After sales stopped in France because of radiation levels, Apple will release an update for the iPhone 12.

(Qnnflash) — Apple intends to release a software update for iPhone 12 owners in France in response to the regulatory authorities’ directive to halt sales of the 2020 model due to concerns regarding radiation.

Customers in France will receive a software update that incorporates the protocol that French regulatory authorities have mandated. According to a spokesperson from Apple (AAPL), there is anticipation for the continued availability of the iPhone 12 in France.

The ANFR, France’s National Frequency Agency, issued a directive on Tuesday mandating the immediate removal of the iPhone 12 from the French market due to its non-compliance with European radiation exposure standards. The ANFR has determined that, in the case of iPhone 12s that are currently being utilized, Apple is required to implement “all essential remedial actions in order to promptly ensure compliance of the devices” or else initiate a recall of those devices.

Apple claims that rather than any safety concerns, French regulators’ particular testing protocol was the reason for the decision to halt sales.

According to Apple, the iPhone 12 has been officially certified and acknowledged for its compliance with all relevant SAR legislation and standards worldwide since its introduction in 2020.

According to the French regulatory authority, the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a metric that quantifies the rate at which the human body absorbs energy from the measured source. However, experts and authorities agree that there is no reason to be concerned.

On the social media site X (previously known as Twitter), Jean-Noel Barrot, France’s minister for the digital economy, made a statement reiterating Apple’s commitment to releasing an update for the iPhone 12 soon. This decision was reached following discussions and in response to a request made by the ANFR (Agence nationale des fréquences radioélectriques), the French national frequency agency. The upgrade is expected to be made available within the next few days.

The French regulatory authority is making preparations to conduct prompt testing of this update, with the ultimate goal of aligning the model with the European standards enforced in France. As the authority stated, this will then allow Apple to resume sales.

The cessation of sales occurred concurrently with Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, the latest versions of its renowned product, during the company’s annual keynote event in California.
