The Korean Ministry of Science and ICT released a statement explaining that the probe is aimed to "resolve public anxiety" about the iPhone 12, which in French tests was found to emit more radiation than the legal limit established by the European Union (EU).
"All smartphones retailed in Korea, including the iPhone 12, have qualified for the global standard related to radiation safety and have been certified," the ministry said.
"However, in order to resolve public anxiety, we requested that Apple report on the issue and will have four variations of the iPhone 12 model go under deliberate inspection and have the results made public."
Should this deliberate inspection show radiation levels in excess of the legal limit, then all four versions of the iPhone 12 series, which also includes the 12 Pro, the 12 Mini, and the 12 Pro Max, could face import and retail bans throughout Korea.

Several other countries have also since made announcements that they plan to take a closer look into the safety of the iPhone 12. Germany's network regulator BNetzA says the iPhone 12 could be emitting too much radiation in violation of the law, and Spain's OCU consumers' group has indicated much the same.
France, the first country to take action, found that the iPhone 12's absorption of electromagnetic energy by the body is around 5.74 watts per kilogram. This is 1.74 watts per kilogram higher than the legal limit of 4.0 watts per kilogram in both Europe and South Korea.
Jean-Noel Barrot, France's junior minister for the digital economy, announced that if Apple sends an over-the-air software update to all iPhone 12s, this should be enough to fix the problem.
"Apple is expected to respond within two weeks," he stated.
What becomes of the South Korean investigation into the iPhone 12's safety remains to be seen, but we do know that all this hoo-ha about the iPhone 12 conveniently coincides with communist China's release of the Huawei Mate 60 Pro smartphone, which is lightyears ahead of anything Apple has to offer in its current smartphone lineup.
"Remember when tobacco executives said their product was non-addictive in front of Congress?" one commenter wrote on a news story about the iPhone 12.
"Radiofrequency radiation exposure (EMF) has been shown to affect the permeability of the blood-brain barrier, as well as alter the expression of microRNA within the brain," wrote another, linking to this article from the Environmental Health Trust.
"Translation: Never wear AirPods and minimize cell use."
This commenter brings up an excellent point about Bluetooth devices like Apple's AirPods, which rest squarely inside a person's ear canals emitting who-even-knows-how-much EMF pollution straight into one's head.
Another tied the injection of graphene via Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) "vaccines" to the 5G wireless technology included in the iPhone 12 and all of the latest smartphone models.
"Graphene is not organically dissolvable by the human body," this person, claiming to be an "IT guy," explained. "So, you get it in there and it just stays there. Worse, as you move and the body flexes, graphene sharp parts pierce nearby cell walls. Your body can heal this, over and over up to a certain quantity."
"The 5G angle: If you were able to design the shape of the graphene, you could accomplish two things. You could shape it like razor wire to 'cut' as many cell walls as possible as quickly as possible, but more importantly you could attune the shape / length to be excited by a specific frequency, like an antenna. In an excited state it buzzes like an electric carving knife."
