Exposure to Radio Frequency Energy  iPad contains radio transmitters and receivers. When
on, iPad sends and receives radio frequency (RF) energy through its antenna. The Wi-Fi and
Bluetooth® antennas are located behind the Apple logo. iPad has been tested and meets the
SAR exposure requirements for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth operation. A cellular antenna is located
at the top edge of iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, opposite the Home button at the bottom. For optimal
mobile device performance and so that human exposure to RF energy does not exceed the
FCC, IC, and European Union guidelines, always follow these instructions and precautions:
Orient the device with the cellular antenna (located under the black edge at the top of the
device) away from your body or other objects. iPad is designed and manufactured to comply
with the limits for exposure to RF energy set by the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) of the United States, Industry Canada (IC) of Canada, and regulating entities of Japan,
the European Union, and other countries. The exposure standard employs a unit of
measurement known as the specific absorption rate, or SAR. The SAR limit applicable to iPad
set by the FCC is 1.6 watts per kilogram (W/kg), 1.6 W/kg by Industry Canada, and 2.0 W/kg
by the Council of the European Union. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating
positions specified by these agencies, with iPad transmitting at its highest certified power
level in all tested frequency bands. Although SAR is determined at the highest certified
power level in each frequency band, the actual SAR level of iPad while in operation can be
well below the maximum value because iPad adjusts its cellular transmitting power based in
part on orientation and proximity to the wireless network. In general, the closer you are to a
cellular base station, the lower the cellular transmitting power level. iPad has been tested,1
and meets the FCC, IC, and European Union RF exposure guidelines for cellular operation.
When tested at direct body contact, iPad’s maximum SAR value for each frequency band is

Radio signals iPad uses radio signals to connect to wireless networks. For information about
the amount of power used to transmit these signals, and about steps you can take to
minimize exposure, see Settings > General > About > Legal > RF Exposure.
Radio frequency interference Observe signs and notices that prohibit or restrict the use of
mobile devices (for example, in healthcare facilities or blasting areas). Although iPad is
designed, tested, and manufactured to comply with regulations governing radio frequency
emissions, such emissions from iPad can negatively affect the operation of other electronic
equipment, causing them to malfunction. Turn off iPad or use Airplane Mode to turn off the
iPad wireless transmitters when use is prohibited, such as while traveling in aircraft, or when
asked to do so by authorities.
