Apple's decision to increase camera size on the iPhone seemed to be hit at first. The 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus almost doubled its smaller screened counterpart, the iPhone 6 in sales in pre-orders. But outselling the iPhone 6 was not the only thing the iPhone 6 Plus became famous for. Soon after the device's widespread availability, users began to report issues which caused their device to bend in their pocket.

As with all things Apple, the problem caught widespread attention and became dubbed as #bendgate. However, reports surfaced later that Apple had fixed the issue, by changing the materials used to manufacture the device. However, looks like #bendgate is not the only issue iPhone 6 Plus users have to worry about, as this time it looks like the camera on the device is facing some problems.

The problem appears to be related to the Optical Image Stabilization found on board the iPhone 6 Plus, something which many users were desperate to have on the iPhone.
