When you think about the latest iPhone upgrade, what usually comes to mind is a flashy screen display, impressive battery life and a high definition camera lens to match.

However, for some iPhone users, this hasn't gone exactly to plan.

There have been multiple instances of iPhone users attempting to use their camera - only to find a bizarre buzzing problem which totally disrupts their ability to take pictures and videos.

Taking to Twitter, one iPhone user showed their followers exactly where the heart of the problem lay captioning the post: "So uh, we’re having some issues with the 14 Pro Max camera."

Take a look below:

The video shows the new iPhone 14 Pro Max unable to focus on anything, leaving the screen with a blurry and jittery display.

Upon turning the phone around, you can hear a noticeable buzzing sound seemingly emanating from the camera lens before the video creator says: "Sir, you are in for an Apple store visit."

The video has since wracked up over 4.5k likes, nearly 500 retweets and hundreds of comments.

Many were quick to share their similar issues with the latest iPhone model, attesting that the lack of focus and buzzing sound most commonly happen when using certain social media apps.

These include the popular platforms like Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok.

The videos have led iPhone users to speculate whether these third-party social media apps trigger the bug - whereas the phone's in-built camera is reported to not have the same issue.

One Twitter user pointed this out saying: "My 14 Pro does the same thing, but only in Instagram or Snapchat, never happens in the stock camera app."

The concern, more than just a fuzzy screen or buzzing phone, is that the vibration could lead to possible damage within the phone and lead to much bigger issues down the line - even permanent damage to the sensitive internal components.

"Yep this is enough to have me wait for the 15," one person wrote.

Another tweeted: "Well [the] iPhone14 Pro has already camera stabilisation issues. Imagine spending $1,800 for a phone with bugs."

The iPhone 14 Pro, 'designed for durability' according to Apple's website, boasts a Super Retina XDR display.

Alongside this, Apple claims: "The Pro camera system gets massively more Pro."

With an 'all-new 48MP Main camera with an advanced quad-pixel sensor" alongside "up to 4x the resolution'.

The phone, that retails for over £1,000, states that the new camera is perfect "for jaw-dropping cropping."

This isn't the first bug iPhone 14's have had.

The tech giant recently had to address major iMessage and FaceTime issues with the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max in which the two communication apps could not be properly activated.

The bug was later fixed with a new software update - iOS 16.0.1.

However, it's clear that the reported vibrating cameras and blurry camera displays will not be so easily fixed.
