The iPhone 12 reportedly has a SAR value of 5.7W per 1kg, with an acceptable limit of 4W per 1kg. According to Barro, this is a slight excess. He pointed out that Apple has two weeks to eliminate the excess – a software update is enough.

“If this does not happen, I intend to order a recall of the iPhone 12 already in circulation. – said Barro. — The rules are the same for everyone. The state will not compromise. Every company must comply, and Apple is no exception.”
