Apple is still including EarPods in the box of every iPhone in France due to legal obligations.

According to Apple’s regional French online store, every ‌iPhone‌ including the ‌iPhone‌ 12 comes with both a USB-C to Lightning cable and EarPods with a Lightning connector.

The inclusion of earphones is likely due to legislation in France that requires all smartphones to include a “handsfree kit” to protect children under 14 from the potential risk of electromagnetic radio waves. The obligation is based on the precautionary principle, because the risks of exposing developing brains to electromagnetic waves are not clearly known, according to French law:

At the request of the purchaser of a mobile phone, the operator must provide an accessory such as a hands-free kit or headset suitable for children under 14 years of age.
