It’s no secret – the flagship Pixel phones have been some of the most problematic in the past 12 months or so…
It all started with the promising Pixel 6 series, which instead of solidifying Google’s position as one of the most reliable and easy to recommend Android phone manufacturers, did… TheReverseThanks to a number of frustrating hardware and software issues that tech geeks callbugsWell, the cause of the error must have spread because now it is none other than Apple itself dealing with something similar (albeit not severe) an insectinjury! Just days after the official release of the iPhone 14 series, many users reported what seemed to be one of the weirdest hardware issues our industry had ever seen (not meant to sound dramatic).
Make the wrong rear camera system for iPhone 14 Pro Shaking, bouncing, physically dancing, or whatever you want to name it. The camera was impossible to use, or in some more serious cases, it made an audible hustle or noise when they were taking photos or videos in third-party apps like Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram.
I’ve been using the iPhone 14 Pro for a month now, and it’s safe to say – It looks like your iPhone has been infected with the Pixel virus! Here are the (many) bugs that iPhone 14 Pro and iOS 16 users have encountered over the past month… They are more than ten.
Multiple bugs on your iPhone 14 Pro running iOS 16 brought back the worst memories of the Pixel 6
Do any of these errors sound familiar, iPhone users?
The easiest way to tell this story is to break it down into twoslash. In the first part, I will give you a breakdown of the issues I personally encountered on Apple’s “flawless” iPhone 14 Pro.
All in all, the bugs I’ve come across in my country iPhone 14 Pro Not as much as they were after spending one month with Pixel 6 Pro Back in 2021. However, it’s still worth talking about. Oh, keep in mind that these never have “official names”, so I’ll improvise…
Face ID display orientation error on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 mini on iOS 16
This has to be one of the most widely encountered iOS 16 (and iPhone 13) bugs and as the story often goes, it includes a new feature. You may know that since receiving iOS 16, some iPhones (definitely newer) now let you unlock your phone with Face ID in landscape orientation. This is useful when you are in bed, watching a video in full screen mode, or playing games and have to use Face ID.
Face ID screen orientation error will look a lot like the iPhone forgetting to tilt half of the UI, so you’re left with a broken system. Fortunately, pressing the power button “fixes” the problem.
As for the actual fix, I have to say that I haven’t had the problem since upgrading to iOS 16.0.3, but in the meantime, this is not an issue that you can ever detect (because I don’t unlock the phone in landscape often). For the record, Apple hasn’t explicitly said that this bug has been fixed.
Video playback error on your iPhone 14 Pro running iOS 16.0.3
Again, a simple on/off operation helped solve the problem, which I first saw and didn’t test again (at least not yet).
Photos app clears bugs on iPhone 14 Pro and iOS 16
I’m honestly not sure if this error existed on iOS before, but I seem to have noticed it happening quite often after switching to iPhone 14 Pro on iOS 16.
It happens when you tap (you know – when you take a photo in the Photos app with two fingers) to close a photo. The iPhone will somehow create and display a thumbnail of this image in the lower left corner of the screen and leave it there until you leave the app and open it again.
I’ve encountered this error recently (on multiple occasions), so I don’t think it has been taken care of yet.
48MP Photo Editing Bug on iPhone 14 Pro (Fixed)
As a disclaimer, I have to say that this bug is now fixed (thanks to iOS 16.0.3) but I have to tell you that anyway, since it’s the first day bugs on the iPhone 14 Pro that we’re talking about.
In short, editing a 48MP photo in the first few weeks on the iPhone 14 Pro was a hit or miss, because the photo would take forever to apply any edits and eventually crash the entire app.
48MP high-resolution photo adjustments require a lot more power than the usual 12MP shots, and it’s clear that even a device with unparalleled CPU and GPU performance for the iPhone 14 Pro needs some optimization to make it run smoothly. Fortunately, it is now.
Copy and paste bugs on your iPhone 14 Pro and iOS 16
This is the most annoying error you have encountered on your iPhone in a while now. The most common thing is that despite what some websites have reported, the iOS 16.0.2 or iOS 16.0.3 update did nothing to fix this annoying bug (at least for me).
Anyway, iPhone 14 Pro and iOS 16 now have this new feature which asks your permission to copy and paste other text/information from one app to another. The problem is that the iPhone is supposed to ask for permission by only showing the dialog once and remembering your choice. But it doesn’t ask me now if I want to allow/disallow pasting literally every time I try to paste text into a Google Docs document.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 users take to Twitter to complain about bugs in iOS 16 (Apple responds with early software update)
Two other bugs were shared by iOS 16 users on Twitter and are not mentioned in this story.
And with the iPhone 14 Pro and iOS 16 bugs that I’ve discovered myself, we’ve come up with the things other people have encountered and shared online. Let’s just say the list is much longer than I expected and it’s definitely not complete (you can find a lot of iPhone error reports using a simple Google/Reddit search).
The error causes the iPhone 14 Pro to freeze, requiring a restart; Another error that won’t let you restart your iPhone
Apple acknowledges that there is an ‘SIM not supported’ error that prevents iPhone 14 users from using the SIM card
Error messing with Control Center on iPhone 14 and iOS 16; Another error that makes iPhone blink like a traffic light
Dynamic Island and Camera app crashes for iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 users on iOS 16
Dynamic Island may be one of the most exciting new visual changes to the iPhone in a while, but it’s clearly not perfect, as can be seen in From videos shared on TwitterMeanwhile, some iPhone 14 Pro Max users are facing Camera app crash (I was able to repeat this error on iOS 16.0.2) and Spotlight Search inconsistencies.
iPhones can be buggy too but Android issues are usually more serious and take longer to get rid of
iPhones remain more reliable as a whole.
However, what, in my opinion, is most important when it comes to buggy phones, whether they come from appleAnd the The Google or another band, are:
- How severe are errors and how they affect the basic functions of your phone
- How quickly does a phone maker address and fix problems before they start to spread and become really annoying
And this is where Apple seems to be winning big compared to Android.
An example of Apple’s timely reactions to bugs is Cupertino’s quick response to the iPhone 14 Pro’s biggest bug (the camera shake issue that started the story) which was fixed within a few days after it was detected on an iPhone only two weeks old at the time. Of course, an exception to this rule makes a newly discovered SIM error (still new to qualify as old).Anyway, it can be said that the most important thing here is Danger One of the bugs I’ve encountered on Apple and Google phones in the past year. In other words, my iPhone has never been so fast that it made me stop using it. Furthermore, I haven’t come across all the bugs that this story talks about.
On the other hand, the Pixel 6 Pro caused issues with basic features like the fingerprint reader, automatic screen brightness, battery endurance, and overall performance, which all Pixel users had to deal with. This literally made me put it up for sale (about eight months after I bought it) and get an iPhone 13 mini instead, which has only been reliable ever since (on iOS 15 and iOS 16).
