Apple will stop including EarPods or an AC adapter in iPhone cases in order to, he said during Tuesday reveal the event. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case globally – the company will include EarPods with iPhones in France due to the country’s radiation laws, MacRumors reported Thursday.
Apple has confirmed with CNET that this only applies in France and no other country will receive EarPods in iPhone boxes.
French radiation laws require that a helmet be included in smartphone cases to protect children under the age of 14 from electromagnetic radiation. If the phone is not delivered with the accessories, it is liable to a fine of 75,000 euros.
