Apple has admitted that a number of iPhone 6 Plus smartphones have faulty iSight camera lenses and is offering a free trade-in for any affected unit.
Apple posted a note on its website acknowledging the problem, although it did not say how many units it believes are affected.
“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 company said.
“The affected units fall into a limited serial number range and were sold primarily between September 2014 and January 2015."
Apple has said that anyone with an affected iSight camera is able to trade it in for a new one, as long as the phone is in good working order.
“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 has also created a search function on the page for iPhone 6 Plus owners to enter the serial number of their device to check whether it is affected by the problem.
However, if the device is broken or damaged, Apple said that it will need to be repaired before any new camera is issued, at the owner's expense.
"If your iPhone 6 Plus has any damage such as a cracked screen which impairs the camera replacement, that issue will need to be resolved prior to service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair," Apple added.
The recall is not the first time Apple has had to admit to a fault with its products. In June last year Apple warned European users that its two-pronged hardware charger could overheat and offered an exchange to anyone with an affected unit.
