SEPTEMBER 25, 2017

The camera on your iPhone 8 plus won't work and you don't know why. With features like optical zoom, portrait mode, and a wide angle lens, the camera is really what separates the iPhone 8 Plus from other smartphones. In this article, I'll explain why your iPhone 8 Plus camera is not working and show you how to fix the problem for good!

Are You Using Something Other Than The Built-In Camera App?

Third-party camera apps are typically less reliable than the built-in Camera app on your iPhone 8 Plus. If you're using a third-party camera app, it could be the reason why your iPhone 8 Plus camera is not working.

The built-in Camera app was designed by Apple, so you know the coding is rock solid and perfectly compatible with iOS. On the other hand, third-party apps could be coded poorly, making them prone to software crashes.

Why Won't My iPhone 8 Plus Camera Work?

Your iPhone 8 Plus won't work because the Camera app crashed, your iPhone software crashed, or the physical camera on your iPhone is broken. More often than not, it's just a minor software bug causing the problem!

The steps below will help you figure out why your iPhone 8 Plus camera is not working and show you how to fix the problem for good!
