Kaiann Drance, Apple's Vice President of iPhone Marketing, sat down with Rich DeMuro on the Rich On Tech Podcast (opens in new tab) to talk iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro features, the removal of the wall charger from the box, and what to expect on iPhone launch day.
When asked about MagSafe and concerns about the magnet deactivating cards that might be stored with it in your pocket, Drance did admit that certain cards could be impacted by new technology.
The executive recommended storing those types of cards in a different pocket, a wallet or purse, or in an accessory like Apple's new MagSafe Wallet as it is shielded to protect the cards stored in it.
When asked about what customers can expect on iPhone launch day this year, Drance stressed the importance ordering for contactless delivery as well as ordering ahead for in-store pickup. Confirming reports that Apple would change the way it handles its store experience this year, the executive said walk-in customers can expect delays.
The interview with Kaiann Drance covered a range of other topics including new features in the iPhone 12 as well as Apple's decision to remove the wall charger from the box.
