iphone 12 banned in France!

A French agency has raised concerns about the level of electromagnetic radiation emitted by Apple's iPhone 12 and has recommended its removal from the market. However, Apple disputes this claim.

France's National Frequency Agency (ANFR) conducted tests on the iPhone 12, revealing that its Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which measures the amount of radiofrequency energy absorbed by the body, surpasses the standards established by the European Union. Consequently, ANFR has issued an order to Apple to cease sales of the iPhone 12 and to provide updates for existing iPhone 12 devices in circulation.

ANFR has announced its intention to dispatch agents to retail stores in order to verify that Apple has indeed discontinued the sale of the iPhone 12. If Apple fails to comply with this directive then it would potentially lead to a recall of units that have already been sold to customers.

Apple disagrees with the accusations and plans to challenge them. The company insists that the iPhone 12 received approval from many global organizations, and it has shared numerous test results, both from Apple and outside labs, to demonstrate the phone meets the requirements set by the French agency.
