According to Apple, vibrations such as those produced by motorbikes can damage iPhone camera systems.
Engine vibrations can impair optical image stabilization and closed-loop focusing systems, which assist capture crisp, sharp photos by compensating for movement.
As a result, the phones should not be connected to powerful motorcycles for navigation purposes, according to Apple’s support page.
It also recommended motorcycle and scooter owners to use “vibration-dampening mounts.”
According to the warning, “certain iPhone models’ powerful camera systems integrate technologies such as optical image stabilisation and closed-loop focussing on helping you capture stunning photos even in tough conditions.”
“These systems automatically adjust for movement, vibrations, and gravity’s impacts so you can concentrate on capturing a beautiful image.”
Long-term direct exposure to high-amplitude vibrations within specific frequency bands, according to Apple, can damage these systems’ performance, lowering visual quality.
“It is suggested that you should not expose your iPhone to prolonged high-amplitude vibrations,” the warning stated.
“While attaching your iPhone to small-volume or electric motors, such as mopeds and scooters, may result in lower-amplitude vibrations, a vibration dampening attachment is suggested to reduce the risk of harm to your iPhone.
