Significantly, repair manuals indicate that the WiFi/Bluetooth module includes a hardware “RFKILL” pin. Apple leaves this pin unconnected and very difficult to access through mods, but if phone vendors wanted to support efforts like this, future revisions of phones could break such pins out to offer a more graceful defeat that doesn’t require rebooting the phone or leave a measurable signature while disabling these radios
Can you be more precise about what you mean by ‘phone vendors’? Would skilled enough technicians be capable of this mod, or does it need to happen at a factory level?
