iPhone X finally authorized by the FCC!

The iPhone X Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measurements have finally been updated by Apple on its official website, and the message displayed pertaining to non-approval for FCC SAR compliance has been removed.

Apple waited until last minute to inform the public on thermal simulations representing how much microwave radiation is absorbed into your body and converted into heat.  SAR levels are important safety indicator that informs an iPhone X user how much radio frequency radiation their body is absorbing when the 10th anniversary iPhone users’ phone is operating at maximum RF power levels.  RF Safe needs to be on record that SAR testing is not an adequate testing measure to ensure your safety from exposure to RF Radiation — as MANY studies do support non-thermal hazards to microwave exposure.

The SAR values listed below are for the spectrum licensed to cell phone carriers (i.e., PCE). Apple lists slightly higher values on its website for the head and body which represent cell phone communications using unlicensed spectrum (i.e., NII). Note that Apple does not report on its website the SARs in hotspot mode or for simultaneous transmission of cellular and Wi-Fi.

It is VERY important to note the minimum separation distance for body-worn testing is 5 mm (about two-tenths of an inch).  You must at all times have this amount of distance between your body and phone when in operation to comply with regulatory safety values below!
