I just wish I could get some really good data on whether or not magnets in the 12 series are going to be safe near the body for long periods. I mean after all, holding a phone close to your ear while on call puts the magnets very close to inner ear and the eyes. I don’t want to sound like an alarmist but I think about things like this. Neodymium type magnets are the strongest type it appears. Just not thrilled with having MagSafe yet.
I’m loving my 12 mini despite this fact.

loopless said:This “right to repair” issue is a made up issue pushed by a vocal minority of users. Does any really expect something as sophisticated as a modern iPhone to be repairable by some nerd with a soldering iron? That ship has sailed.

This will run quite a few companies out of business as few of them can afford to take on this additional expense in the none Apple world because they are already loosing money on these devices.
You're exaggerating. Just because people are given the right to repair their iPhones, does not mean that everybody will start doing so. People have to buy tools and have the knowledge. From what I've noticed, people who don't know how to repair phones don't even bother with it and just have professionals repair it for them.
This is perfect for those whose car has wired CarPlay. Your phone will be plugged in and charging anyways.
