iPhone warning to People Who Mount Phone on Bikes

    iPhone has issued a warning to iPhone users who mount their phones on their motorbikes. The phone by many is used as a GPS device when they ride or drive on their vehicles to leverage its powerful GPS features. iPhones mounted on motorbikes are useful for drivers in navigating unknown, new locations.

    Now, Apple is has stated that these iPhones mounted on motorbikes are prone to damage, and users are being warned their cameras can get permanently damaged due to the constant vibrations from the motorcycles.

    iPhone warns high amplitude vibrations can cause camera damage while riding


    In an Apple Support post, Apple is warning users that high amplitude vibrations generated by high-powered engines of motorcycles could damage the cameras of iPhones.

    Sometimes the damage could be permanent, according to the post. Bike riders usually mount their expensive iPhones on their bikes as a navigational tool.

    The iPhone camera’s optical image stabilizer (OIS) and closed-loop autofocus (AF), according to Apple, could be damaged by such excessive vibrations.

    All iPhone models since iPhone 7 have both the OIS and AF features, which can be damaged when the device is exposed to excessive vibrations.

    These vibrations only apply to high-powered motorcycle engines and not e-bikes and mopeds which can have vibration dampening mounts for the iPhone.

    Apple’s advisory on the use of iPhones on motorcycles may pose some questions for users. Alternatively, one can use a GPS device on your motorcycle, then you can get alternative and cheaper devices to provide the needed navigation when using your motorbike. The costs of repair of damaged iPhones can be highly prohibitive, hence the need to avoid such expensive repairs.
