    Yea I heard about that one. Doubt it will resolve this. My next option will be to factory reset.

    Previously, when I erased all settings and content, my watch kinda just figured everything out once I restored from the backup.

    Resetting just the settings, though, I had to go back into the watch settings (via both watch/phone, depending on the setting) and re-set up location services, Siri, notifications, etc. The two devices remained connected so it was only a minor hassle to set up the specific settings again. All of the actual data (activity, apps, etc) stayed the same.

    Unless you need to take photos in the next 2 days waiting to see if the update fixes maybe a good idea

    Yeah I’m planning on waiting another week or so before I factory reset the phone. I’ve got a trip planned in 3 weeks that I could really use my camera for. I had to dust off my old digital camera as another backup lol.

    Yes, you need to set up everything again. I couldn't restore from an earlier watch backup since it messed up the pairing again. I even had to recreate my watch faces and so on, it was basically like taking the watch out of the box and starting from scratch...

    Tried Microsoft Pix camera app. I can't tell if it's perfect but the images look focused. When I switch back to the Apple camera app it's still broken.

    Update: I downloaded 11.1.2 to my Mac, it allowed me to upgrade to keep data. Camera issues still occurred after going from 11.2 to 11.1.2 with Data.

    Hey huys!

    I recently bought an iPhone 8 and noticed that some photos are a little grainy and lack the quality I got from my previous iphone 6S. Here's two photos:

    Could it be something related to iOS 11.2?

    They totally knew this was going to be a big thing and snuck it in with the 11.2.1 update.

    My camera works per usual now. Didn't reset any settings or do any gimmicky tricks either.

    These pics are standard and look fine. BUT, 11.2.1 does update the autofocus issue IF you had it.

    Found out my 6splus was hardware related. Really sucks because the phone works great otherwise and I’m not ready to drop $800-$1000 for a phone or have a recurring monthly phone payment. I think I have the known 6s camera shake but I don’t qualify for the replacement.

    Looks like 11.2.1 has totally cured my iPhone 8's focus issues with my case magnets - now focuses perfectly.

    Would be nice if Apple actually admitted their ****-ups more often...

    11.2.1 fixed my focus issues on an 8 Plus.

    I'm glad to say this update has fixed my iP8+ camera focus issue. Thanks Apple, if you'll just replace my damaged case we'll be evens ;)

    I had this issue. Although mine was caused by a magnet in the phone case too close too the OIS. I cut the case (as its for work only) and removed the magnet and my camera works perfectly. I’m running 11.2. Before it use to focus and refocus and zoom in and out very quickly, and you could see the OIS working and moving around. I can’t say I’ve had a software related issue however.

    I’ve just updated and my phone’s still having the focus issue (iPhone 7).

    Not ideal at all, as it’s only sightly out of warranty and I don’t feel it’s fair to pay for a replacement phone.

    The case magnets were my problem too. I took my wallet case off and after a few minutes everything was fine. I had the problem with quality pictures and also my portrait mode. Taking the wallet case with the magnet off my phone completely fixed it. I'm so happy I found this thread and didn't commence with a factory reset. I had already tried resetting the settings which didn't work. Finally this dogs...thank you
