Here’s a table with the SAR levels, ranks, and percentages of the limit for each test for the Apple iPhone XS MAX:

 

 

Apple iPhone XS MAX SAR Levels

Test SAR Level (W/kg) Rank % of Limit
Head SAR Level 1.16 67 72.50
Body SAR Level 1.17 68 73.13
Simultaneous Head SAR 1.39 34 86.88
Simultaneous Body SAR 1.52 49 95.00
Hotspot SAR Level 1.17 51 73.13
Simultaneous Hotspot SAR 1.52 36 95.00

The RF Safe Score (RSS) algorithm can be mathematically expressed as follows:

RSS = ∑ (-5.5 * [SARi/1.6 – 0.5] * [SARi/1.6 > 0.5]) for i = 1 to n

Where SARi is the Specific Absorption Rate of the i-th test, and n is the total number of tests. This equation calculates the negative point value assigned to each threshold surpassed in proportion to the specific absorption rate of each test, taking into account the legal limit established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) of 1.6 W/kg.

Using the SAR values for the Apple iPhone Xs Max provided for the example. We can calculate the RF Safe Score (RSS) using the algorithm provided. The SAR values for the Head, Body, and Hotspot are 1.16 W/kg, 1.17 W/kg, and 1.17 W/kg, respectively. The simultaneous transmission SAR values for (cellular plus Wi-Fi) are 1.39 W/kg at the head, 1.52 W/kg when worn on the body, and 1.52 W/kg when used as a hotspot simultaneously with other transmitters active.

First, we will calculate the percentage of the legal limit (1.6 W/kg) that each SAR value represents:

Head SAR = 1.16 W/kg = 73% of the legal limit

Body SAR = 1.17 W/kg = 73% of the legal limit

Hotspot SAR = 1.17 W/kg = 73% of the legal limit

Simultaneous Head SAR = 1.39 W/kg = 87% of the legal limit

Simultaneous Body SAR = 1.52 W/kg = 95% of the legal limit

Simultaneous Hotspot SAR = 1.52 W/kg = 95% of the legal limit

Next, we will apply the step function (-5.5 * [SARi/1.6 – 0.5] * [SARi/1.6 > 0.5]) for each SAR value:

Head SAR = (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -5.5

Body SAR = (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -5.5

Hotspot SAR = (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -5.5

Simultaneous Head SAR = (-5.5 * [87/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -5.5

Simultaneous Body SAR = (-5.5 * [95/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -16.5

Simultaneous Hotspot SAR = (-5.5 * [95/100 – 0.5] * 1) = -16.5

Finally, we will add up the results for all the SAR values to get the overall RF Safe Score (RSS)

RSS = -5.5 + -5.5 + -5.5 + -5.5 + -16.5 + -16.5 = -59

So the final RF Safe Score (RSS) for the Apple iPhone Xs Max is -59, indicating a higher potential risk from cell phone usage over a lifetime than we’d like to see.

We can do this in a single equation written like this to get the RSS (RF Safe Score):

RSS = (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5]) * [73/100 > 0.5] + (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5]) * [73/100 > 0.5] + (-5.5 * [73/100 – 0.5]) * [73/100 > 0.5] + (-5.5 * [87/100 – 0.5]) * [87/100 > 0.5] + (-5.5 * [95/100 – 0.5]) * [95/100 > 0.5] + (-5.5 * [95/100 – 0.5]) * [95/100 > 0.5] = -59 (Raw Number)

In this equation, the SAR values for the head, body, hotspot, simultaneous head, simultaneous body, and simultaneous hotspot are used. It calculates the percentage of the legal limit for each SAR value, applies the step function (-5.5 * [SARi/1.6 – 0.5]) * [SARi/1.6 > 0.5]) for each SAR value, and then sums up the results for all the SAR values to get the overall RF Safe Score (RSS).

It’s important to note that this equation assumes the legal limit is 1.6 W/kg.

Please note again, the legal limit of 1.6 W/kg refers to the limit established by the FCC, SAR standard may vary globally and it’s important to check with the specific authorities for the information that applies to your location.

Please note the table is an estimation based on the information provided and the legal limit of 1.6 W/kg, that refers to the maximum limit accepted by the FCC, this may be different depending on the country where you are located, also SAR standards may vary globally.

According to test reports filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) for the Apple iPhone XS MAX is 1.16 watts per kilogram (w/kg) at your head, and 1.17 w/kg when worn on your body. The Apple iPhone XS MAX hotspot SAR is 1.17 W/kg. The SAR for simultaneous transmission (cellular, Wi-Fi ) for the Apple iPhone XS MAX is 1.518 W/kg when used as a hotspot simultaneously with all other transmitters active.

All SAR levels reported for the Apple iPhone XS MAX to the FCC are averaged over one gram of body tissue corresponding to the maximum allowable level of 1.6 w/kg. The SAR levels will vary depending upon your specific cell phone carrier (e.g., AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon).

The Apple iPhone XS MAX minimum separation distance for body-worn and head testing was 5 mm (about two-tenths of an inch), that requires a smartphone user to maintain this minimum distance for SAR safety compliance.

Apple iPhone XS MAX compliance for body-worn operating configurations is limited to the specific configurations tested for this filing.  Body-worn operations are restricted to belt-clips, holsters or similar accessories that have no metallic component in the assembly and must provide at least 5 mm separation between the device and the user’s body.  End-users must be informed of the body-worn operating requirements for satisfying RF exposure compliance.

It is VERY important to note the minimum separation distance for head and 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 iPhone XS MAX when in operation to comply with regulatory safety values!

The highest reported Apple iPhone XS MAX levels for the head, body-worn accessory for simultaneous transmission use conditions are 1.392 W/kg and 1.518 W/kg respectively.

Simultaneous Transmission Note(s):
1. Wi-Fi 2.4GHz & Bluetooth cannot transmit simultaneously.
2. Wi-Fi 2.4GHz &Wi-Fi 5GHz cannot transmit simultaneously.
3. WWAN ANT1, ANT2, ANT3,and ANT4 cannot transmit simultaneously
