iPhone to Gain FM/AM/Satellite Radio

According to a patent application found by the footnote-loving Patently Apple, Jobs plans to integrate a radio tuner into future iPhones, which will be able to pick up satellite radio services such as Sirius XM, as well as standard AM and FM bands.

Additionally, Apple plans to make a slick visual interface for finding stations, as well as a map overlay that shows the location of nearby broadcasters. It should make finding new stations much easier, especially when traveling.

Welcome, Apple, to 1990!
