Back in January Apple revealed that magnets in the iPhone 12 and their MagSafe charge could affect pacemaker and that the devices should be kept away from pacemakers.
Apple has now released an updated list of devices that could have a negative impact on pacemakers and defibrillators. This is due to possible magnetic interference from these devices and accessories because they contain magnets.
The devices should be kept at least six inches away from any pacemakers and defibrillators and if any of these devices are being used in wireless charging mode then this should be at least 12 inches.
