News Flash: Apple iPhone receives FCC approval

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
Apple Inc. on Thursday received the official go-ahead on its first ever mobile handset, as regulators for the Federal Communications Commission gave the iPod maker the green light to commence sales of the device in the United States.



According to FCC documents obtained by AppleInsider, the "GSM Cellular Telephone with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi" carries model number A1203 and FCC ID: BCGA1203.



In an SAR Test Report conducted on February 6th, 2007, FCC Test Lab Manager Lothar Schmidt wrote the following:



"The Apple Inc. A1203 GSM Cellular Telephone with Bluetooth and Wifi, FCC ID: BCGA1203, is in compliance with the limits for general population uncontrolled exposure specified in FCC 2.1093. The device was tested according to the measurement standards and procedures specified in FCC OET Bulletin 65, Supplement C (Edition 01-01) and IEEE p1528/D1.2, April 21, 2003."



Per Apple's request, the test report omitted the following for "short term" confidentiality reasons: Test Setup Photos, External Photographs, Internal Photographs, and the iPhone User Manual.



Permanent confidentiality omissions included the iPhone's Block Diagram, Operational Description, Radio Schematic, Radio Bill of Material, Radio Tune-up Procedure, and Exhibit notes.



Apple has maintained that it is on track to begin shipping iPhone in late June.



Shares of Apple rose nearly 2 percent on the news to close up $2.10 to $109.44.

    This is great news in that we can now ignore any rumors that the FCC rejected the iPhone that were no doubt going to come any day now. Glad we avoided a web swarm on that one...



    It's also nice to know that one more hurdle in the path to actually shipping the iPhone is taken care of.

    Now before the crap hits the fan, i.e., like, "Does anybody know when we can expect it to be available in Canada, UK, France, etc., and why not?" let's make it quite clear that each country has its own regulatory body which requires separate submissions, reviews and approvals. Thus the answer is, "Nobody knows!"



    Obviously, some Apple country subsiduaries have yet to submit to their respective governming bodies awaiting for the US FCC's approval first. Some countries may just rubber stamp the US rulings. In either case, "Who?" Nobody that is in the know will tell you. So why even speculate.



    In any event, this is great news for the millions of us that are just biting the bullet to get it.

    Anyone else sick of the iphone yet? Hasn't even come out yet and I'm bored. Liked it better when apple would suprise me with new, innovative things I could actually use. Too much consumer junk nowdays and quality control has taken a bit of a dive. I'll keep buying though...

    Compared to any phone I've owned, the iPhone appears to be an innovative thing I can actually use. Maybe you mean to say, "When apple would surprise me with things I could actually afford".

    Maybe you should go back and see who said it was June 11. I'm pretty sure there is no official announcement on the release date. It was just a rumored street date.

    I'm not sure if you're joking, but just in case: June 11th was never even hinted at by Apple. First they said "in June" then they clarified "late June". June 11th was speculated by some, given the opportunity to intro the device during WWDC keynote--as if it really needed a lot more keynote time.

    OK... I thought the camera was in the middle. The diagram shows it on the left (facing) side.
