Apple will include EarPods in iPhone 12 boxes in France

From CNET: Apple will stop including EarPods or a power adapter in iPhone boxes in order to reduce waste, it said during Tuesday's iPhone 12 reveal event. However, that doesn't seem to the case globally -- the company will include the EarPods with iPhones in France due to the country's radiation laws, MacRumors reported Thursday.

France's radiation laws require a headset to be included in smartphone boxes to protect children under the age of 14 from electromagnetic radiation. If the phone doesn't come with the accessories, it is punishable by a fine of 75,000 euros.

It hasn't been confirmed whether or not Apple will include EarPods in other countries.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
