Continuing with the news related to the directive from French authorities instructing Apple to address the issue of excessive electromagnetic waves emitted by the iPhone 12, Apple recently announced that they are preparing a software update to resolve the problem, as specified by the French regulatory agency. The company states that the issue lies within the software, combined with the verification process utilized by the French authorities, rather than a security concern with the device itself.
In the next stage, the French authorities will test the updated software to determine if it meets the standard for wave emissions. If the software passes the criteria, the ban on sales will be lifted. Apple confirms that the iPhone 12 meets the global standards for radiation emissions but welcomes the French review of the test results.
An intriguing aspect of this situation is that, if France proceeds with the ban on the iPhone 12, Apple has already halted sales of the device through its main channels, following the release of the iPhone 15. However, it is expected that Apple desires the French authorities to review the software and rescind the ban, as it could provide reassurance and alleviate concerns for users.
TLDR: Following French authorities’ directive, Apple plans to release a software update to address the issue of excessive electromagnetic wave emissions with the iPhone 12. The company states that the problem lies within the software and the verification process used by French authorities, rather than a security concern. The French authorities will test the software to determine if it meets the required standards. Apple has temporarily halted sales of the iPhone 12, anticipating the ban, but hopes the French review will lead to the ban being lifted.
