New I-Phones Banned In France

A French government watchdog agency is ordering Apple to withdraw the iPhone 12 from the French market, saying it emits levels of electromagnetic radiation that are too high.

The National Frequency Agency, which oversees public exposure to electromagnetic radiation, called on Apple to “implement all available means to rapidly fix this malfunction” for phones already being used.

Corrective updates to the iPhone 12 will be monitored by the agency, and if they don’t work, “Apple will have to recall” phones that have already been sold.

Apple says the device complies with all regulations governing radiation.
