I would not buy Apple but presumably it could affect other makes? I have just been riding a non suspension push bike along very rough tracks in Northumberland. Perhaps time to rethink the solid handlebar mount I use

I've has a Samsung S20 mounted on my curvy top yoke via a magnetic mount since the phone was new, been no problems at all with vibes despite the near solid mounting.
Never had the Apple brand and don't feel the need to buy one tbh. Samsung all day.

It's the image stablization devices for the camera inside the latest models that get knackerd, so if you're using an old one (like me) then you're fine.
