With the introduction of the iPhone 12, Apple’s entire current lineup has lost EarPods and charger.
Apple’s reasoning is that there are many chargers out there already, and people are shifting to wireless accessories anyway, so it makes no environmental sense to include wired earphones and charging brick with its phones any longer. The removal of these accessories has also enabled the company to trim the retail boxes, which is being touted as another environmental win.
France is one country where Apple is still required to include EarPods with its phones. The country encourages the use of headphones to protect consumers, particularly children, from electromagnetic radiation.
Even in France, you don’t get a power adapter with the phone.
