Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure from Apple iPhone 6
Thanks to Serko A for point out the RF numbers for iPhone 6:
In iPhone 6 SAR Nearly Exceeds Legal Radiation Limits for Simultaneous Rating, it is pointed out that the iPhone 6 and 6 Pluys
Like most cell phones, both new iPhone 6 models have several transmitters that can simultaneously emit microwave radiation, which include Cellular, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth radiation. When all these transmitters are turned on, the iPhone 6 SAR value is 1.58 W/kg and for the iPhone 6 Plus SAR it’s 1.59 W/kg. These levels are very close to the legal limit which is 1.60 W/kg.
Twenty years from now, will there be more cancers from the heavy cell phone use among today’s users? I’m unclear on whether any hard evidence of harm exists (in an epidemiological sense and subject to peer review and repeat studies confirming it).
Perhaps only time will tell. Still, it does seem like a good idea to limit exposure. And yet when I’m out and about, the phone goes into my pocket (<1mm of separation vs 5mm for the Apple test numbers), and when I’m talking it’s against my head.
