The FM radio saga between the National Association of Broadcasters, the US FCC and Apple continues. A few weeks ago, the FCC called on Apple to activate FM radio functionality in its iPhone devices, while Apple said that is not possible simply because the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 “do not have FM radio chips” and antennas that would support FM signals.

Now, the National Association of Broadcasters on Wednesday issued a statement basically saying Apple is lying.

According to a series of teardowns, the new iPhones still come with the same 4357 chip family, which ships with an integrated FM radio chip according to Broadcom information, meaning “Apple deliberately disabled FM” functionality.
