Apple says motorcycle vibrations may degrade iPhone camera performance

Apple says motorcycle vibrations may degrade iPhone camera performance

If you've been mounting the iPhone onto the motorcycle while riding, Apple recommends against that practice.

In a new support document, Apple states that the OIS and closed-loop AF systems in the iPhone may be damaged if exposed to long-term direct exposure to high-amplitude vibrations within certain frequency ranges, sepcifically those generated by high-power motorcycle engines. These vibrations can be transmitted through the chassis and handlebars.

In addition, Apple cautions that vehicles with small-volume or electric engines (e.g. mopeds and scooters) generate lower-amplitude vibrations and recommends users to have a vibration dampening mount to minimise the risk of damage.

OIS can be found on the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE (2nd-gen), iPhone 7 and later models. Closed-loop AF is available on the iPhone XS and later models.
