Apple Has Fix for iPhone 12 in France Over Radio Frequency Concerns

From CNET: Apple said Friday that it will issue a software update for the iPhone 12 in France to address regulators' concerns about radio frequency energy.

On Tuesday, the National Frequency Agency in France (the Agence Nationale des Fréquences, or ANFR) said the iPhone 12 exceeds European specific absorption rate limits, and told Apple to temporarily stop selling the phone.

SAR limits are established for devices, like mobile phones, that emit radio frequency energy that could be absorbed by a person. Exposure to very high levels of RF energy can pose health risks, but multiple US health agencies say there's no scientific evidence of health problems related to RF energy emitted by phones.

Apple pushed back against the ANFR's announcement, saying the iPhone 12 meets or exceeds SAR regulations around the world. Apple said it's provided the ANFR with several internal and independent iPhone 12 lab test results that it says show compliance with SAR rules.
