    Hi everyone,
    This week end my I phone decided to stop focusing on nearby objects.
    No more wrist shots, even when I keep it at a certain distance (about 2 feet) or a group of watches the picture comes out blurry....
    I've only had it for one year and one month --no longer under warranty.
    Has that ever happened to anyone?
    My brother is telling me his I phone also has some problems focusing but he's had it for longer I believe.
    (his is a 7, mine is a 6).

    For a piece of equipment with that kind of a price tag it really sucks.
    Curious whether anyone has had any experience with such a situation.
    Best regards

    Have you tried zooming in a bit? I find my phone focuses better on watch dials if I zoom maybe 20% or so

    Dumb question perhaps, but do you restart your iPhone at regular intervals (about every few days)? Sometimes apps (including the camera) act wonky, but restarting the phone tends to get everything functioning normally again.

    In all seriousness. I thought it was just me but I've been noticing a behavior change as well with my 6+.
