Whereas body radiation is the reading that comes out when the phone is normally kept in a pocket. Keep in mind that both of these readings should be less than 1.6 W/kg (watt/kg).

The screen to see the radiation readings in different smartphones may be different. In some mobiles only abstract value is given, but that too should be less than 1.6 watts/kg.

– If your phone’s summary value or reading exceeds 1.6 watts/kg, replace your phone immediately.

– Go to the phone’s settings. Here you will get the option of General. Click it. Click about here. You will see the model written. Clicking here will let you know the model number of your iPhone. take care of it.

Now you will see Legal written below in About. After clicking on these, you click on RF Exposure. Now you will see a lot written. Scroll up the mobile screen.
