Apple iPhone 6 camera
The iPhone 6 release didn’t go quite as smoothly as Apple intended this year, and we’ve already covered disasters such as Bendgate and the buggy 8. These are just two of the many issues, and a new one seems to be emerging, as a strange camera bug has been reported lately on a handful of iPhone 6 units.

When it comes to the iPhone 6, we thought we’d seen pretty much everything that could go badly, but we were wrong. Following Bendgate, a disaster in which various users reported the phone to bend in their own pockets, some are now reporting a new camera issue. The bug is difficult to describe (that’s why you can find a demonstration video below), but it basically involves a flaw in the optical image stabilization feature, creating wavy footage. The issue isn’t limited to video capture, and also affects photographs, rendering the camera useless. This is a huge issue which hasn’t been reported on any other device aside from the iPhone 6, so it’s something very serious that Apple needs to address as soon as possible.

A simple way to fix this problem quickly is to return your iPhone (as long as you have a warranty on it), or wait and see if and when Apple will recall affected devices. According to some reports, the iPhone 6 Plus is also affected by this bug. Here’s the video demonstrating the horrible blurry/wavy effect that’s being involuntarily caused by the iPhone 6’s broken camera.

This is definitely a serious issue, and it’s not the first. Apple has certainly stepped down the quality this year, but that didn’t really impact their success, as the tech giant has sold over 10 million units of their new devices since September. However, Apple will need to step up their game next year and make sure that customers who have already purchased their devices are fully satisfied, especially considering how expensive these products are.

Have you experienced this bug on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus? If so, please let us know by leaving a comment, and rest assured we will let you know as soon as any news comes up.

iPhone 6 Plus Review
iPhone 6 Plus Review Lisa Gade reviews the iPhone 6 Plus. This is Apple’s 5.5” iPhone with a full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS display. The phone runs iOS 8 and it has an anodized aluminum body available in silver, space gray or gold. It’s just 7.1mm thin to offset otherwise large, pablet dimensions and it’s a 6 ounce unibody design with the 2915 mAh battery sealed inside. The iPhone 6 Plus runs on Apple’s dual core 1.4GHz A8 64 bit CPU with 1 gig of RAM and your choice of 16, 64 or 128 gigs of storage. It has a 1.2MP front and 8MP rear camera both with BSI and fast lenses. Other features include Touch ID (fingerprint sensor), LTE 4G, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, NFC for Apple Pay and a GPS. Pricing starts at $299 with 2 year contract or $750 full retail. Beyond the much larger screen size, optical image stabilization (OIS) on the rear camera and a much bigger battery set it apart from the iPhone 6. * Read our in-depth written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/phones/iPhone-6-Plus.htm PT30M8S
