Apple won’t activate FM chip in iPhones: It doesn’t take a Rhodes Scholar to detect a Road Apple.

With their cell phone networks still in disarray, Puerto Ricans can find comfort in knowing that Apple really cares about their User Experience.

In a widely distributed statement confirming that FM radio chips can be found only in iPhone 6 models and older versions of the iPhone, Apple noted, “Apple cares deeply about the safety of our users, especially during times of crisis and that’s why we have engineered modern safety solutions into our products. Users can dial emergency services and access Medical ID card information directly from the Lock Screen, and we enable government emergency notifications, ranging from Weather Advisories to AMBER alerts.”

Most cell phone manufacturers are now producing smartphones with activated FM chips.

Thursday, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called on Apple to end their iPhone radio embargo.
