Does a neodymium magnet harm an Iphone? Answered

I tried gluing a magnet on my phone case and I experienced some problems with Compass app.Except the compass effect is it safe to use it for a longer time?


You'll break the electronic compass but other than that no harm.

What where you thinking when trying this and why do you need such a strong magnet on a phone?
Even if it is just the compass that is stuffed, strong magnets and electronics are not to be mixed.
Also consider other things near your phone like credit cards ;)

Phones are only dangerous for the credit cards that have a magnetic strip.The other wireless ones have a small antenna and a phone doesn't effect to it.Thanks for your answer.

Thanks to everyone for all answers.I glued a magnet to my phone case.I wanted to know the effects.It is a small disk magnet.

It depends how hard you hit the phone with it...
