In the latest news, French regulatory agencies have ordered the suspension of iPhone 12 sales within the country due to excessive electromagnetic emissions. Apple, in response, has released a software update, iOS 17, and sent it for further inspection by the French authorities. The update has been approved, leading to the cancellation of the sales suspension and eliminating the need for a product recall.
However, it is important to note that Apple had already suspended iPhone 12 sales prior to this update. The purpose of this software update is to prevent any future recall orders from being issued.
TLDR: French regulators temporarily halted the sale of iPhone 12 due to excessive electromagnetic emissions. Apple has addressed the issue by releasing an iOS 17 software update, which has been approved and allowed the resumption of sales without a product recall.
