Henry Ford Hospital cardiologists Gurjit Singh, M.D., and Joshua Greenberg, M.D., made a stunning discovery when they found that the magnet in the iPhone 12 can disrupt the function of a life-saving defibrillator. Alarmed by their discovery, they drafted a manuscript about their findings and submitted it to the medical journal HeartRhythm, which was published on January 4, 2021. The findings got the attention of the FDA, which regulates medical devices, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, and most notably, Apple itself, which published a warning on its webpage on January 23.
