[stag_intro]The iPhone is awesome and I love this gadget than anything else. But this time I could not avoid one thing I always did; enquiring what all those symbols on the backside of iPhone actually mean. [/stag_intro]Stare at the back of your iPhone and you may eventually begin to wonder if those strange symbols are the new alphabets Apple might come up with. The truth is that they are not as complicated as you might think. Here is what those symbols mean.[stag_image style=”no-filter” src=”http://www.dosed.in/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/iphone-crop.png” alignment=”none” url=””]The “FC” logo actually has a third “C,” which indicates that the iPhone is Federal Communications Commission (FCC) compliant. The FCC governs devices that use radio frequency; phones fall under their Class B banner, which mandates they not cause or receive any harmful emissions under normal use [PDF].• Next is clearly a garbage can on wheels with a very disapproving “X” laid over it. Apple is not being subtle in cautioning you not to throw the device away with the rest of your trash. The company advises owners to contact their local e-waste authority to find how best to rid themselves of the unit. This specific symbol, however, indicates WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive cooperation, a European attempt to minimize electronic waste in landfills by making it fun to type and say WEEE. In general there are e-waste bins to collect all electronic waste and dispose them accordingly.• The exclamation mark inside a circle signals a Class II wireless device, which is important for users in other countries: not all the frequency bands the device may try to use are available everywhere.• “0682” and “CE” are also European markers. The number designates who approved it (Cetecom ICT services, an accreditation firm) and “CE” (Conformite Europeenne) represents the approval of its sale in the European Union.So now you know what those symbols are telling you.
