Apple has to sell iPhone 12 with earphones in France


While Apple only sells the iPhone 12 in Germany with a USB-C to Lightning cable, the company in France has to add earphones. So say the law.


The iPhone 12 comes in a smaller box without a power adapter and earphones - except in France.

The iPhone 12 comes in a smaller box without a power adapter and earphones – except in France.


For some observers it sounds like mockery: Apple declares when selling the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro To do without the previously supplied Earpods and the power supply and instead just put a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box – for the sake of the environment. The accessories now have to be purchased separately, at least at a slightly cheaper price. In France, however, Apple still has to include earphones with the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro. It’s up to you special law.

In the French Apple Store, buyers of an iPhone 12 will still receive Earpods and a Lightning adapter in the scope of delivery, while this is not the case in Germany or the USA. But Apple has not forgotten the change in its online shop in France, it simply adheres to the rules there. In France, providers of smartphones are obliged to equip them with the option of making calls without a mobile phone to the ear.

France wants to protect children from radiation

According to the relevant law, it is intended to protect children under the age of 14 from a possible risk from electromagnetic waves – cell phone radiation. However, such a risk has not yet been scientifically proven. So France is acting on the precautionary principle here. Anyone who violates this requirement will be fined € 75,000, like Macrumors writes.

Rumors about itthat Apple is delivering all four new iPhone 12 models without earphones and power supply in the box, it had already been announced before the official presentation on Tuesday. It is now also fixed that the older models iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone SE will only be delivered with one cable. Apple now ships the iPhone 12 in a much thinner box. According to the group, this means that there is space for 70 percent more boxes on a pallet than before. Also the new one Apple Watch 6 comes without a power adapter.
