Apple has a warning for those who sleep with their smartphones, especially those who sleep with their smartphones on charge.
US-based multinational company Apple has advised users not to take it with them to sleep while the iPhone is charging.
According to NDTV report, many studies have been conducted on the possible health risks of sleeping with the phone close by. Apple has warned users by bringing this issue forward.
Apple, the manufacturer of the iPhone, recently gave this warning to users.
The organization gives this warning to those who sleep with their smartphone, especially those who sleep with their smartphone charged.
This warning has also been added to Apple’s online practical guide.
According to Apple, the iPhone should be placed in a well-ventilated area. The phone should be charged on a hard and flat surface like a table.
The guidelines state that charging phones should not be placed on soft surfaces such as blankets, pillows or the body.
As mentioned in the iPhone manual, the iPhone generates heat while charging. There is a risk of burning if the heat dissipation is not proper. So it is unsafe to sleep with a blanket, pillow or phone close to the body.
The initial message for iPhone users was, ‘Don’t sleep with a device connected to a power adapter or wireless charger.’
It states that the phone cannot be placed under a blanket, pillow or body when it is in contact with electricity.
