Deception would be the only way. They know how to bend the system, and somebody at the FCC is letting them.

From your statements, you appear not to understand at all how the FCC device authorization system works.

The FCC does not test the devices, independent certification labs do. Then, the certifying documents from the labs are uploaded to the FCC OET database. If anyone were to leak info, it would have to be the labs, but their business is predicated on honoring NDAs.

In the case of Apple, the certifying documents are typically uploaded the day of a new product announcement. Trust me, I have seen this in action. For example, within minutes after the live announcement of the new iPads this fall, I watched and refreshed my FCC OET query as the database was updated with each of the new iPad models.
