Although acknowledged by Apple already, Apple has updated its support documentation about how MagSafe accessories might affect medical implants like defibrillators and pacemakers. MagSafe has been a feature in the new iPhone 12 Series. For starters, MagSafe on iPhone is a special set of magnets that help attach accessories and chargers magnetically.
Even though Apple never really denied that the magnets can interfere, it earlier said that they do not pose a greater risk than other iPhone models without MagSafe.
Although all iPhone 12 models contain more magnets than previous iPhone models, they are not expected to present a greater risk of magnetic interference with medical devices than previous iPhone models.via 9to5Mac
After the report, Apple has added a bit more clarity in its support document regarding this issue.
Medical devices such as implanted pacemakers and defibrillators might contain sensors that respond to magnets and radios when in close contact. To avoid any potential interactions with these devices, keep your iPhone and MagSafe accessories a safe distance away from your device (more than 6 inches / 15 cm apart or more than 12 inches / 30 cm apart if wirelessly charging).Apple
Apple also makes it clear that anyone having a medical device and MagSafe accessories should also consult their physician and medical device manufacturer as well.
