The UAE's telecoms regulator has issued a statement emphasising that all mobile phones sold in the country go through a rigorous approval process.

The Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) said the UAE adheres to the highest international security and safety standards for mobile phones.

It added that the approval process also takes into account electromagnetic radiation to ensure the health and safety of users.

The statement comes after France recently ordered a halt to sales of iPhone 12 citing breaches of radiation exposure limits.
