Reported: the US federal Communication Commission Chairman asked Apple to activate a FM radio in its iPhones for emergencies, but Apple replies on Friday that there are no FM chips in its iPhone 7 and 8 devices.

Smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Motorola, and HTC have started selling their devices with the FM tuner enabled.  That is why the FCC’s Ajit Pai asked Apple to activate the FM chips assuming that the FM chip was featured in the Apple’s iPhones. Also he added that, “it is time for Apple to step up to the plate and put the safety of the American people first.


As the Sun Sentinel of South Florida put it, and he continued saying that Do the right thing, Mr. Cook Flip the Switch. Lives depend on it.” While we are not sure whether Apple has the chip on their device or does not.

"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
