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 brought many users of these terminals upside down. But luckily the new update iOS 11.2.1 has finally fixed the bug.

Considered 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 a thousand euros for a mobile is that one of its most important elements does not work well. This is what was happening to a part 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 going to take a picture with the rear camera of the device is a failure that has not experienced all users of the X, 8 and 8 Plus, although the number of complaints have been sufficiently numerous as for Apple to take action on the matter.

As usual, the community of Apple users began to investigate on their own because some current iPhone had these autofocus failures.

A particular user managed to find the problem -of software- and solve it, which is a failure 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 of 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 this month of iOS 11.2 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 updated iOS 11.2.1 released yesterday returns all functions to HomePod, and as verified by the affected users, 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.
