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. 

Apple confirmed with CNET this only applies in France and no other countries will receive the EarPods in the iPhone boxes.

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.
