A ‘Secret Radio’ In New Macs and iPads Isn’t AM/FM


Earlier this week, The Verge offered a report with a headline that would perhaps make Jeff Smulyan stop in his tracks. “There’s a secret smart home radio in your new Mac,” it reads. For the Emmis Communications founder and CEO, getting FM chips in an iPhone was a quest that never proved successful; by fall 2018 NextRadio, which was based on smartphone activation of FM radio chips, was done.

Don’t get too excited, though. This “radio” has little to do with MHz, or kHz, reception.
