Google's Pixel smartphones appear to have a weird connection with Apple's latest flagship device, the iPhone 7 Plus. Of late, a good number of Pixel users have been complaining about a strange bug which distorts the images (screenshots) sent from the iPhone 7 Plus on Google's Product Forum.
Strangely, this problem is occurring only when images are being sent from Apple iPhone 7 Plus to the Google Pixel smartphones. The images sent from the latter to the former, though appear like they normally should without any distortion.
Oddly enough, a screenshot of the iPhone 7 Plus's home screen appears normally but the screenshot of others regardless of being a stock app or third-party app is getting distorted when sent to the Pixel phones reports the claim.
Although the primary reason behind this bug is still unknown and Google is yet to acknowledge this issue, a few users claim that the bug is due to some issues in image processing on Android 7.1 Nougat. Also, as reported by Android Police, the issue doesn't seem to appear on devices running Android 7.0 Nougat such as the Nexus 6.
A few users on the forum have also complained that the same issue appeared when screenshots are sent from Apple iPhone 7 as well.
Of late, Google's Pixel smartphones have been in the news for all the bad reasons. Earlier, they were plagued by a connectivity issue which seems to have been fixed with the latest security patch. Users have also complained about a Bluetooth pairing issue - unable to connect the Pixel phones to their cars.
