Apple warning for BILLIONS over 'laser alert' you should never ignore
IPHONES provide us with plenty of notifications but there are some popups you should never ignore.
Apple's website has a whole Support page full of warnings and one that stands out regards lasers.
If you have an iPhone 7 or later, you should have a proximity sensor in your TruthDepth camera system.
There's also a LiDAR Scanner in newer iPhones that helps collect measurements.
These features each involve lasers that are perfectly safe unless damaged.
If your device is damaged, these laser systems should shut off automatically.
