IPhone 12 magnets could interfere with pacemakers, Apple warns

Apple has updated a support document for the iPhone 12 line, stating that they may cause electromagnetic interference with medical devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators.

The company added that the iPhone and any Magsafe accessories should stay at least six inches (about 15 centimeters) from medical devices, or double the distance if the devices charge wirelessly.

Apple pointed out that all accessories (the MagSafe and MagSafe duo) contain radios and their magnets and electromagnetic fields could interfere with the devices. Although iPhone 12 models contain more magnets than any other Apple smartphone, there are no greater risks – people should still keep their phones away from medical equipment.

According to an article earlier this month, three doctors in the state of Michigan tested the interaction between an iPhone 12 and a patient’s implantable cardiovascular defibrillator: the medical device went into “suspended” mode during the test.

Doctors also said medical device manufacturers should adequately warn patients of the interaction – after all, no one can guarantee everyone is reading the iPhone Safety Information Apple has published.
