    tonight I was filming the sun set with my iPhone, I left my iPhone on my windowsill for 1 hour and when I went back to see the footage the iPhone wasn’t recording and the camera app screen was blurry so I checked to see how much of the video was recorded and only 10 minutes was recorded. I have 19gb of storage left on my iPhone so that isn’t an issue and I closed all apps in the background before I started the recording.

    I’m now worried how could the recording have stopped on its own without an actual person stopping it? And I don’t get why the image was blurry on the camera app when I went back to check the recording.

    Could the phone have just overloaded or glitched out or do I have some kind of ghost or intruder in the house?

    If it overheats, it shuts down. You said it was left in the sun. Perhaps the focus didn't get set properly before leaving it unattended.

    If there was an intruder in your house, then I would say you have bigger things to worry about over your iPhone camera. But as someone else alluded to, I’m guessing maybe it overheated when you left it in the window, unless the sunlight was directly on it.
