Apple is set to release a software update for iPhone 12 users in France to resolve a dispute with regulators regarding radiation exposure limits 

The French government has welcomed this move and plans to swiftly test the software update, potentially allowing the resumption of iPhone 12 sales in France 

Belgium, in response to the French suspension, also welcomed Apple's actions but will continue its own review of iPhone 12 and other models 

Numerous studies over the past two decades have examined the health risks associated with mobile phones, with no adverse health effects conclusively linked to them, according to the World Health Organisation 

Apple's software update for users in France aims to align with the testing protocol used by French regulators 

Apple maintains its position that the iPhone 12 complies with global standards and contests the French radiation findings 

French Digital Affairs Minister Jean Noel Barrot expressed approval of the software update, expecting it to bring the iPhone 12 in line with European standards 

Apple regularly provides software updates for security purposes, and these updates can target specific models or regions 

The sale suspension of iPhone 12 in France was prompted by its Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) exceeding legally allowed levels, as reported by the Agence Nationale des Frequences (ANFR)
