Apple launches replacement program for blurry iPhone 6 Plus cameras

Apple has launched a replacement program to address a camera issue affecting a "small percentage" of iPhone 6 Plus units. The company says that a component in devices sold between September 2014 and January 2015 may fail, causing photos taken with the rear camera to look blurry (as shown above).

iPhone 6 Plus owners can check to see if they are eligible for a replacement or repair by entering their phone’s serial number on a dedicated support page for the issue. An iPhone's serial number can be found by opening the Settings app, selecting "General" and then tapping "About".

If a device is eligible for repair, an iPhone 6 Plus owner can have their camera replaced at no charge through an Apple retail store, or an Apple Authorised Service Provider.

Apple recommends that users backup their personal data before taking their phone in for service.

Only the iPhone 6 Plus is affected by this issue.
