If the camera is cracked it certainly suggests a relatively severe external impact. This would be assessed as accidental damage not covered by warranty, and impact could also have initiated a failure on the circuit board, particularly soldering.

You likely mean Youtube videos. Also, there is a recall on iphone 7 A1660 but it is concerning 'no service' issue. Or certain errors upon restore or update.

If your iphone has other damage like a cracked screen, they may charge an additional fee to fix that first. Then they will send it to Apple for replacement if it qualifies.
