France Orders Apple to Stop Selling iPhone 12 Due to Radiation Concerns
French authorities have issued a directive to Apple to halt the sale of iPhone 12 models, citing concerns about excessive electromagnetic radiation emissions. The French watchdog responsible for regulating radio frequencies, ANFR (Agence Nationale des Fréquences), also instructed Apple to address the issue in existing iPhones.
If Apple fails to resolve the problem through a software update, ANFR has advised the tech giant to recall all iPhone 12 devices ever sold in France.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has previously stated that low-level electromagnetic fields emitted by mobile phones are not harmful to humans. Their website asserts there is no evidence to conclude that such exposure poses health risks.
The iPhone 12, initially released in September 2020, remains available for purchase globally. Apple has contested ANFR’s assessment, asserting that it has provided the regulator with laboratory results from both Apple itself and third-party entities, demonstrating the device’s compliance with all relevant regulations and radiation level standards worldwide.
France’s Digital Minister, Jean-Noel Barrot, informed the French newspaper Le Parisien that the decision to halt iPhone 12 sales in France was based on radiation levels exceeding the acceptable threshold. Specifically, the iPhone 12’s Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) was reported to be above the legally permitted limit.
Apple has been given a two-week window to respond to the directive. If the company fails to do so, France is prepared to issue a recall of all iPhone 12 devices currently in circulation.
France intends to share its findings with regulatory authorities throughout the European Union, potentially triggering a ripple effect across the trading bloc. The SAR of devices is typically assessed in two different usage scenarios: one when the phone is in close contact with a person’s body (e.g., held or in a pocket), and the other when it is further away (e.g., in a bag or jacket pocket).
For the iPhone 12, the SAR level exceeded the limit in the close-contact scenario but met the threshold in the distant-use scenario.
The news of France’s directive coincided with Apple’s unveiling of the new iPhone 15, marking the first time since 2012 that Apple has introduced an alternative charging port. Apple has also announced the sale of an adapter to enable the use of existing cables.
In response to previous media reports suggesting government agencies in China had instructed staff to refrain from using iPhones, the Chinese foreign ministry issued a rebuttal. It clarified that China had not enacted any laws, regulations, or policies prohibiting the use of Apple’s products.
