A video of a woman pouring dog spray on her iPhone went viral on social media. You can find it on Facebook, TikTok, Threads, and other sites for the wonder of a magic trick that claims that a black dog with a pms mineral, such as magnetite, sticks to a phone fitted with magnets.
iPhones have been using the MagSafe magnet system since 2020, and it is primarily a function of sticking the wireless charger to the right place to charge optimally. In the same way, you can also attach accessories like a foam bank, a power bank, or you can attach your mobile phone to the handle of your car in this way. Android manufacturers are also looking for a magnetic system.
Good luck getting sand out of the camera…

Every day that magic trick is simply nothing but ordinary physics with magnets and other objects with magnetic properties. Although the dog nicely reflects the circular shape of the MagSafe system, otherwise there is nothing surprising about it.
By the way, iPhones do have an IP68 degree of protection, i.e. resistance against dust and water, which therefore also includes dog, so there should be no risk of damage to the internal components when it is dropped on the mobile phone, but nothing is completely without the risk of such a possibility. On the one hand, you can scratch the optics of the camera and the display of the phone with small streams of minerals, but then you will know and damage the USB-C port. And that wouldn’t be a cheap thing in the service.
