Apple paying Qualcomm

I don't think Apple will release any statement about how much it pays Qualcomm for the components in the iPhone because if they do, users will know that the pricing of the iPhones are absurd. It's not like Apple pays extra for Qualcomm to offshore the chips in a secret factory somewhere.

It cannot hurt anyone. All iPhones are low-radiation certified phones. Although if you keep any phone on your chest every night and sleep, you'll develop heart problems easily and you will also have shorter sleep cycles, meaning you would wake up tired all the time.
