    Damn, that sucks. Thanks Gator, I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Glad I’ve never used the USB outlet in my saddlebag now. Another reason to trade in for an Android phone.

    Just vibra-isolate the case from hard points of your bike and fear not. Put it on a poor conductor/vibration absorber (hoody,gloves,patrol sock, maxi-pad, etc) and fear no more. Hell, a soft [TPU] case may be good enough to attenuate the bad vibes that may be knocking the gyro out of calibration that is used to detect "shake" and adjust lens attitude accordingly.

    Never had a problem with mine just wondering if a new thing with Apple on their Newer Phones .. Have run Apple 10XR at 85 MPH + and never had a problem using several different options to get where I am going mostly Google Maps .. If they are just referring to the camera lens will that's another story I don't do Biker Videos with my phone when riding ..

    Sounds like the stuff from which start up companies are made…

    IDK. I’ve been using Rokform mounts on my handlebars for years and never had any issues that I know of. Don’t take videos or pics while riding but the camera is fine when I use it off the bike, like at grand daughter’s softball games.

    Most likely all the techies that came up with this theory did all their calc's on an Apple computer and never saw a bike,.......because they don't ride,........

    They're talking about the OIS not functioning properly anymore after prolonged exposure to vibration. It makes sense.

    I use the Quad Lock with Vibration Damper and went to well over 600 miles at Interstate Speed on my Chieftain Dark House 2 years ago and it's still working like new .. Not saying don't heed this warning from Apple .. Been thinking about a new Phone anyway ..

    I throw mine in the holder on the dash. Never an issue in that spot
