Its MagSafe technology could interfere with medical devices.

Apple has released a warning to users of their latest flagship, the iPhone 12. The tech giant has urged users to keep their devices at least 15cm away from medical devices, like pacemakers. This is because their new MagSafe technology could potentially interfere with medically implanted devices. Several doctors have also said that the MagSafe accessory could even interrupt devices like pacemakers, which could have dire consequences for patients. MagSafe allows iPhone users to charge their phones wirelessly and to use new creations like magnet wallets and card holders.
