How to Fix Camera Focus Issue on iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

You can fix the camera focus issue on your iPhone by either updating the device or downgrading it to the previous iOS version. Since Apple has released iOS 11.2.1 with the permanent fix to the ongoing problem, I would recommend you to update your iPhone to the latest iOS version instead of downgrading it.

Before updating your device, make sure it’s at least 50% charged and has the proper Wi-Fi connection.

Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone.
