There had been so much excitement and anticipation for the new iPhone 6. It was announced earlier that it would have a camera with a focus pixel autofocus feature along with optical image stabilization. So naturally, Apple fans couldn’t wait to purchase the iPhone 6 to test out these new features. Unfortunately, people were not too thrilled about the camera when they finally bought it. There seemed to be a malfunction in the camera in regards to how it captures color. When you take a picture with the phone, the photos look purplish and don’t stay to the true color of the environment. However, hardware testers at Tom’s Guide did some tests with the iPhone cameras and determined that the problem might be with the iOS 8.0 installed in the iPhone 6. Various iPhone 5’s were also tested with the iOS 7.0 and 8.0, and it was determined that the picture quality in 7.0 was better. Tom gave his findings to Apple and they are currently reviewing the situation. There have been no announcements as to what is causing this problem yet though. If it is merely a software issue then people won’t need to have their cameras replaced. In fact, they may be able to get their cameras fixed through thin air if Apple releases an update to the iOS 8.0 that solves the problem. We shall see.
The iPhone 6 has disappointed its fans in a few different ways. The camera problem is only part of it. The other disappointment comes with how thin and flexible the phone is. It is so flexible that the phone has been known to bend when placed in people’s back pockets. Naturally, consumers were very upset by this because they paid over $500 for a device that broke easily in their pocket. Critics think that Apple may even recall a record number of iPhone 6s because of this problem. Perhaps that is the best thing they can do because their camera issues are still a problem as well. If they recalled the iPhones, they could fix the camera problems and possibly replace people’s iPhone 6s with a better model. Otherwise, you are going to have a great number of consumers demanding a refund.
