Apple disputes French findings revealing iPhone 12 not meeting radiation rules

Apple has contested the findings of France’s regulatory authority regarding the electromagnetic radiation emissions of the iPhone 12, a smartphone model that was first released in 2020. France’s National Frequency Agency (ANFR) reported that the iPhone 12 has a Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) exceeding the European Union’s standard of 4 watts per kilogram.

In response to these findings, ANFR previously suggested that corrective updates be implemented for the iPhone 12, or Apple might need to recall the phones to ensure compliance with SAR standards.

Apple has refuted these claims, stating that it has provided ANFR representatives with multiple sets of data from both Apple and independent third-party laboratories to demonstrate the iPhone 12’s compliance with regulatory standards.

The ANFR conducted testing on a total of 141 phones and concluded that the iPhone 12 exceeded the legal SAR limit by more than 40 percent, according to their report.

This dispute highlights the importance of regulatory compliance and the potential implications for both manufacturers and consumers when it comes to the safety of electronic devices. Further discussions and investigations may be necessary to resolve this matter.
