Apple Hoping To Fix iPhone 12 Radiation Concerns In France Via Upcoming Software Update

Apple recently announced its latest smartphone lineup, which is none other than the iPhone 15 series. The brand has launched its latest lineup with many new improvements and enhancements. Recent reports indicate that the brand is facing a few concerns related to its older iPhone 12 variants in Europe. A couple of days ago, EU member France stopped selling the older iPhone 12 series after the country’s radiation watchdog, ANFR, reported that the phone exceeded proper radiation levels. 

Whereas the agency also asked the brand, the iPhone manufacturer gave the red light to the accusations and reportedly blamed the country’s testing protocols. According to the information, it is rumoured that the brand is going down to address France’s radiation regulator’s concerns with a software update for the iPhone 12. 

The French regulator will amplify the software update to ensure that it makes the iPhone 12 adhere to its radiation standards or policies. If everything goes fine according to them, they remove all the obstructions and ban the lineup sales. Previously, Apple remonstrated with the French ban, pointing out that the iPhone 12 had been testified to multiple international forums and in consent with radiation standards. Whatever standards previously testified, indeed, did not match France’s local policies. 

However, it is still being determined how this trouble rises now, after a couple of years of the iPhone 12 lineup’s launch. The French ban was imposed on the same day Apple voluntarily stopped selling the device following the announcement of the iPhone 15 series. Plus, there is not even a single proof that radio waves emitted from phones are unsafe for human beings or any other living things in any manner. 

Meanwhile, the only hope Apple has for now is that with the upcoming software update, the whole controversy will instantly settle down for good.
