The thirteenth iteration of the iPhone beholds some of the best cameras out there. If we talk about is Pro variant, then it houses a triple rear camera and single front camera setup, both of which are capable of recording 4K videos at 60FPS. However, in spite of boasting a powerful specs sheet, it seems to have fallen behind in the real use case scenario.
In this regard, numerous iPhone 13 Pro users have voiced their concern that photos in Portrait Mode are all coming out overexposed! According to the users, the issue is affecting both the photos taken indoors as well as outdoors. Some have said that the exact same bug is present in the ProRes mode as well.

Going through numerous error reports and we are seeing one similarity among all of them- this issue first came to light after users had installed the iOS 16.4 update. To rectify this issue, users have already tried doing a restart, format data, and even reinstalling the OS from scratch, but none of them spelled out success. Som ven took their device to the Apple Genius bar and had their camera replaced, but that didn’t work out either.
So while this is definitely a concerning bug, but the fact that even changing the camera module wasn’t sufficient all but negates the possibility of the hardware failure. Moreover, the issue igniting for everyone after installing the latest iOS 16.4 couldn’t be a coincidence either. So as of now, all fingers are being pointed at that OS update as the possible culprit.
