Apple has issued a new warning to iPhone users in the world. That said, vibration in several patterns can cause damage to the iPhone’s camera. The vibration of the engine of a high-powered motorcycle is one of them. Macroamers report that iPhone cameras that have optical image stabilization or closed-loop autofocus are more likely to suffer such damage. This is because they use gyroscopes or magnetic sensors to capture images or videos.
According to Apple’s website, the iPhone’s camera’s optical image stabilization or closed-loop autofocus is built quite solidly. However, prolonged exposure to an object that is trembling violently can cause damage. The quality of the image or video contained in it tends to deteriorate. And for that reason, it has been advised not to keep the iPhone in contact with such objects for a long time.
That’s why we’re told to refrain from associating the iPhone directly with a high-powered engine motorcycle. Apple has even refused to connect the iPhone directly to vehicles such as electric scooters.
Earlier, Apple had said that if the iPhone’s camera has optical image stabilization or closed-loop autofocus, the performance of the camera can be poor if it comes close to the magnet. However, such problems are usually temporary. The damage from vibration is rather permanent.
The iPhone 7 and later Apple’s smartphones all have optical image stabilization or closed-loop autofocus. The iPhones of this model are more likely to be damaged by vibration.
