You may feel like you’re always on your iPhone, but there are a few times when you should put it down, according to Apple.

The cautions may be found on Apple’s Support page, which you should read before using your iPhone.

Body pain

Injury might happen by using a gadget for an extended period of time and performing the same behaviours repeatedly.

According to Apple: “When you perform repetitive activities such as typing, swiping, or playing games on iPhone, you may experience discomfort in your hands, arms, wrists, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body.

“If you experience discomfort, stop using your iPhone and consult a physician.”

Repetitive strange injury is fairly frequent, and if you’re lucky, it can heal in a few weeks.

Medical device interference

Apple also warns against using its technology near any medical instruments that may be harmed by iPhone.

Its iPhones and MagSafe accessories include magnets and can create electromagnetic fields that can interfere with pacemakers and defibrillators, among other equipment.

Apple says: “Consult your physician and medical device manufacturer for information specific to your medical device and whether you need to maintain a safe distance of separation between your medical device and iPhone and MagSafe accessories.

“Manufacturers often provide recommendations on the safe use of their devices around wireless or magnetic products to prevent possible interference.

“If you suspect iPhone and MagSafe accessories are interfering with your medical device, stop using these products.”

Apple also emphasises that your iPhone is not a medical gadget in and of itself, and that you should not use it to diagnose or treat yourself.
