Neither the iPhone 7 nor the iPhone 8 have a radio, says Apple

During yesterday we made a news in which some security organizations urged Apple to activate the radios of their iPhone . Well, a few hours later from Cupertino has ensured that Apple cares deeply about its users and in fact demonstrates it with the SOS emergency functions and in the iOS Health area .

But, for them it is technically impossible for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models (and their respective versions Plus) to act as a radio, since both terminals lack chips and antennas to support the signal. How can the most leading iPhone have no radio? Is Apple really interested in activating it on their phones?

With this statement shows that although they may, do not want to incorporate FM radio to iPhone . And is that technically is no challenge, especially considering that in the previous models yes that could be done. And not so old. In fact, the iPhone 6s is still in the Apple Stores.

The FCC organization has insisted these days on the importance of activating the radios to be able to transmit in cases of maximum emergency as it has suffered in the previous months with Hurricane Harvey or Inma. However, Apple assures that iOS emergency service notifications can be enabled , so that information can be obtained in any way.

To do this, users can go to Settings > Notifications and scroll through the list until you find the section "Government Alerts". Once activated, real-time weather data and AMBER alerts would arrive. And of course, if you want to listen to the radio you will always have to stream it through Apple Music or any other app.

But the mystery remains on the table: why Apple does not want to activate or deploy FM radios in their terminals?
