Apple to Update iPhone 12 Software Following Ban in France

Apple Corporation has notified regulatory authorities in France that it will issue a software update for iPhone 12 users in that country to address concerns about excessive electromagnetic radiation levels associated with the phone model.

As readers may recall, France’s National Frequency Agency (Agence Nationale des Frequencies, or ANFR) ordered Apple in early September to temporarily withdraw its model iPhone 12 from the French market due to concerns about the device exceeding the regulatory specific absorption rate (SAR) limits established by the Commission of the European Union (EU).

According to an article posted in mid-September to the website of the Associated Press (AP), Apple claims that the problem raised by the regulators is “related to a specific testing protocol” used by French regulators to assess SARs levels, and that the software update will “accommodate the protocol.”
