Faulty iPhone 6 cameras subject of Apple’s ‘iSight’ recall project

Has your iPhone 6 been taking particularly blurry and unsightly photographs lately? Don’t worry, your world is still as beautiful as it has always been. It’s Apple’s best-selling smartphone that has a few issues.

The defect it seems, affects a few iPhone 6 models’ cameras, which results in blurry photographs. The phone’s also unable to focus on a target in manual or automatic guises and, for the most part, fails to utilise its OIS system.

Apple has announced that with its new “iSight” recall project, it will repair certain iPhone 6 devices purchased between September 2014 and January 2015 that feature this problem. The issue only affects a “small percentage” of iPhone 6 models, but Apple has published a full explainer on its site to discover if your device is eligible for the recall.

It suggests that you should enter your serial number on its official support page to see if your phone is affected.

To check your serial number, head on over to the Settings page, navigate to the General tab and then select about. Your device’s serial number should be located here.

Apple will allow three avenues for users to repair the camera, which includes its retail stores, authorised service provider support or Apple technical support.

The company also advises that users perform a full back up of the device before handing it over for repairs.
