iPhone 14 Pro users complain about bugs in the camera and transfer utility

The first users of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are already actively complaining about problems with the new smartphones. Surprisingly, the problems are not observed with the new Dynamic Island, but with basic functions.

The first error occurs when transferring data from an old smartphone via iCloud or the Quick Start utility (turns on when two iPhones are nearby: activated and new). During the setup process, the device just freezes and stops responding to touch.

Apple has acknowledged the issue and is working on a fix. So far, users who encounter this error are advised to perform a hard reset if the smartphone is frozen for 5 minutes or more.

The second problem, also recognized by Apple, is the inability to connect to Wi-Fi during device activation. In this case, the user has two options:

  • Connect the smartphone to a PC or Mac for initial setup.
  • Select setup via PC, then return to the previous screen with setup via Wi-Fi and try to connect to the wireless network again. You may have to repeat this process a few times, but it should work eventually.

This was fixed in iOS 16.0.1, but iPhone 14 ships with iOS 16, so you still need a computer to update .

There is a third error, this time not related to the initial setup, but to the operation of the camera in third-party applications. When shooting through TikTok, Snapchat and other similar services, the camera starts to shake uncontrollably, which is why it cannot focus. When shooting a video, the blurred picture is accompanied by strange noise.

This is probably the second-generation optical image stabilization system that debuted in the 2022 Pro line. Users will have to wait until social networks are adapted to work with new cameras. For now, you can take photos and videos through the standard Camera app and use them for posts and stories.
