FCC investigates iPhone 7

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is now investigating Apple’s iPhone 7 which tests have shown to be emitting radiofrequency radiation above the legal limit.

In the test where the iPhone was set to operate at full power and was secured to a tub of clear liquid which mimics human tissue, it was concluded that the radiation was over the legal safety limit and more than double what Apple had reported to the FCC regulators from its own testing.

The test was conducted by The Chicago Tribune inside an accredited lab which followed federal guidelines.

Apple is disputing the Tribune’s results stating the lab does not conduct the tests the same way as their facility but does not specify what the difference or what was wrong with the tests.
