Test finds iPhone 7 emitted twice the amount of radiation reported to regulators

  • Published on Aug 22, 2019
  • The Chicago Tribune spent approximately a year investigating the radiofrequency radiation emitted by cellphones. They stuck an iPhone 7, among other phones, into liquid that mimics human tissue, and found that the radiation measurement inside the tissue was well above the legal limit and twice what was reported to regulators. Apple disputes the results, saying it tests its products differently.

    I have used a 7 Plus for nearly 3 years. Keep it in the same pocket. Have been having pain on my thigh in that area and kidney pain. Should I be concerned?

      @Michael The Sociopath either you're stupid or we've encountered a language barrier (English isn't my first language), the former is more likely though, because I never blame myself for anything.

      @Michael The Sociopath _you_ learn what empirical evidence is, scientist wannabe. You can't get it over the Internet, it's what you learn by feeling it (like seeing or touching) or by carrying out an experiment. You might want to wear airpods yourself to see if you get tumours or not...
