Apple iPhone 12 Magsafe
The Magsafe wireless charging system in the latest iPhone 12 can interfere with a pacemaker says the British Heath Rhythm Association.

The Apple website does mention magnetic interference with medical devices and prior consulting with a doctor and medical device manufacturers.

"Medical device manufacturers and implanting physicians should remain vigilant in making patients aware of this significant interaction of the iPhone 12 and other smart wearables with their cardiac implantable electronic devices,” says the association in its advisory notice.

In FCC filings in the US for the MagSafe charger (FCC ID: BCGA2140), it shows the puck charger is only certified to 7.5W at the Qi frequency (127.7 KHz). However, the filings show the MagSafe charger was certified to 15W watts at 360 KHz in a proprietary mode.
