The Apple iPhone 11 has been tested for its radiation levels by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and has been assigned SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) levels. The SAR levels are measured in watts per kilogram (W/kg) and indicate the amount of radiation that is absorbed by the body.
FCC Approval Date: 26 July 2019 FCC ID: BCG-E3309A
The Apple iPhone 11 has the following SAR levels:
- Head SAR level: 1.14 W/kg, ranked #59 out of all tested devices (71.25% of the legal limit)
- Body SAR level: 1.14 W/kg, ranked #56 out of all tested devices (71.25% of the legal limit)
- Simultaneous Head SAR: 1.41 W/kg, ranked #40 out of all tested devices (88.13% of the legal limit)
- Simultaneous Body SAR: 1.52 W/kg, ranked #49 out of all tested devices (95.00% of the legal limit)
- Hotspot SAR level: 1.17 W/kg, ranked #51 out of all tested devices (73.13% of the legal limit)
- Simultaneous Hotspot SAR: 1.52 W/kg, ranked #36 out of all tested devices (95.00% of the legal limit)
It’s worth noting that The legal limit for SAR levels in the USA is 1.6 W/kg. Therefore, the Apple iPhone 11 has SAR levels that are below the legal limit but still, it has higher levels for some cases of simultaneous use. It’s recommended to be aware of the radiation levels, if you’re concerned about exposure, you can use a case that is specifically designed to reduce radiation exposure such as RF Safe® iPhone 11 QuantaCase™ RFS1 .
SAR level, the SAR rank and the percentage of the legal limit for each SAR test:
|SAR Test||SAR Level (W/kg)||SAR Rank||% of Legal Limit|
|Simultaneous Head SAR||1.41||40||88.13|
|Simultaneous Body SAR||1.52||49||95.00|
|Simultaneous Hotspot SAR||1.52||36||95.00|
Please note that the legal limit for SAR levels in the USA is 1.6 W/kg. All above figures are for the FCC test.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 is a protective phone case for the iPhone 11 that incorporates RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology to deflect electromagnetic radiation, including 5G frequencies, away from the user’s body. It also features a built-in RFID-blocking wallet and can be converted into a phone viewing stand. The conductive shielding fabric inside the case is accessible for easy testing with an inexpensive Ohm meter. The case offers protection from cracks, dings, and scratches, and is designed to reduce exposure to cell phone radiation while still allowing the phone’s signal to enter and exit the back of the phone. When closed, the case deflects the most intense line of sight radiation away from the user’s body and can be folded behind the phone for texting.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 is designed to reduce exposure to cell phone radiation in a stylish and discreet way. It offers a layer of RF radiation protection where it is most needed, by deflecting the most intense microwave radiation from smartphone devices away from the user. The case uses specially placed materials that are transparent to microwave radiation and deflect it away from the body. This is particularly important when a phone is used with a hands-free device, or when carried in a pocket as radiant energy is absorbed much faster by organs such as the liver, kidneys, or reproductive organs, which have no bone protection like the brain does.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 provides a level of protection and peace of mind for users who are concerned about their exposure to radiation from smartphones. The RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology used in the case has been lab-tested to ensure that it is effective in reducing radiation exposure. Additionally, the RF Safe® notch in the case allows for easy conductivity testing, giving users the ability to verify the effectiveness of the shielding materials. The case also provides additional benefits such as RFID theft protection for credit cards, room keys or other RFID remote access cards and an adjustable angle stand for watching videos on the phone.
Here’s how to use it:
- Place your iPhone 11 in the case: Simply snap your iPhone 11 into the case, making sure that the phone is securely in place.
- Close the radiation shielding front flap: After taking or making a phone call, close the flap to deflect radiation away from your body. The microphone and speaker are still fully functional for private calls, but it is recommended to use the speakerphone option wherever possible.
- When storing in your pocket: Face the front flap towards your body to deflect the most intense line of sight radiation away from your body.
- When texting: The flap can be folded behind the phone to shield the back of the device while held in your hand for texting. This is because front of the device is typically at a “safe” distance from the body under this condition.
- Use the RFID Blocking Wallet: The built-in card slot provides RFID theft protection for a credit card, room key, or any RFID remote access card when the case is closed.
- Convert into a stand: Easily convert your QuantaCase™ RFS1 into a stand for watching videos by adjusting the angle of the flap.
It is also highly recommended that you can test the conductivity of the microwave barrier inside the case by using an inexpensive Ohm meter via the exposed RF Safe® notch, that way, you can be sure of how much your radiation is shielded.
By following these steps, you can use your iPhone 11 safely and comfortably, knowing that you have reduced your exposure to radiation while still allowing the phone’s signal to enter and exit the back of the phone.
The QuantaCase™ RFS1 phone case uses RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology to deflect electromagnetic radiation, including 5G frequencies, away from the user’s body. This technology utilizes conductive materials such as metallic fabrics, metals like copper and aluminum, and metallized film to create a barrier between the phone and the user’s body that reflects radiation away from the body.
The principle behind this technology is based on the concept of electromagnetic shielding. Electromagnetic shielding refers to the practice of reducing the electromagnetic field (EMF) in a space by blocking the field with barriers made of conductive or magnetic materials. In the case of the QuantaCase™ RFS1, the conductive materials used in the construction of the case act as a barrier to electromagnetic radiation, reflecting it away from the user’s body.
The effectiveness of the shielding materials is dependent on the conductivity of the materials and their ability to block the specific frequencies of radiation that the user is trying to protect against. The RF Safe® Radiation Shielding Technology used in the QuantaCase™ RFS1 has been lab-tested to ensure that it is effective in reducing radiation exposure, which is the key of how this phone case deflects radiation.
It’s worth noting that the phone case itself doesn’t cancel radiation completely, but it helps to reduce the amount of radiation absorbed in your head and body.
Materials Used for Electromagnetic Radiation Shielding
RF Shielded fabric is made from polyester filaments woven with a blend of micro-fine conductive threads. The shielding fabric is combined with a proprietary process for deflecting potentially harmful radiation.
RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 Shielding Mesh is visible inside the earpiece speaker hole, which allows the metal alloys used in the RF shielding to be tested for conductivity. Conductive adhesive layer the shielding mesh seamlessly in full compliance with EU Nickel Directive 94/27/EC.
Designed to deflect radiation from iPhone 11 smartphones
The RF Safe QuantaCase™ RFS1 only incorporates shielding mechanisms that utilize deflection. Absorption (attenuation) is never used to prevent affecting the iPhone 11 software regulating RF power output. RF Safe only uses absorption technologies on wires (Ferrite Beads), such as on an air-tube headset plugged into your iPhone.
How QuantaCase™ RFS1 Electromagnetic Radiation Shielding Works
Electromagnetic radiation consists of coupled electric and magnetic fields. The electric field produces forces on the charge carriers (i.e., electrons) within the conductor. As soon as an electric field is applied to the surface of an ideal conductor, it induces a current that causes charge displacement inside the conductor that cancels the applied field inside, at which point the current stops.
Varying magnetic fields generate eddy currents that repel the applied magnetic fields. The result is that electromagnetic radiation is reflected from the conductor’s surface.
QuantaCase™ RFS1 deflects Apple iPhone 11 radiation, as shown in the illustration. By simply keeping the shielded flip cover between your body and device, whether used to your ear or carried in your pocket – you have the shielding you need to cover the entire front of the phone to deflect potentially harmful excess radiation.
