President Obama today signed the E-Label act, thereby making it a law. The E-Label act states that most of the FCC related logos displayed on the back of a consumer device can be displayed electronically instead of being physically printed on the back.

This means that future smartphones, including the next-generation iPhone, could ship without any logos in the back — giving them a cleaner look. However, companies will be required to display these logos three level deep inside the Settings menu, and must indicate where they could be find in the user manual. This move will also save manufacturers some dough that they had to usually spend on getting these logos printed on their devices.

Nonetheless, the CE logo, which is also found at the back of nearly all consumer devices, will still remain because it is governed by the EU laws. Hopefully, the EU will take a hint from the E-Label act and completely do away with logos found on the back of consumer devices.
