Hi,

Something is wrong with my iphone 6s+ camera. The image is jittery and af keeps microadjusting even if the phone is braced on a table. It seems as if there is a problem with the image stabilization mechanism that is vibrating the lens.

Anyone had this issue? Will Apple replace the phone under Applecare+ or will I have to leave it for repair of up to 5 days?

I have an appointment around 11pm and would like to know what to expect as I need the phone.

Thanks.

There are no hard rules but a jittery camera, even when the phone is braced against something, is a sign of the stabilization module in the camera going bad.

Hi,

I went in and they replaced the rear camera. The genius said they have encountered this problem usually with iphone 6(not sure if they said 6s or just 6). Cost without applecare would have been $59. Took about 1.5 hours IIRC to repair.
