Watch out for the iPhone 12 – Dr Malik Explains

Dr Malik says:

Watch out for the iPhone 12. It has a circular magnet that might deactivate your implantable defibrillator.

This article says it can happen- if the phone is over the device- which is usually under the skin by our left shoulder.

Some FitBits and other devices have been described to do the same.

If you have a pacemaker or ICD, consult your Cardiologist before buying the latest – or at least keep the thing well away from your chest!
