iPhone 12 SAR Software issues: France Approved New Software

The French authorities had banned the sales of the iPhone 12 in the country due to the high electromagnetic waves that the smartphone was emitting.

EU’s standard for SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) is 4.0 watts per kilogram while the iPhone 12 was found to have a SAR of 5.74 W/kg. That was the primary reason for the ban a few weeks ago.

However, according to a new report from the National Frequency Agency (ANFR), a new software update pushed by Apple has lowered the SAR to 3.94W/kg. The press release reads “It is now up to Apple to distribute the new update to all iPhone 12 users in France”.
