iPhone 14 Pro photos appear grainy, high contrast or keep crushing shadows in low light
Apple’s recent iPhone 14 Pro is a real game-changer when it comes to design and features. It comes with an upgraded camera, an Always-on display, and Dynamic Island, and much more.
The 48MP camera deserves a special mention for its mind-blowing picture detail. It also has a 12MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 12MP telephoto sensor with up to 3x optical zoom.
However, some iPhone 14 Pro users have been complaining about its overly aggressive camera AI. For instance, we recently highlighted an issue where images from the device seem overprocessed or overexposed.
iPhone 14 Pro photos appear grainy or high contrast
Is it just me or is nighttime or low-light video just awful on the iPhone 14 Pro? Is mine faulty? : iPhone
It’s been like this since the 12/13 Pro. In natural light the camera is fantastic, as soon as conditions are less than optimal the camera overcompensates with aggressive sharpening and AI correction.
Apparently, the quality of the photos distorts under low light and the final product has an incredibly high contrast look.
The iPhone’s camera constantly crushes the shadows from images captured in low-light conditions resulting in an image that significantly lacks detail.
According to some, Apple’s aggressive sharpening and AI correction are what’s responsible for the problem at hand.

It appears that the issue also affects images taken with Night Mode on and videos shot in less-than-ideal conditions.
Unfortunately, the team is yet to comment on the issue. We hope Apple fixes the problem where photos taken from the iPhone 14 Pro appear grainy, have high contrast or lack detail in shadows.
We will keep tabs on further developments and update this space to reflect the same so stay tuned.
