Belgium reviews Apple's iPhone 12 after France halts

Belgium announced on Thursday that it would examine any health hazards connected to the Apple iPhone 12

Apple announced on Wednesday that the iPhone 12, which will be released in 2020, has received certification from numerous foreign authorities as meeting radiation requirements.

However, Paris' decision to prohibit iPhone 12 sales until Apple solves the radiation problems found in two tests raises the possibility of additional European bans.

It is my duty to make sure all citizens ... are safe", Mathieu Michel, Belgium's state secretary for digitalisation

The Italian industry ministry said it was monitoring the situation but not taking any action for now.

Apple doesn't break out its sales by country or model. Its revenues totalled about $95 billion in Europe last year
