Apple smart phone app monitor

Had my first device check yesterday and rather than getting a Medtronic bed side unit for monitoring, got set up with a Medtronic app on my Apple smart phone 14.

I have previously charged it at night downstairs, but now need to do it by my bed for Medtronic night time readings.

Since it's an iPhone 14, it charges on a round magnetic disk rather than a plug in cable. How close to my nightly sleeping position should I keep it charging on the magnetic charging disk?? 

Also, how far away from me will my phone's app pick still monitor my PM?

It should stay 6" from our device. Mine is on my headboard so just above my head and I haven't had an issue. 

The app, I'd ask them. My St Judes bedside monitor needs to be within 10' of where I sleep. The app will use bluetooth which usually means about 30' or less so anywhere in your bedroom should be ok. But confirm with them!

Interesting. I have the Android version of the Medtronic app and I wasn't told to keep the phone near me all the time. I sleep in a different room from where my phone is charging and haven't heard anything from my docs about a problem. I've had to send 2 manual transmissions and 1 auto transmission and still haven't heard that anything is wrong or lacking. Do you keep your phone next to you at all times?

You know you're wired when...

You prefer rechargeable batteries.
