Apple said on Friday it would issue a software update for iPhone 12 users in France to address radiation concerns raised by the country’s regulators (via Reuters).
“We will issue a software update for users in France to accommodate the protocol used by French regulators. We look forward to iPhone 12 continuing to be available in France,” Apple said in a statement.
“This is related to a specific testing protocol used by French regulators and not a safety concern,” it said.
The French regulator ANFR said it would test the software update, which would eventually bring the model into compliance with European standards applied in France, and lift the marketing withdrawal order.
France on Tuesday ordered Apple to halt iPhone 12 sales and “fix” existing devices over fears the devices emit too much electromagnetic radiation.
