No, xray machines are used at airports and you have to put your phone along with your other belongings through the machine. I think its perfectly safe.

Airport X-ray machines emit such a low level of radiation that there is very little danger to humans or objects.

That being said, the last time I went through the X-ray machine at the airport, my weenie fell off. :)

Important safety tip... :)

Along with not microwaving Corndogs. My wife caught our Microwave on fire the other day with one.

Warning. When I was of grade school age, my folks used to take me to those shoe stores that had machines to x-ray your feet to show how well the new shoes fit. Now, decades later, I walk around wearing size 15 shoes.

You have been warned ... ;)

Maybe you should buy smaller shoes...

I always remember the line from an older fellow in the same office at my first summer job. "Gee, you'd be a lot taller if so much of you weren't folded over ...." :D

No xray has no effect on the iPhone. I'm a computer tech and used to xray my old iPhone all the time to test xray sensors for doctors. lol
