Apple’s iPhone has received certification from the Federal Communications Commission. The application documents, made public by the FCC, include very little new information. An official Apple communication, found online with the other documents, showed the company requested items such as test setup, external, and internal photographs, as well as the User Manual to be withheld “from public viewing for forty-five days after the date certification is granted. [Today, meaning that the documents will be available July 1, presumably after the iPhone’s debut.]” The documents also revealed that the device is Apple Model No. A1203 and it received the FCC ID BCGA1203. In his January keynote address, Steve Jobs said, “We’re announcing [iPhone] today because we have to go get FCC approval. We thought it would be better to introduce this today rather than let the FCC introduce it.”
