Earlier this week, France suspended sales of the iPhone 12 after tests found breaches of radiation exposure limits.
France’s junior minister for the digital economy, Jean-Noel Barrot, told news outlet Le Parisien that the iPhone 12 is above threshold radiation levels.
The nation’s radiation authority ANFR informed Apple that sales of iPhone 12 would need to be halted in France after conducting tests on the device.
Despite contesting the findings by saying that the iPhone had been certified compliant with global standards, tech giant Apple say they will issue a software update to iPhone 12’s in France amid the concerns.
The iPhone 12 first hit the market in 2020 and is largely regarded as one of Apple’s more favoured phones in recent years.
