Manufacturers of cell phones and other wireless devices are required to provide consumers with warnings about biologically harmful radiation exposure. Nevertheless, some Americans have sued Apple alleging the company did not adequately warn them about radiation exposure risks from its iPhones (see 1, 2). Of course in 2021, the company started warning consumers with medical devices to keep its iPhones and other products away from these devices (see 1, 2) and the Journal of American Heart Association chimed in on that too. Recently the company announced warnings again about interference issues and some say that’s still not enough.
From Environmental Health Trust:
Apple Warns Keep iPhone and Airpods Away From Chest Because of Electromagnetic Fields
Apple warning about potential magnetic interference with medical devices
APPLE users with medical devices have been warned to keep their consumer-electronic products at a distance because consumer-electronic devices – like the iPhone are made with magnets or components that emit electromagnetic fields.
“To avoid any potential interactions with these types of medical devices, keep your Apple product a safe distance away from your medical device (more than 6 inches / 15 cm apart or more than 12 inches / 30 cm apart if wirelessly charging). ”
Environmental Health Trust notes that what Apple should also be warning consumers about is that even if you do not have a medical device, the phone or electronic should be at a distance because of the radiofrequency radiation.
Many consumer-electronic devices contain magnets or components and radios that emit electromagnetic fields.
Magnetic interference and medical devices
Under certain conditions, magnets and electromagnetic fields might interfere with medical devices. For example, implanted pacemakers and defibrillators might contain sensors that respond to magnets and radios when in close contact. To avoid any potential interactions with these types of medical devices, keep your Apple product a safe distance away from your medical device (more than 6 inches / 15 cm apart or more than 12 inches / 30 cm apart if wirelessly charging). Consult with your physician and your medical-device manufacturer for specific guidelines.
If you suspect that your Apple product is interfering with your medical device, stop using your Apple product and consult your physician and your medical-device manufacturer.
