Solved: Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera blurry-pictures-gate

Richi Jennings | Aug. 25, 2015
So that's OK then.

Apple iPhone 6 Plus camera replace
"Apple has determined that, in a small percentage of iPhone 6 Plus devices, the iSight camera has a component that may fail causing your photos to look blurry. The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015. If your iPhone 6 Plus is producing blurry photos and falls into the eligible serial number range, Apple will replace your device's iSight camera, free of charge."

Apple admits its iPhone 6 Plus may have a hardware boo-boo. Some were made with a faulty rear camera, which is causing blurred pictures.

So, no, you're not going mad. The blurry photos aren't your fault.

Cupertino has announced a repair program. Check out your serial number and take it in to an Apple Store or "authorized service provider."

...
The 6 Plus -- along with the iPhone 6 -- has also been cited for its high-quality photo-taking skills. ... Apple made photography the focal point of its "Shot on iPhone 6" campaign this year.  MORE

So Trevor Mogg oscillates and modulates:

iPhone 6 Plus owners...if your apparent knack for taking fuzzy photos has caused you to question your picture-taking skills, then hold on, it might not be you. 
...
Though there are no details on the exact nature of the defect, it seems it may have something to do with the Plus's optical image stabilization capability, a feature absent from the smaller iPhone 6.  MORE
