FCC tests confirm Apple iPhone meets U.S. radiation limits

After a series of tests on smartphones, the Federal Communications Commission confirmed that Apple’s iPhone met U.S. radio frequency radiation exposure standards. In August, the Chicago Tribune cited test results from an independent lab that some of the company’s models had radio radio radiation that exceeded the safety limits. RF Exposure Lab noted that the iPhone 7 exceeded the FCC’s limits for personal exposure to radiation, which regulators promised to evaluate.

Between August 30 and September 23, the FCC purchased devices from Apple, Samsung and others and conducted thorough testing in its own labs instead of handing them over to contractors.

It was found that all RF radiation exposures in the equipment on sale were below the legal lying limit of 1.6 w / kg. It should be noted that this value is only 1/50 of the upper limit of the safety regulations.

Previously, the test results of an agency commissioned bymedia were between 2.5 and 2.81 w / kg, well above the legally permissible exposure limit. Apple was skeptical at the time and said in a statement that the test evaluation process and results of the test were inaccurate.

“All models are fully certified by the FCC and other iPhone sales markets to ensure compliance with and compliance with all applicable radiation exposure guidelines and limits,” the company said.
