It is worth protecting iPhones from motorcycling, as the cameras of the phones can be seriously damaged


Apple has drawn users’ attention in an official statement to the detrimental consequences of certain environmental impacts.

Users have also complained on several related forums that the iPhone’s camera has been damaged in situations where the device has been mounted on a motorcycle for an extended period of time. Apple has responded to these reports and is warning people in an official statement why it is not worth using the phones while motorcycling.

IPhones that have OIS, or Optical Image Stabilization, and AF, or autofocus, are at risk of injury.

Apple’s announcement revealed that the engines generate high-intensity, high-amplitude vibrations that reach phones through the chassis and handlebars of vehicles as well. These vibrations can also damage the camera’s OIS and AF systems in the long run.

For lower-powered engines, mopeds, and electric vehicles, the risk is lower, but you should still use a tripod that reduces the effects of vibration.

The OIS function works on iPhone 6 Plus and later, and AF is available on iPhone XS and later. The Ultra Wide Camera on iPhone 11 and later doesn’t have OIS, but it’s also worth paying attention to proper protection and sparing your devices from vibration.
