You may have heard the saying “magnets and medical devices don’t meet”, but Apple wants to make that clear.
Macrumors, which tracks Apple news, stated that it had learned that the US company had updated
the support document for the use of the iPhone 12 and the MagSafe charger accessories.
The new recommendations provide for a safe distance between this phone and its tools on the one hand,
and the pacemaker, which is a small device placed under the skin in the chest area to help control the heartbeat.
The recommendations apply to defibrillators and other medical devices that may respond to magnets and radio waves.
The required distance, according to the new recommendations, is 6 inches (15 centimeters) between the two orders.
This development comes days after doctors said that the new phones could affect the implantation of these devices,
and in one of the tests, the approach of the phone to the defibrillator caused it to stop working.
