2017-11-16 I have seen several responses on the discussion stating that the iphone is not intrinsically safe; however, I have not seen an official Apple state that says such. Could someone link to where Apple has said that the iphone (or any of the other products) are not intrinsically safe?
2020-2-20 Intrinsically safe cell phones offer safe, reliable mobile communication within a classified or hazardous area. You can stay connected within Class 1 Division 1 classified hazardous areas (Zone 1/21, Div. 1 and Zone 2/22).
2021-1-8 The wide range of cases available allows the safety inspector to convert an existing mobile phone or iPad into an intrinsically safe mobile device in a matter of minutes. Once the safety inspection...

Like all intrinsically safe devices, intrinsically safe cell phones are designed to ensure that the phone cannot produce a spark or generate enough heat to ignite any potentially combustible materials in your workplace. They are designed for use in facilities where explosive material is likely to be present at least some of the time.
Engineers acknowledge the fact that the internal circuitry of such systems is not safe by itself, so they make a deliberate effort to enhance the design and prevent costly fire
Class 1 Division 2 and ATEX Zone 2 intrinsically safe iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone 4 & 5, Android (Samsung Galaxy S) and Microsoft Surface Pro cases.
400-450MHz or 450-512 MHz UHF Frequencies (UHF Version) 136-174 MHz VHF Frequencies (VHF Version) Privacy Codes. 5 Watts Transmit Power. 3 Selectable Power Levels Per Channel. In addition to the radios, any accessories used, such as microphones and headsets, need to be intrinsically safe.
The critical aspect is intrinsic safety. iPhone explosion proof cases from XCL-XCiPhone and Samsung explosion proof cases from Atexxo Manufacturing, only support ATEX zone 2, and Class1 Div2 hazardous locations.
2021-3-19 The majority of the equipment we represent used in hazardous locations is either explosion-proof or intrinsically safe.
