Some iPhone users are reporting camera errors after the iOS 11.4 update
Following reports of a quick battery drain with iOS 11.4, a number of issues have arisen since a bug apparently crippled the iPhone’s camera.
IOS 11.4 seems to have a lot of problems. Earlier, a number of iPhone users reported that their batteries were depleting faster than usual, and now many customers are posting their problems on social media regarding camera issues. The tweets talk about issues ranging from the display turning black in camera mode to a recent iOS update error that prevented Snapper from focusing properly.
One user said that his display turned black when he opened the camera app, adding that he has been experiencing this problem since he updated his iPhone to iOS version 11.4. This Apple Support replies, “Thank you for reaching out to us about the camera. This is not normal behavior, so it’s okay for you to be anxious. We are ready to team up and solve it together. Work through the steps in this link and let us know the results Thank you! “
Another user posted a video on Twitter showing a disturbing movement while opening the camera app. He says he has updated his iPhone to iOS 11.4 and has been having problems since the update, suspecting the issue will be fixed soon.
Last week, a number of iPhone users expressed their concerns in the Apple forum about the rapid battery drain with the latest update. Although Apple has posted some solutions in the forum, many have returned to earlier versions of iOS. Apple released a stable version of its iOS 11.4 in May using AirPlay 2 with support for a homepod stereo pair and wireless multi-room audio system. Errors have been corrected and improved.
Apparently, every iOS device updated to version 11.4 has been affected by a battery drain issue. According to GSMarena, it worked for some users when Wi-Fi was turned off, while a connection to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network (instead of 5GHz) helped save many more batteries. There is a third group of users who have returned to iOS 11.3.1 to run for more hours before inserting their phone charger.
iOS 11.3 was a major update after it was criticized by iPhone makers after it was revealed that it was deliberately slowing down iPhones to save battery life. iOS 11.3 adds new features to show the battery health of an iPhone or iPad and recommends a battery service if needed.
The company recently announced iOS 12, which will allow iPhone and iPad users to experience faster app launches and more responsive typing experience. The camera app will now open 70 percent faster, with the keyboard responding 50 percent faster than before. The overall OS will be smooth to use overall. Notably, Apple will launch iOS 12 on all iPhone 5s devices launched in 2013.
