Is the ipad mini smart cover safe for people with pacemakers because of magnet strength?

If the magnet strength is too strong for people with pacemakers, is there another cover?

  • Ask your doctor.

    Seriously, don't take any medical advice from anyone online. Not even me.

  • I have no idea how strong the magnets are on the case. Pacemakers are often made of titanium now. You can always ask your physician or contact the manufacturer of the pacemaker to be sure. One company, Medtronic, suggests that the magnets be kept 6" or more away from the device.

    Google and find the Medtronic site. They have patient information on magnet safety. The forum here won't let me post a link.
