B of iPhone 11 detected the level of a radio emission hazardous to health

At the beginning of February, 2020 the independent laboratory RF Exposure Lab stated that iPhone 11 Pro emits the radio-frequency radiation which more than twice exceeds the limit set by the Federal commission on communication of the USA (FCC) for the radiation of radio frequencies. It can be hazardous to health.

According to the Californian laboratory RF Exposure Lab, iPhone 11 Pro shows a specific absorption coefficient of 3.8 W/kg. The limit set by regulating authority makes 1.6 W/kg. Were tested using some recommendations of FCC which assume that iPhone should be tested from distance in five millimeters, but other testing methodologies are not explained yet.

The previous iPhone models also served as a subject of a similar research and became a subject of the class action. Nevertheless, FCC held repeated testing of the specified iPhones and proved that they correspond to a framework of legislatively set regulations.

All devices tested in own laboratory FCC, but not the contractor, were characterized by the specific absorption coefficient corresponding to the maximum allowed limit in 1.6 W/kg or smaller digits. This level is 50 times lower than a limit of radiation hazardous to health therefore even the exceeding of a threshold twice revealed by independent laboratory does not pose a threat for users.

Regulatory bodies of the USA conduct 15 years researches on this question and though recognize that in a number of independent researches exceeding of legislatively set regulations was shown, any of similar results was not reproduced repeatedly. WHO notes also that because of conditions of carrying out experiences in independent laboratories it is impossible to remove completely other causes of radiation that breaks purity of an experiment.[1]

Apple disconnected a high-speed analog of Bluetooth in Russia

In December, 2019 it became known that the Ultra WideBand (UWB) technology intended for high-speed communication between devices of Apple will not work in Russia as the authorities did not permit the American company to use the corresponding frequencies. Read more here.

iPhone 11 Pro collects data on location contrary to settings

On December 4, 2019 it became known that the smartphone from Apple is convicted of activity which its owners would not approve for anything. iPhone 11 Pro periodically tries to collect data on location of users even if in settings of applications and system services function of data collection is turned off.

According to politicians of confidentiality of Apple for location-based services iPhone, the device "periodically sends to Apple location-based data of the next access points of Wi-fi and base stations (where it is supported by the device) in the anonymous and ciphered form for expansion of socially filled up database of access points Wi-Fi and base stations".

In politicians of confidentiality Apple explains how users can disconnect the services using location-based data. Nevertheless, the journalist Brian Krebs found out that in iPhone 11 Pro and, perhaps, other iPhone 11 models some system services cannot be disconnected, without having turned off at the same time the main location-based service. According to Krebs, his opening indicates existence of vulnerability in privacy protection in iPhone Pro or IOS 13, or both there and there.

In November, 2019 month Krebs sent Apple of video, showing as phone continues to collect location-based data if applications and system services in settings are forbidden to request similar information, but the main location-based service is included.

As it is specified in politicians of confidentiality of Apple when the user turns off location-based services, to the left of the indicator of battery power the diagonal up arrow appears. However, judging by video by Krebs, the device all the same periodically requests data even if system services are disconnected, and the arrow is still displayed.

We do not see in it any real threats for security. It is supposed that the icon of location-based services appears in status bar when location-based services are included. The icon is displayed for the system services which do not have the switch in settings


Opening of iPhone 11 of Pro Max

At the end of September, 2019 the iFixit company which is engaged in the fact that it makes dismantling of popular devices for the purpose of assessment of their maintainability in the same way analyzed iPhone 11. Experts made opening of the flagman iPhone 11 model of Pro Max which cost in Russia begins with 100 thousand rubles.

In iFixit noted several interesting components in phone. First, it is the accumulator of the increased size which has the L-shaped form and the additional connector. Specialists did not understand why in the battery this connector is used. It is possible that it is intended for bilateral wireless charging of AirPods earphones and the Apple Watch smartwatch. Such function, most likely, is implemented at the hardware level, but the software maker to some reasons decided to turn off it in the operating system.

According to other version, the additional connector in the accumulator can be connected with other hardware components which manage work of a battery or trace its status.

The research showed that the accumulator capacity of iPhone 11 of Pro Max for 25% exceeds like that at the iPhone Xs Max model, and the power 3% higher also is 15.04 watt-hours (3969 mAh).

According to the The Verge edition which journalists tested iPhone 11 Pro Max the tube worked without recharge about 12−14 hours while iPhone XS Max maintained from 8 to 10 hours. It is possible that battery life was increased also due to use of the A13 Bionic processor.

The LTE modem of Qualcomm company is installed in iPhone 11 Pro Max in spite of the fact that Apple conducted with it judicial proceedings and, by hearsay, was going to use chips of Intel. Amount of RAM of the smartphone is 4 Gbytes.

In iFixit estimated maintainability of iPhone 11 of Pro Max at 6 points from 10. According to experts, in the new device replacement of the display and accumulator is facilitated. But construction of a back cover still requires almost complete dismantling of the device for replacement of some component parts.[2]

In what countries of iPhone 11 is the more expensive and most cheaper

In the middle of September, 2019 the PhoneArena edition published material in which compared iPhone 11 cost in the different countries. Having considered several markets, observers counted the prices in US dollars and defined where smartphones are the more expensive and most cheaper.

The most expensive device — iPhone 11 Pro Max from 512 Gbytes of an internal memory — is most unprofitable to buy in Russia. Here the device costs 131,990 rubles that about $2053 are equivalent. The price label in the USA — $1449, i.e. are $604 less, than in the Russian Federation. In the American market 512-gigabyte iPhone 11 Pro Max left the cheapest in the world. In Russia the price is $186 higher, than in Great Britain and for $181 exceeds the price for the gadget in Italy.

The prices of iPhone 11 from 64 Gbytes and iPhone 11 Pro Max from 512 Gbytes in other countries

It should be noted that pricing on iPhone is not connected with consumer capability in the country. The cost of phone is established calculated on the basis of the weak ruble exchange rate and its volatility in relation to dollar. Partly because of a currency factor the average selling cost of iPhone grows: in 2017 it equaled $652, and in the 2018th — $793.

If to tell about the most available model of the smartphone among those which Apple provided in the fall of 2019 then iPhone 11 from 64 Gbytes of the internal memory more expensive all will be to residents of Norway — 8490 kroner or $947. The bottom price received model in Japan ($692). However, the price in Japan is specified without 8% of a tax, i.e. so many device will cost only for visitors of the foreigners who used tax free. In Russia the official price on iPhone 11 from 64 Gbytes is 59,900 rubles ($933).

According to journalists of PhoneArena, as usual, some countries will wait for week more, than others to get access to new iPhones, and thanks to features of currency rate, a value added tax or import duties at the rest of the world of the price is much higher, than in the USA.[3]
