iPad Pro/IPad Air

  I know there are a lot of smart ppl on here and I am hoping someone can help me. I got a new IPad Pro 6 months ago and noticed no effects from the magnets involved with the device or the case at all. Then I got a new IPad Air a week ago and when I use it I feel light headed. I have an iPhone 12 Pro phone and that has never effected me. 
  I want to try to make the IPad Air work, does anyone know of a company that makes good IPad Air cases that do not have magnets or ones that might shield from magnets? Thank you

IPad Air case

I have an iPad Air and bought a Speck case. It has a clasp closure no magnet. I have never had an issue with it. I also have a smart watch but since my PM implant I can no longer get an ECG reading. I hope you find a suitable case. I believe I bought mine from Amazon. 

no worries

the magnets that hold a device case closed are not strong enough to mess with the pacer. these are on par with cheap fridge magnets.  But that does not mean you should put them right on your body over the device.   the strength goes down by the square of the radius, so 4 inches away is 16 times less strong than 1 inch away.  Why you often hear folks say keep things 6 inches away or more.   

The fear is not putting the device in magnet mode, that just fixes your rate at one speed, no big deal.  I believe the concern is getting stuck in magnet mode and being stuck at that fixed rate.  

Our lives are filled with magnets and magnetic fields, im 34 years with pacers no, no issues nor worries about them in my experience...
