If you own an iPhone 12 or if your family members have such a device, you've probably already heard that this model has been removed from sale in several countries due to its high radiation levels. But how dangerous are the radiation emissions from iPhone 12?
The radiation level is expressed in “SAR"(Specific Absorption Rate) and means the absorption rate of the human body when exposed to electromagnetic radiation from devices.
Company Apple found itself at the center of a scandal after the French authority that controls radio frequencies (ANFR), forced the sale of all devices iPhone 12, because they emit a level of radiation above the permitted level. In addition to France, it is expected that other countries will take this decision to ban iPhone 12 from the sale in the next period.
How dangerous are the radiation emissions from iPhone 12?
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on its official website that there is no clear evidence to conclude that a low level of radiation can affect people's health. Moreover, according to the data ANFR (the French authority) it was found that during some tests (rejected by the company Apple), that the radiation absorption rate is of 5.74 W / kg if iPhone 12 is kept in the trouser pocket or in the hand. We could say that women are something more proprotected by these radiations. If it is kept in a purse or jacket pocket, the SAR limit is in parameters below 4 W/kg.
So if the tests ANFR that's right, radiation iPhone 12 exceed by 1.74 W/kg, the standard limit in the European Union (4 W/kg).
Company Apple says that this radiation level will be lower after a future update iOS by which the frequency will be reduced.
