Apple warns: Engine damages iPhone camera

If you have an iPhone and it is powered by a motor, then it is damaging the phone camera. This is not a rumor written in the news, but a conclusion drawn by the iPhone itself.

Many modern smartphones include optical image stabilization, or OIS for short, to reduce motion blur in photos. The feature usually relies on moving components (usually lenses), which is why some phones produce a shocking noise when you shake them. Apple has just released a new supporting document that explains that prolonged vibrations, such as shaking from motor movement for example, can lead to camera damage on some iPhone models.

"As with many consumer electronics devices that include systems such as OIS, long-term direct exposure to high-amplitude vibrations within a certain frequency range can degrade the performance of these systems and lead to reduced image quality for photos and videos. . "Therefore, it is recommended that you avoid exposing your iPhone to high-amplitude vibrations," Apple wrote in the document.

It is not clear why Apple has published this article now. In recent years there have actually been several public denunciations. Someone wrote that after 3 hours on the motorway, the iPhone camera was completely blurred. Another wrote that he changed 5 iPhones until he realized that his engine Honda Shadow was to blame.
