ISSUE 4: iPhone 14 Pro slow camera app
Some iPhone 14 users are facing a slow camera app issue, the app is taking a long time to open. Some users reported that the camera app is taking 4-5 seconds after tapping on it.
The issue is currently limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. As reported, the issue is happening when the Camera app is running in the background.
In addition, the issue is not available on third-party apps. MacRumors says that the issue does not appear in the video mode in the camera app.
No official response yet.
To avoid this issue you should manually close and reopen the camera app, or perform a software restart. But restarting the device won’t provide a permanent fix, and neither does factory resetting.

According to multiple readers’ responses on MacRumors, Apple is aware of this issue. You can expect the fix in the coming weeks.
There’s a temporary workaround to send files, you should change the AirDrop settings to “Everyone”, for that, you can access the option by heading into the Control Center. This temporary fix won’t work for password sharing.
