Apple introduced MagSafe chargers with the new iPhone 12 series line. The new wireless charging method is expected to remain in future iPhone versions as well. Apple has now revealed the impact of the magnetic charger on medical devices such as implanted pacemakers and defibrillators. These devices may contain sensors that respond to magnets and radios when in close contact.
IPhones have magnetic components that the company says emit electromagnetic fields. All MagSafe accessories also contain magnets and the MagSafe charger and MagSafe Duo charger contain radios. The company, through a statement, says these magnets and electromagnetic fields could interfere with medical devices.
However, Apple went on to announce that although all iPhone 12 models contain more magnets than previous iPhone models, they are not expected to pose a greater risk of magnetic interference on medical devices than previous iPhone models.
Apple suggests that to avoid potential interactions with medical devices, the user should keep their iPhone and MagSafe accessories at a safe distance of preferably more than 6 inches away or more than 12 inches away if charging wirelessly. The iPhone user is also advised to consult their physician and medical device manufacturer for specific guidelines.
Manufacturers often provide recommendations on the safe use of their devices around wireless or magnetic products to prevent possible interference. If the user suspects that the iPhone or MagSafe accessories are interfering with their medical device, they should stop using their iPhone or MagSafe accessories.
