Apple says iPhone camera performance may get damaged by motorcycle vibrations

Updated:1 month ago

New Delhi, Sep 13 (ANI): American tech giant Apple recently explained that high amplitude vibrations can damage its iPhone cameras' gyroscopes. As per The Verge, a new post on Apple's Support forum explains that exposing iPhones to high-amplitude vibrations, "specifically those generated by high-power motorcycle engines" could degrade the devices' camera system. The company further recommended against mounting an iPhone on a motorbike, as the vibrations may be transmitted via the bike's handlebars and chassis. The statement from the company further states that the optical image stabilization (OIS) and closed-loop autofocus (AF) systems in iPhone are designed for durability. Long-term direct exposure to high-amplitude vibrations within certain frequency ranges may degrade the performance of these systems and lead to reduced image quality for photos and videos. Additionally, in the new post, the company suggests using a vibration-dampening mount to lessen the risk to the phone and its camera system, if you're planning to mount your iPhone to a scooter.
