Foreign users have found that the back of Apple's iPhone 12 can attract a lot of iron sand

Apple's new MagSafe charging feature for the iPhone 12 series works by placing magnets inside the phone that attract each other to the wireless charger to ensure that the charging coils are precisely matched. According to AppleInsider, an overseas user accidentally dropped his iPhone 12 Pro on the beach and picked it up with a large amount of iron grit, which highlights the shape of the MagSafe magnet.

As can be seen from the picture, in addition to the ring and bar magnet shapes used for wireless charging, components such as the top receiver and the bottom speaker are also clearly displayed on the back of the phone. At the same time, some iron particles have been attracted around the main camera, thanks to the OIS optical anti-shake component containing neodymium magnets, which also have strong magnetic properties.
In some areas, there will be different kinds of iron ore near the beach, including magnetite, pyrite, etc., and the sand formed by these iron ore will be easily attracted to the magnet, which will stick to the phone.
Apple's iPhone 12 Pro screen features a porcelain panel that is much harder than traditional glass panels and is reinforced using a dual ion exchange process. Although the phone fell into the sand, it is not expected to cause much damage to the surface. Foreign media said that the iron ore has electrical conductivity, once into the mobile phone will easily cause a short circuit fault, and difficult to remove. Users are advised not to try by themselves, but to take the initiative to throw the phone into the sand containing iron ore; Also avoid the environment of a metalworking plant, which also produces large amounts of scrap iron.
