Is it possible to take blurry pictures and videos when you’re using one of the top-performing camera modules on the market? You know that your Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr is equipped with one of the best possible cameras, so, what could be the cause, other than you?

You must have wrapped up a lot of packaging when you got the iPhone 8, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr, but have you taken care of that plastic foil as well? If you didn’t, you can now take it off and do another test, to see what kind of pictures you’re getting this time. If the problem persists…
