Of course, this does not mean that the iPhones are powerful smartphones. the The upper limit of the World Health Organization (WHO) is a SAR value of 2. The Pro models of the iPhone 13 generation are still a long way from that. According to the BfS, the Motorola Edge has the highest SAR value at 1.79.
