New iPhone 3G S mini-jack input

iPhone users have been suffering from Apple’s decisions regarding the headset connector on the terminal. While in the first generation the iPhone was beaten in this respect by not being able to connect most headsets on the market, on the iPhone 3G the handset was modified by lifting the connector and it was possible to use any headset without the need for cumbersome additions.

The new connector on the iPhone 3G S (and iPod Touch 2.0) changes to capture the new features of the new Apple Earphones. New volume buttons have been added to the microphone and call button play control, and the iPhone 3GS is able to recognize its signal . It appears that future buyers of the iPhone 3G S will have these new headsets included as standard with the handset.

In the documents sent by Apple to the American FCC, we can also see that the new iPhone reduces the levels of radiation transmitted to our bodies while using the terminal. On transmission frequencies between 1850-1910 and 2400-2483.5 MHz we can see that the radiation levels in the body and head decrease considerably compared to the iPhone 3G. It appears that Apple’s intentions to make devices more environmentally friendly are not focused solely on their composition and packaging. iLoungeImagen
