 48-megapixel main sensor, they also have a new imaging system called the Photonic Engine. Compared to the brand’s other offerings, the Pro and the Pro Max are certainly a coveted pair.

Unfortunately, Apple has not addressed the issue yet. A fix has yet to come. One can also debate on which party should issue the fix. While Apple can fix the issue itself, the affected social media apps can also fix things on their end.

Update: A few hours after posting this article, Apple issued a statement for The Verge. The company hopes to release a fix next week, confirming that the issue is on their end and not on the individual apps.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales is getting a PC port

Coming later this fall

Published

on

After the first one got a much-awaited port, it was only a matter of time before a second webslinger pops up on PC. Enjoying a much shorter lead time than the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is officially getting a PC port later this year.

Earlier this year, Sony released the official port for the first game, Marvel’s Spider-Man, featuring Peter Parker as the titular superhero. At the time, Insomniac and Nixxes Software (the studio behind the port) only had perfunctory plans to bring Miles Morales along for the PC ride.

In practically no time at all, Sony has announced the official coming of the second game through its own teaser trailer. Though the trailer does not end with a release date, it will launch sometime in the fall of this year.

In terms of ports, Sony has found massive success in bringing its formerly exclusive games to more markets. Now, PC players can finally get access to critically acclaimed title from consoles. In Spider-Man’s case, various modders have already created a thriving community for the first game. One such segment involves replacing Peter’s model with other characters like Stan Lee.

Will Miles Morales get the same hype and fanfare? Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales continues the story started by Peter Parker. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Miles sets off on his own adventure with electrifying powers.

If you can’t wait for the PC port, the game is still available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
