    "This chipset also offers FM support, but Apple has displayed zero interest in FM historically, and there are no signs of that trend changing."

    So yes, it does have an FM chip

    Have you heard of anyone doing anything with the FM functionality with the Chip? None of us have. If no one has heard of it, nothing is happening. If you want something to happen, ask the developers out there to do something. Pitch it to them. Make it seem feasible, viable, make it worth their time. Radio isn't really the most needed or listened to thing anymore, with the Internet being the way it is right now.

    And not many people listen to the Radio either when all the music they want is in their little device. You control your own playlist. You are not at the mercy of the DJ and what they play.

    that's pretty interesting, if developers can get access to this it would create great opportunities for apps.
