Apple will update its iPhone 12 in France after fears about radiation, the country's digital minister says.
Jean-Noel Barrot said Apple would deliver a software update for users in the country in the coming days.
Sales of iPhone 12 were halted in France after a regulator detected too much electromagnetic radiation. Apple was told to fix the issue.
The firm said the new update would only apply to users in France, where it said a specific testing protocol existed.

The American tech giant claimed the radiation results came from that testing process and were "not a safety concern."
Apple's intentions for the iPhone 12, which was released barely three years ago, in other nations are called into question by the next update.
Before resuming sales of the iPhone 12, Mr. Barrot stated that the radio frequency regulator (ANFR) would test the new software to ensure compliance.
In the past, the World Health Organization has worked to assuage concerns about the radiation that mobile phones generate.
It claims on its website that there is insufficient data to draw the conclusion that human exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields is detrimental.

Apple explained the radiation discovery in France as "related to a specific testing protocol used by French regulators and not a safety concern" in a statement to the AFP news agency.
The iPhone 12 met with emissions regulations everywhere, according to the statement, but it will "issue a software update for users in France to accommodate the protocol used by French regulators"
The ANFR earlier warned Apple that it would have to recall every iPhone 12 sold in the nation if the problem could not be fixed with a software update.
The regulator discovered that the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) of the iPhone 12 was higher than what was permitted by French law.
In September 2020, Apple unveiled the iPhone 12, which is still available today.
The UK and US have not announced any action following the French ban.
