Apple just schooled the FCC on iPhones
The Federal Communications Commission, the body that certifies mobile devices before they can hit stores, issued a strange statement on Thursday that seems to indicate its leadership has no idea how some of these devices operate.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai asked Apple to activate the FM chips inside iPhone so that victims of national disasters have access to information when cellular service is down. Apple responded, schooling the FCC on how its iPhones are built, and why activating something that doesn’t exist isn’t possible.
