Despite the fact that Apple announced the lack of chips for FM radio in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, the national association of broadcasters of the United States and iPhone壁紙
of Japan still insists on its own and asks the company to add the appropriate module to the new generation of iPhone.
In their blog, representatives of the association refer to the analysis of the iPhone 8, where the Broadcom chip is installed with the integrated "core" FM radio. In other words, Apple devices already have the necessary foundation for activating the the radio, the company will only need to install an additional antenna and a pair of accessories.
In Cupertino, these requirements are cautious because they do not see the need for FM radio support in the iPhone. Now the company is working on how to fit modern "stuffing" in a small building, and the presence of unnecessary parts can seriously complicate the task of engineers.
Now on many popular smartphone models in the US, an FM module is activated, but Apple and some other companies refuse to turn on the receiver in their devices. Earlier, the cellular operators AT & T, Sprint, Blu and T-Mobile expressed their consent to activate the module. According to NAVK, radio support is necessary for timely informing the population about emergency situations.
