UPDATE: Apple Says Motorcycle Vibration could Damage Your iPhone, See How
Apple has warned iPhone owners to avoid picking up bad vibrations from powerful motorbikes, as they may damage camera systems, Apple has said.
In a support document obtained by flipmemes, the tech Gaint warned that Engine vibrations can harm phones’ optical-image stabilisation or closed-loop autofocus systems.
Owners of scooters and mopeds should also use “vibration-dampening mounts”, the document highlighted further.
Meanwhile, Several iPhone media users online has said their phones have been damaged after being attached to a motorcycle.
And Apple says several models of iPhone are susceptible to the damage.’High-amplitude vibrations’The affected systems are designed to improve picture quality by counteracting movement, vibrations, and the effects of gravity.
But high-power or high-volume motorcycle engines generate “intense high-amplitude vibrations”, the support page says, which can be transmitted through the frame and handlebars.
“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,” it says.
The solution is to refrain from attaching iPhones to the bike in the first place – something commonly done for navigation.
