Have you experienced problems with the rear camera of your new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X? It is an old bug that has upside down many users of these terminals. But luckily, the new update, iOS 11.2.1 has finally fixed the bug.
Considering the best cameras that exist now in the market for smartphones, the sensors that mount the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X are among the best in their field. And obviously, what one least wants to pay if thousand euros for mobile is that one of its most important elements does not work well. This was happening to some of the users of the three new Apple terminals in the form of an error with the rear camera of the devices.
Problems with the iPhone X autofocus
Not being able to focus well on an object or element when taking a picture with the device’s rear camera is a failure that has not been experienced by all users of the X, 8, and 8 Plus. However, the number of complaints has been sufficiently numerous for Apple to take action on the matter. As usual, the community of Apple users began to investigate on their own because some current iPhones had these autofocus failures.
A particular user found and solved the software problem, a failure that happened when installing the version iOS 11.2 released a month ago. This user verified that when going back to the firmware iOS 11.1.2, the previous version, the camera of his iPhone stopped having faults, and the autofocus worked normally, being able to capture an image with the terminal. The bad? That when updating the mobile and returning to iOS 11.2, the problem with the camera was returning, so he made it clear that this version of the operating system was the one that was causing problems.
Install iOS 11.2.1
The release of iOS 11.2 this month also caused a serious security breach related to the Apple HomePod. This vulnerability was resolved with a server update that resulted in disabling remote access for shared users on Apple’s smart speaker. The iOS 11.2.1 update released yesterday returns all functions to HomePod, and as the affected users have verified, it has also fixed the problem with the cameras of recent models.
iOS 11.2.1 is available to download almost 24 hours ago, and if you have an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X, you can update it through the iOS Software Update feature.
