Have you ever seen a motorcycle accessory where you can attach your phone to the steering wheel of your motorcycle and watch it while riding? THE Apple warns that exposure to high-frequency vibrations and certain frequency bands can degrade some of the phone's camera systems over time.
With one support document published on Friday entitled: "Exposure to vibrations, such as those generated by high-powered motorcycle engines, can affect the cameras iPhone", the Apple said his attitude iPhone in these vehicles may expose them to high-amplitude vibrations and in certain frequency bands as a result, which may lead to a degradation of the visual image stabilization of the telephone or OIS and the closed loop autofocus systems over time.
The above are the systems that help iPhone you to take great photos. Technically, the OIS system contains a gyroscope that reduces image movement and blur. When you move, the camera lens moves according to the angle of the gyroscope, which ensures that you take a nice photo. The closed-loop autofocus system, meanwhile, uses magnetic sensors to "measure the effects of gravity and vibration and determine the position of the lens so that the compensatory motion can be precisely adjusted," according to Apple.
“The AF OIS and closed loop systems in iPhone they are designed for durability ", the company explained. "However, as with many consumer electronics that include systems such as OIS, long-term direct exposure to high-bandwidth vibrations in certain frequency bands can degrade the performance of these systems and lead to reduced image quality for photos and videos. It is recommended to avoid exposure iPhone in extensive wide-angle vibrations. ”
If you are wondering if you can mount your phone on your camera, of course you can, but Apple just prefer to avoid it.
"High-power or high-intensity motorcycle engines produce intense wide-range vibrations, which are transmitted through the chassis and steering wheel. Its installation is not recommended iPhone "on motorcycles with high-power or high-volume engines, due to the range of vibrations in certain frequency ranges they create", the support document states.
