Blurry pictures and videos might seem like a minor problem only that they’re not. If you think of it, part of the reasons why iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are so popular was… that’s right, their camera module. So, what’s this thing you see with blurry pictures? How come you’re not getting the quality you’ve been looking for?
Just so you know, there may be more than one reason to take into account. This means that your options are varied and you are probably curious to know what is it that you can do it yourself, right? Because the thought of taking the device back to the store so quickly, even if the inspection will be backed up by the warranty, isn’t too pleasing.
Here’s how to fix the fuzzy camera pictures and videos on iPhone 8:
- The first thing you need to check is the back of your iPhone – right on top of the camera lens and the heart rate monitor, you might spot a thin protective plastic casing. If you forgot to take that one out when you’ve unpacked the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, expect for the blurry pictures. But this is actually a great news because all you have to do to fix it is to remove the plastic.
- The second thing you should try is to disable the camera stabilization feature – this one, although, in theory, designed for night-time use alone, might actually be active by default. To rule it out you will have to check the settings of the camera app and disable it.
- The third thing you can do is to clear the app’s data – you must have done this on other occasions, for other apps, but the path is the same. Go to Settings, at the General menu, and hit the Storage & iCloud Usage option. Next, tap the Manage Storage and the Documents and Data entries, to get to the list of apps whose data you can remove. Just to be sure, go to Edit and use the Delete All option (if you really know what to do, you can also manually select certain items and swipe left and then Delete only those items).
- Last but not least, you can try to reset the iPhone 8 – you have this option, again, at the Settings >> General menu. Once you’ve selected the Reset action and confirmed your identity by typing the Apple ID and password, you’ll only have to wait a few minutes. See if anything changes when the iPhone is officially reset.
One of these 4 options of how to fix blurry pictures and videos on iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will certainly work out for you!
