Apple may have stopped shipping its wired EarPods with new iPhones, but apparently the new policy does not apply to France.
According to MacRumors, every new iPhone shipped in this country will still come with EarPods. This is probably due to French law, which requires all smartphones to come with a hands-free kit to protect children under the age of 14 from electromagnetic radiation.
If you speak French, this is the law that applies. it states that promoting the use of a mobile phone without such accessories can be punished with a fine of up to 75,000 euros for one person or 350,000 euros for a company like Apple.

Unfortunately, the power adapter is not included.
At the iPhone 12 launch event earlier this week, Apple announced that it would stop shipping EarPods and the power adapter with all new iPhones, citing environmental concerns. This means that some users will have to pay extra money to get this accessory, but Apple at least reduced the price of both from $ 29 to $ 19.
